Hi, my name is Austin Delamar. I'm a backend Java & Scala programmer.
Code. Test. Refract. (Repeat)! These daily activities for programmers are my favorite things about developing software. Like painting on a canvas, or writing a book, developing software is the process of careful planning, execution, and evaluation. My passion is in providing that level of detailed work to clients, and helping automate their business needs through computer software.
I grew up in Zeeland, Michigan (USA). In highschool, I played a lot of calculator games on my Ti-83 and even created a few text-based ones myself. That's when I first realized I enjoyed tinkering with electronics and computers. I didn't know I could make a career out of tinkering. I graduated in 2009, and completed a few Advanced Placement courses, that would give me a head start in college.
In Fall of 2009, I attended Grand Valley State University, and started taking courses aligned with a Bachelor's degree in Engineering. I loved taking the C programming class. After two semesters, I found I could continue programming as a major so I switched to Computer Science. I liked the engineering classes, but I liked coding more. The CS courses highly interested me, such as CPU Architecture, Linux Security, and UX Design. After 3 years I graduated in December 2012.
I started my career at IBM as a Cloud Application Developer in Lansing, MI. For almost 6 years I learned the enterprise systems of various clients (mostly Java) and grew tremendously in my skills and adaptability to new projects. Ultimately, that experience allowed me to land a position at Apple as a Backend Software Engineer all the way out in Cupertino, CA. My work now is almost entirely Scala and a dash of Python. I love what I do and I'm looking forward to the next challenge!
