Welcome! My name is Vijay Patel and I am a 4th year Computer Engineering and Management student at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario.
I have been fascinated with technology ever since I was young. I love building things (hardware or software), learning new technologies,and I have a minor interest in finance/accounting.
My journey into the professional workplace began at my first co-op as an IT Analyst at TD. At this position I helped created a process to manage security risks related segregation of duties as well as creating Python scripts for cloud monitoring.
From this experience, I transitioned into the role of a DevOps Engineer Intern at my next internship at Dream Payments. During this time, I was working on multiple tasks related to their build and deployment processes, as well as other tasks related to cloud infrastructure, using technologies like AWS and Kubernetes.I then returned to TD as a Software Developer Intern, where I was working on the Enterprise Payments team to set up TD's real-time payments service, using the Java-based Spring framework to build APIs for mobile and web channels. More recently, I spent the past summer at PagerDuty as an infrastructure Software Engineering Intern helping the SRE-Delivery team with developer enablement and tooling for our infrastructure.
