About Me

ABOUT ME

Hello, I am Jack and coding has me hooked! I have worked in several work sectors allowing me to develop a wide range of transferable skills. My journey so far has ultimately led me to programming.

Being logically and analytically minded with a passion for problem solving and a bit of a techy, I realised that I wanted to work as a programmer. After a conversation with a family member, who is an established developer, he thought that I would be perfect for the role. The endless learning and future possibilities that coding has to offer, excites and enthuses me.

I made the decision to carry out some home learning and was instantly captivated, shortly after I joined the Just IT developer's program to hone my skills. I am now a Junior Developer at Paragon.

Education

Just IT - Developers Professional Programme


This was an intensive three-month course, learning a range of programming languages, and technologies. These included C#, ASP.Net, and JavaScript. This course involved coding immersion in a classroom environment, learning the relevant skills in order to become a junior developer.


University Of Leeds - BSC(Hons) Zoology


I achieved a 2:1 for my undergraduate degree. During this degree I studied a wide variety of subjects relating to animal behaviour, physiology and development as well as statistics and IT modules. I also had the opportunity to learn how to think and process information in a logical and analytical manner.

The Leigh Academy -
A-levels & GCSE's


I achieved three A-levels and 10 GCSEs and GVNQs allowing me to further my education at University. These included Science and ICT.
