Growing up, I've always had a knack for figuring out how things work. It always bugged me to no end whenever I couldn't figure something out on the first try, so I would spend many hours awake until I found a solution. Since then, I've met and worked with some people who have taken that knack and turned it into a flourishing career in web development.
On the backend, I use Python/Django with a PostgreSQL db. I like to use open source tech to build RESTful APIs, Such as Django REST Framework.
I've spun up Linux servers on Digital Ocean, and I've also used PaaS such as Heroku.
By no means is this an all inclusive list, as I'm always looking to tackle new challenges in different technologies and stacks.
