Full Stack Developer

Introduction

Hi, I’m Brian Abbott, a technologist based out of Asheville, NC. When I wake up in the morning I start coding right away. I’m passionate about the value we can create by leveraging cloud resources and open source technologies.

I'm not currently open to new positions at this time.

Biography

I was born in Savannah, GA. I was a music performance major at UA from 2006 to 2011 where I studied jazz and classical guitar.

In 2011, I took HTML, CSS and JavaScript as my foreign language at Alabama. I spent a few months learning PHP. In 2017, I learned PHP more seriously and in 2018 I began coding WordPress themes and plugins. Over the past three years I have worked with Node.js, MariaDB (MySQL), native Android Development with Kotlin and front end development with React and Next.js. I run Linux on the desktop, so I’m comfortable managing Linux cloud resources.

If you visit my blog you will notice that the theme is a default WordPress theme. I will be custom coding a theme that is in the same design as this page.

Miscellaneous

I have a Golden Retriever puppy named Lee who is old. His age is updated dynamically by some code that was written by GitHub copilot. My dream and goal in life is to form a company that produces water and waste water software. My extended family owns a water / waste water company. I look up to everyone in my family who knows the business and keeps it running. I am diagnosed with Schizophrenia and my family was always there until I learned to code. They gave me work and this allowed me to have the confidence to take on 1099 clients. So as I said my biggest goal in life is to contribute to the business my extended family has created.
