About Me

Let me tell you a few things...

John Doe

BIO

My name is Nikki Xaysanasy and I am originally from Arkansas. I decided to move to California to pursue a career as a Developer. I am familiar with many different technologies which I learned throughout my career both freelancing and through professional work. I am always constantly learning and trying to keep up with the current trends. When I'm not programming or developing websites, I am reading, learning new recipies and playing my Nintendo Switch.


Education

  • Front-End Web Development Certificate from University of Arkansas - Global Campus - July 2017 to January 2018
  • B.A in Criminal Justice from University of Arkansas - January 2011 - December 2014

Developer Experience

Master System

System Analyst
Sep 2018 - Present

My current position after ZAM. It's not a full time development gig but it's more of a technical support. I am hoping I can work full-time as a Developer but I was able to help with the Front-End design on their latest product that they are working on. I learned basic SQL and help write documentation for their API. I'm hoping to take what I learn here with me towards a career in Web Development or Software Engineering.

  • Used React to build the Front-End Design for our Full-Stack Web App
  • Learned basic SQL Commands
  • Improved Technical Customer Support Skills

ZAM Network

Site Host Intern
Apr 2018 - Sep 2018

Shortly after arriving in California, I landed an internship with ZAM Network. They owned many of the fansites for big games including World of Warcraft and League of Legends. I started as a DevOps Intern rather than a Web Dev one but I learned a lot awhile I was there. I would say this was the job that inspired me to learn more in Computer Science.

  • Learned the basics of DevOps
  • Learned Python and used it for my project while I was there
  • Became more familiar with Kubernetes and Docker

Whyte Spyder

Junior Web Content Developer
Jan 2018 - Feb 2018

I began my Web Dev Career after I finished my bootcamp in Arkansas. I learned a lot during my short time here. I helped with the IT in-house and had meetings with our clients regarding their sites which were built in Wordpress. I took what I learned here with me when I moved to California.

  • Learned basic fundamentals of the LAMP Stack
  • Learned how to deal and interact with clients
  • Improved my Wordpress Skills
