Joshua "TechDev" Walker

I am an Honorable Vet Turned Tech, Passionate About AWS, Programming, Data Science and People

Joshua TechDev Walker

I was honorably discharged from the United States Army after six years as a Logistician and Parachutist and then earned my Masters in Business. During the economic downturn my young family and I were briefly homeless but thanks to education, faith and tenacity were able to bounce back in a big way.

Curiosity lead me to try out code and in less then 4 months my self-taught obsession, Orlando Tech involvement and work with Ad2 Orlando landed me a kick-ass job at one of the biggest corporations in the world, Bonnier Corp. I am now the Senior Developer on our team.

I do frequent Tech Talks on JavaScript, UX, and Data Science in the talent rich arena of Orlando, FL. I am now fully commited to AWS + Machine Learning and will have a certification from Amazon verifying I am a AWS Certified Solutions Architect Associate by April 2017. Pairing my programming skills with AWS will birth robust, smart and scaleable applications in 2017.

Programming is forever changing so maturity in 2016 halted mastery.

It's vital to be proficient in our ecosystem and avoid being a one-trick pony.
