About Me

Code. Test. Refract. (Repeat)! These daily activities for programmers are my favorite things about developing software. Like painting on a canvas, or writing a book, developing software is the process of careful planning, execution, and evaluation. My passion is in providing that level of detailed work to clients, and helping automate their business needs through computer software.

My name is Austin Delamar, and I'm a backend java programmer, cloud app developer, and all-around computer enthusiast.

I grew up in Zeeland, Michigan (USA). In highschool, I played a lot of calculator games on my Ti-83 and Ti-89. That's when I first realized I enjoyed tinkering with electronics and computers. I didn't know I could make a career out of tinkering. I graduated in 2009, and completed a few multiple Advanced Placement courses, that would give me a head start in college.

In Fall of 2009, I attended Grand Valley State University, and started taking courses aligned with a Bachelor's degree in Engineering. I loved taking the C programming class. After two semesters, I realized I could continue programming so I changed majors into Computer Science. I liked engineering, but I liked coding more. The courses offered for CS majors highly interested me, such as CPU Architecture, Linux Security, and UX Design. After graduating in December 2012, I entered the real world in search for my career.

Now I work at IBM in East Lansing as a Java Application Developer. My current projects have me building microservice API's in Java with Cloudant databases and deploying to IBM's Cloud. But I've also been supporting and enhancing legacy Java EE apps, static websites, desktop apps, database CRUD tools, and more. I love what I do and look forward to whatever is next!
