My name is Eric Newbury and I am a software engineer from Vermont--where there are more cows than people--currently living in DC.  I have a degree in Computer Science and have experience designing and maintaining enterprise scale applications.  I got started in computer science because I was irritated by my university's course registration process, so I learned enough coding to automate the process, switched my major to CS, and I've been solving digital problems ever since.

While the majority of my experience is in backend development, I've always had an interest in presenting information in an intuitive and attractive way, so while in school, I minored in Digital Art.  In my free time, I always find myself reading about the latest front-end build tools and Single Page Application architecture best practices.
