Jake Walker

Hi! I'm Jake Walker, a tech enthusiast and developer living in the United Kingdom.

At the moment, I enjoy web development (including frontend and backend) and Python development and I am trying to get more into open source software. I also enjoy managing a handful of cloud hosted applications a Raspberry Pi home server and other small Arduino/Raspberry Pi projects at home. I am currently learning about cyber security.

When I was around 7 years old, I started programming, starting off with the Small Basic programming language. Ever since I have been refining my programming skills by learning more complex languages and by creating small applications, websites and more. In 2015, I started my GitHub account and began to contribute to open source software and published some of my own projects.
