Who Am I?
Braintapper is me, Steven Ng.
I'm a technology consultant, and the main tools I've been working with recently include:
- Cognos 11.x.x
- Svelte & Sveltekit
- Pentaho Data Integration
- Ruby on Rails
I've got an extensive background in business intelligence and web development. It may seem like a strange combination at first, but they're more related than one might think.
And no, I'm not looking for work.
