About Samuel Volin

Hello! I am Samuel Volin @untra 💎 sam@untra.io - keybase - github - twitter - linkedin - eth address

Programming is more than a skill, it is a craft.

Good software is not conceived, it is developed over time, preferably by a team of dedicated and passionate friends, and with an eye towards overarching design and flexibility. Software engineering is about studying the trade-offs and nuances of the tools at your disposal, and becoming fearless in the face of the technical unknown. Through gradual practice and research, mastery is attainable.

I am a professional Software Developer, currently residing in Boulder, Colorado. I am passionate about mathematics, functional programming, software engineering, polyglot programming, network security, cryptography, and developer operations. I have navigated fulfillment of FIPS 140-2 requirements for a project. I have broken monoliths into microservices. I have shoveled legacy code into tested & automated nightly builds and all of it again in night mode.
