Kyle Sheehan

Software Developer

My name is Kyle Sheehan. I am a full stack software developer with knowledge in Ruby and Rails on the back end, and JavaScript (React/Redux) on the front end. I make it my goal to write clean, readable code no matter what the program or language I am writing in. I have an insatiable passion for learning and that's what drew me to programming. A developer needs to be constantly self-motivated to learn. Check my ELI5 Coding Blog to see what I'm currently learning, or scroll down to my portfolio to check out what I’ve completed.

When I’m not coding:

Though I call myself gritty, I love craft beer, fancy watches, eating healthy, and good writing – in whatever form I can find it. Ben Franklin enlightened me on the ways of self-improvement, and Ernest Hemingway inspired me to run with the bulls. I’m a sports fanatic, especially of the [Philadelphia] teams where I reside. I train youth soccer teams and coach a girls high school team. Lionel Messi is the reason I wake up in the morning.
