Iqbal Ibrahim

I am an enthusiastic and passionate full-stack developer with experience in using a broad range of technology stacks, although I specialise in JavaScript frameworks such as ReactJS, Node.JS, HTML/CSS/jQuery, and also creating REST APIs. I am very keen to expand my skillset and work towards becoming a technical architect - I am currently self-learning TOGAF and the Zachman Framework. Experienced for 3 years with agile methodology, client/stakeholder relationship building, and maintaining standards with software development. Overall I have a very broad knowledge of IT systems including Java, DevOps, and Continuous Integration/Continuous Development.
