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 experience building green-field applications and maintaining large legacy codebases. I’m happiest when working on a small team of trusted developers solving problems with emerging technologies such as Elixir Phoenix and Kubernetes. 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.
