My name is Nic and I am an Application Developer with a B.S. in Computer Science & Engineering from the University of California.
I've designed and developed a diverse set of mobile applications and games using frameworks such as Unity3D, Ionic Framework, and native Android.
I run a programming blog aimed at providing useful tutorials for the latest development technologies such as Angular, Golang, Node.js, and Java.
I contribute to open source projects by submitting plugins and improving the project baselines. Much of my work can be seen on GitHub and Bitbucket.
I own a Sony Playstation 4, a Microsoft Xbox One, and a Nintendo Switch, so you might say that I am a gamer. I also enjoy cycling, fishing, and a variety of hot and cold teas. I am also a huge Doctor Who fan.
What I really like is all things technical. I rock Mac OS and Ubuntu, but if the sun and the moon align correctly, you can find me using Windows.
I'm a Developer Advocate for Couchbase in the San Francisco Bay Area. I speak at developer conferences, meetups, and community events in addition to writing tutorials and example applications. The core of my work is making sure developers and users of Couchbase are successful in whatever it is they're working on.
On the side, I develop mobile applications for Android and iOS. I tend to develop technical applications because they benefit my typical daily activities. My most successful mobile application is SQLTool, a database editor for Android based devices.
I blog about all the things that I learn. I've found it not only as a great way to document my work, but also a great way share my knowledge with others.
