Hey guys, my name is Louis and I am a pseudo-full-stack who works largely on the infrastructure side of things, but I enjoy sucking across the stack, my limits know no bounds. I kid, I kid. I’m primarily the annoying voice in the office that says “You know, we could automate that.”, I enjoy my role. I am a bootcamp graduate, where I did web facing stuff in Rails, Node, Ruby and your basic HTML/CSS type stuff. These days I work with Python, Ansible, AWS, Postgres and a tiny bit of Angular. In a past life I dropped out of Uni 3 times, before teaching myself basic web stuff and going to the bootcamp.
Honestly, I’ve been looking to participate in open source since starting my boot camp, but I’ve been searching for the right type of project to sink my teeth into and really get a good understanding of. I feel that this could be the thing for me, I enjoy the infrastructure side of things, but I can get antsy if I’m too taken away from development, same applies backwards too.
I think I have a soft spot for this one because it feels like it could be returning some semblance of privacy back to the web, if I could use an internet without monetised ads grappling for my attention and generally ruining my day, I’d be a happy man.
Nice to meet you all.
