About


Education

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 plan on finishing school after my undergrad and pursue a career in software engineering. Most of my practical knowledge comes from being self taught and learning from other knowledgeable software engineers.

I realized early in college that school wasn't going to teach me the things I wanted to learn and employers wanted to higher for. I started self-studying and this allowed me to build a skillset which landed me my first software developer position at a local startup.

Career

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 competencies are HTML/CSS, JavaScript, TypeScript, Angular 2+, Java, Python, and PostgreSQL.

I'm currently a software engineer contractor at OnStack Software. OnStack is a custom software development firm that primarily develops web and mobile apps. Our common tech stack is React, React Native, PostgreSQL, and GraphQL.

Hobbies

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.
