Introduction

Hi, I’m Brian Abbott, a technologist based out of Asheville, North Carolina. 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.

Biography

I was born in Savannah, Georgia, and attended the University of Alabama from 2006 to 2011. While I was there, I majored in music performance and studied jazz and classical guitar. In 2011, I took an xHTML, CSS and JavaScript course as my foreign language requirement.

I moved to Asheville, North Carolina, in 2020. I am in the process of applying to the University of North Carolina Asheville as a Computer Science student for the Fall 2023 semester. My sophomore year at UNCA, I am planning to start volunteering as a research assistant. In the meantime, I am on an Amazon Web Services Certification Binge, and I am studying for the Class 3 Water and Wastewater Operator Certifications.

Work

I am presently working for Consolidated Utilities, Inc, a water and wastewater utility based out of the greater Savannah area. I am a generalist and I frequently work with Node.js, React, Android with Kotlin, AWS and Linux.

My professional goal is to write software that helps utilities manage their water and wastewater systems. My entire life I took it for granted that I could turn on the tap and get clean water. I think that volunteering as a research assistant at UNCA will give me a foundational understanding of the scientific research process, which I hope will aid me in my pursuit of knowledge about water and wastewater treatment.

Miscellaneous

I have a Golden Retriever puppy named Lee who is old. He frequently joins me on runs.
