Hello, I'm Brendan
I am a 27 year old full stack web developer, currently studying Computer Systems at University of Limerick, Ireland.
I was previously studying Aeronautical Engineering, but I was not a good fit for that line of work and decided to do a bit of soul searching
I was lucky enough to find mentors like David Reess and Greaka who nudged me in the right direction.
This then lead to starting with node.js, mongodb and git.
From there I explored many different languages and tools, a selection of which can be found on the project table below.
However dispite all I had learnt I felt lacking, so in September 2021 I returned to University to study computer science.
The majority of my work is on Gitlab as open source projects, oft to solve an issue I have.
Below are some projects that have been milestones in my journey thus far.
See my Gitlab profile above for everything else.
