Background

Summary

Hello, world! My name is Vilan Le and I am a graduate from the University of California, San Diego with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science. I specialize in front end web development but also have experience building back-end micro-services and APIs. I have experience working in industry as a front end development intern in San Diego during school. During my time there, I worked in an Agile environment, finishing tickets and working sprint to sprint. As for technologies, I am proficient in Javascript, HTML, CSS, Java, C, C++, and Python. As an intern, I worked with two frameworks, React and Angular. I also have experience writing tests for my web code using Jest and Jasmine. I am familiar with using other libraries and technologies as well such as Bootstrap, Less, Typescript, Webpack, Gulp, and Node, and Npm. Working in industry as an intern has given me experience with the newest web frameworks and has opened my eyes to bettering myself as a web developer. I currently work full time as a software engineer for AT&T’s DirecTV. I have built automated onboarding systems, backend traffic metadata controls, and video engineering workflows here, and continue to work with new technologies like AWS. When I am not working, I love taking photographs with my film camera, practicing an instrument, or taking a road trip to a new place. I also love backpacking, rock climbing, and everything outdoors. Thank you for stopping by my LinkedIn page and feel free to reach out.
