My name is Obosa Prosper Osagie-Amayo. I'm a Senior at CSUB
pursuing a BS in Computer Science. I transferred to CSUB as a Junior
from Bakersfield College majoring in Computer Science and receiving
a Certificate of General Education.
I don't plan on going to grad school because a career in software
engineering doesn't necessarily require a post-grad degree (depending
on the specialization). Most of my practical knowledge comes from
being self taught and learning from other software engineers.
The lack of quality teaching from professors early in my degree
path led me to focus on learning what I needed and wanted to
know by myself. This allowed me to build a skillset which landed
me my first software developer position at a local startup.
My interests include building innovative software solutions, software
automation, and cyber security, specifically
penetration testing. My professional software development experience primarily
focuses on front-end web/web application development and my core
4, C++, and Python.
I'm currently a contractor for FITCLUB Global Inc. building a web
app focused on simplifying aspects of an existing iOS app. This is
the third startup I have worked for and I am going to continue my
career as a software developer striving for the best possible opportunities.
As Vice President of Kern Innovation and Technology Community
(KIT, non-profit), I am invested in helping to build Bakersfield's
local tech community. KIT was responsible for Bakersfield's, CSUB's,
and BC's first public hackathons.
On my free time I generally like to play PC games and work on
programming projects. I always try to start new programming
projects to keep my skills sharp, learn new things, and collaborate
with doers. I also like to research topics that interest me, such
as computer science, finance, and weight training.
My weight training methodolgy is modeled closely after the
"Power Bodybuilding" training style. I constantly refine my
training program through research and experimentation in order to
maximize my results.
Feel free to ask for advice on any of these topics.
