At Imosphere, I'm part of the Care Partner team. Care Partner at it's most fundamental level is Imosphere's data entry product, it's for care workers to document care users information; progress notes, diagnosis, resources and appointements to name a few. With strict data regulations in place and careful auditing processes to be followed it's a very interesting and complex system. The stack is c# MVC backend and knockoutJS front end. Day to day I work on features, bug fixes and planning for future releases.
Imosphere is a fantastic company to work for. We build products which help people, it's an amazing feeling to help build such worthwhile software. There's a great work culture and I feel lucky to work with and learn from such amazing and talented people.
I haven't always worked in tech, after my bachelors degree, I worked at an apparel company in a project manager role but knew it wasn't where my passion was. I went back to uni to do a Masters in Computer Science at the University of Nottingham, giving up my job and becoming a student again was a big step but I haven't looked back since. I've learned a lot, mainly that most things just take a bit of dedication, patience and passion for learning
During my first term at uni I went to HackNotts, the annual Hack society hackathon and I totally fell in love with hackathons! I have since attended loads more and even won a couple of prizes along the way! From joining HackSoc at uni, I found the Tech Nottingham meetup scene and now regularly attend at least four tech meetups a month.
Whilst learning to code I was always being told about git and how it would revolutionise my programming... turned out that's very true! I git. I use github and gitlab a lot and I volunteered at a Hacktoberfest git workshop hosted by HackSoc to help get new students into git and contributing to open source.
I love open source and getting involved with the tech community, I run Ubuntu and enjoy trying to perfect my workspace, becoming a vim wizard and automating my home.
Contributing and volunteering are things I really want to do more of, I volunteered at a code club and loved it. Get in touch if you need help at your event or with a project, I'm always looking for good causes to get involved with.
