Hey there, my name is Nicole! I am a back-end developer, experienced with Ruby on Rails and PostgreSQL.
Before I was a developer, I was a technical support specialist that assisted educators on how to use online assessment tools to enhance their student’s abilities. I worked closely with the developer’s support team and assisted with finding bugs and creating work-arounds for our educators on a time-crunch.
My goals as a developer are to create applications that are fun and easy to use, and help inspire the next generation of developers.
