Jim Vasky
DBA & Developer

Software Developer/DBA focused on Web and Database applications

Who am I?

I am a Database Administrator and Developer with a primary focus on database systems and ETL processes, as well as a growing interest in Dev/SysOps. I graduated from the University of Scranton with a B.S. in Neuroscience in 2013, and again in 2019 with an M.S. in Software Engineering.

I realized I had a passion for Computer Science, in particular web dev and database systems, and added a Computer Science minor in my senior year. Professionally I started as a PHP and Java dev using Postgresql and *nix systems, until I changed gears and became a MS SQL Server DBA. My strengths lie in blending my development and DBA experience to create ETL pipelines. Recently I have been taking my time out of work to learn more about Sys/DevOps and cloud operations, as well as Chemistry and Biology.

What are my skills?

What are my hobbies?
