Profile picture for Amandine Eap

Amandine Eap

I started as a self-taught developer learning from my teenage bedroom. I then took on a variety of projects over the years and ended up turning this hobby into a career. I did eventually go to university to concentrate on it full time, studying a Computing Web Systems Development degree and have been working as a Fullstack and Frontend developer for a range of companies (freelance, agencies, product…) ever since. When not working, I enjoy exploring the outdoors with my dog Gunner... having grown up in a big city and now able to take the full advantage of what Edinburgh & Scotland has to offer on the doorstep! Renewed and recent interests include Weight training, Guitar, Reading, Photography, Writing, Illustration to name a few!

Profile picture for Jamie Peutherer

Jamie Peutherer

Hello! I'm Jamie; I'm a software engineer based in Glasgow and currently working at the BBC. I made the career-change from Digital Marketing (SEO) to web dev in 2022 and never looked back. I'm a full-stack developer but lean slightly more towards the front-end. Tech I use in my day job, and that I'm happy to chat about, includes: HTML/CSS/SASS/JS, React, Jest/React Testing Library, NodeJS, Scala, REST / GraphQL APIs, AWS (API Gateways, Lambdas, SQS, SNS, etc) I've varying levels of experience around all these technologies so certainly not an expert in all of them! Also open to chatting about self-teaching, breaking into the industry, and getting to grips working a company dev role.

Ljupche Vasliev

My name is Ljupche and I am a Senior Software Engineer. I worked as a Wordpress Developer initially, but in the last 3 years started working with NodeJS and ReactJS. That being said I can discuss and (hopefully) help with a few different topics when it comes to web development, mainly relating to: NodeJS/ReactJS, AWS, Micro-services, Unit/automation testing, REST or GraphQL APIs, Gitlab pipelines, Wordpress or laravel although I haven't used them in the last 3+ years. I could also provide any feedback or advice on career paths, or mainly share my journey and the mistakes I have made.
