G'day, I am

Eric Jiang.

I'm a Software Engineer.

I make impact to everyone by delivering awesome software solutions and I love building the communities around me.

I am...

currently in my final year (studying part-time) in my Bachelor of Information Technology at Monash University, and majoring in Computer networks and security.

You can find more about me and why I chose an IT degree at Monash here

Not only do I love writing awesome software and cybersecurity, I also love incoporating other sides of the tech field such as DevOps, Product Management, Software Engineering and Web/Cloud Technologies into my development practices.

Something that I'm currently proud of is winning the Rising Star Category of the 2019 itNews Benchmark Awards for founding and delivering MonPlan (while I'm still a student)

I also love impacting to everyone in the community, that is why I love mentoring other fellow developers, friends and family, and why I also love participating in many community events such as hackathons, conferences and meetups.
