Software Engineering, Flatiron School London

I graduated from the Software Engineering course at Flatiron School London.

This is a comprehensive full-stack curriculum that equipped me with knowledge of software engineering across the web technology stack (see below). I gained practical, applicable software engineering skills and have been putting them to use in a range of projects.
