— I'm Jeremy Hitchcock, a Backend Developer.
I have always been drawn to building architecture and making things work fast and efficiently. I have a broad range of skills, from general backend using traditional REST architecture with JAVA, to more modern approaches using Python to build smaller applications through AWS Lambda and Databricks. I love building new projects from start to finish, and ensuring that they are are built to last with the most modern approaches, and take strong passion to reviving old architecture into the best practices of today.
What I do
- Java, Python, JS, Node, APIs, NoSQL
- AWS - Lambda, CloudFormation, S3, etc.
Music I'm always Listening to
