Hi there, I am Derek Gates.
I am a developer that is devoted to user experience. I am fluent in desktop and web technologies. I pride myself with designing systems that work together beautifully.
Previously, I worked at a Pensacola, FL company called ActiGraph which made FDA certified activity monitors. I was a full stack developer that developed front-end software and websites, interfaced with hardware devices, a back-end server architect and DevOps for the rest of our products. I was a member of hardware and software teams and worked hard to communicate ideas.
- Accomplished C#, HTML + CSS, UI developer with 12 years of experience.
- I enjoy continuous integration, cloud systems (Azure, AWS, etc) and DevOps with 4 years of experience.
- Well versed with working in teams, working remotely, and working independently using Agile work flows.
- Toastmasters member. Not afraid of large audiences and presentations. I love to talk about and explain systems to other members of a team; capable of talking to all levels from the most technical, to sales team, to marketing, to customers. Mentorship is a strong point for me.
