Jeff Paterson, Software Developer


Hi, my name is Jeff Paterson. I'm a software developer.

I have an extensive IT background, and recently completed a six month immersive full stack (JavaScript) fellowship. During the Galvanize program, I learned languages and frameworks, including: Angular, SPA's, API's, HTML5, CSS3, Node, Express, PostreSQL, and some Python. Following a successful mini-career in nonprofit building and management, today I hope to use code to advance human progress.

Thanks for taking a look at my work.

I enjoy contributing to Codewars, a collective effort to create, test, and solve code challenges. I'm currently ranked in the top 1% of all users.
