My name is Timothy Cole 🦄 or as my parents refer to me, tech support but you can call me Tim!
I'm a 23 year old, self-taught, software engineer currently living in Vancouver, BC with plans to return to Los Angeles, CA soon.
When I was 10 years old I fell in love with computers. I thought they were so neat that I wanted to become the CEO of Intel one day. When I was 13 I realized how intriguing websites are so I started to tinker with inspect element. It wasn't until then when I realized what I wanted to do with my life. A few months passed and I was still learning and investing my time away.
EUREKA! - Finally, by the age of 14, I created my very first website! All front-end and far from perfect, but it was mine that's all that mattered. As time passed, I completed many projects, gradually becoming more educated and working harder as ever.
After hating school for my entire life, I decided to drop out of high school at age 17 to pursue my career as a programmer.
I'm now fluent with many technologies. Primarily I write server side code in Go, while storing data in either Spanner or MongoDB with Redis as a cache. Typically on the client side of things I use React with the normal bells and whistles like Redux and Next using either node-fetch or Apollo to get data from our REST or GraphQL APIs. Hosting it all on Vultr Cloud Servers.
