Nikita the cate

Hi — I am Ismail!

I am a software developer based in Calgary Alberta, Canada.

I have extensive consulting background in full-stack web development, mobile development, web scraping, and DevOps. I've recently finished a college diploma in software development (part of my BSc CS plan), and I am exploring new opportunities in tech, preferably on-site and in Calgary, while still being open to part-time offers.

When I am not fiddling with code or pretending to be busy, I enjoy going out on long walks, hiking, or shredding local trails on my mountain bike.
