About Me


Education

My name is Obosa Prosper Osagie-Amayo. I am a Junior at CSUB pursuing a BS in Computer Science with a minor in Business Administration.

I transferred as a Junior from Bakersfield College majoring in Computer Science and receiving a Certificate of General Education.

I don't plan to continue onto grad school because I am going to pursue a career in applications engineering and it doesn't necessarily require it.

Most of my practical knowledge comes from independent studying. Many colleges tend to focus primarily on theoreticals which leads to lack of practical implementation abilities amongst students.

Career

My interests include building innovative software solutions, software automation, and cyber security, specifically penetration testing . My software development experience primarily focuses on front-end iOS and web/web app development and my core competencies are HTML/CSS, JavaScript/jQuery, AngularJS, C++, and Python.

As a Junior Software Developer for a custom software consultancy, I work with various programming languages, frameworks, and technologies. I am going to continue my career as a software developer and strive for the best possible opportunities.

Hobbies

On my free time I generally like to play PC games and work on personal 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 finance, entrepreneurship, 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.
