Scott Enriquez (@exoentropy)

I'm a developer, IT analyst, writer, and linguist. I solve problems, teach my ideas to computers, and try to capture all of my experiences along the way. This is my life.

I HAVE A BREADTH OF EXPERIENCE.

I currently work at ConocoPhillips as a developer. Through work experience, coursework, and tinkering, I have experience with:

  • Java, C, C++, C#, Python, Perl, LISP, Ruby, ABAP
  • JavaScript, HTML, CSS
  • jQuery, Kendo UI, Ajax, Twitter Bootstrap
  • NET 4.5, MVC 5, Web API 2, Entity Framework 5, Django
  • Visual Studio, Eclipse
  • Team Foundation Server and Git
  • SQL Server Management Studio, ER/Studio Data Architect
  • OpenMPI, OpenMP
  • Rally for Agile software development

I have over two years experience of working in IT at Fortune 50 companies. During this time, I've been exposed to everything from networking to data integration. Over the course of my career I've developed soft skills such as:

  • Business analysis
  • Project management
  • Technical communication

I hold bachelor's degrees in computer science and Asian studies from the University of Texas at Austin. Some of my memorable coursework includes:

  • High-Performance Computing
  • Operating Systems
  • Software Engineering
  • Automata Theory
  • Advanced Japanese Conversation I & II
  • Advanced Japanese Reading I & II

I am @exoentropy on GitHub.

I display and maintain old university projects, my personal passion projects, and repositories for learning new languages, tools, and frameworks, including:

AND I SEE THE WORLD IN CODE.


                def get(url):
                    #Execute GET for target URL and pass back response to caller
                    request = urllib2.Request(url)
                    return util.performRequest(request)

                def put(url, data):
                    #Execute PUT for target URL and pass back response to caller
                    headers = {"Content-Type": "application/json"}
                    request = urllib2.Request(url, data=data, headers=headers)
                    request.get_method = lambda: 'PUT'
                    return util.performRequest(request)

                def post(url, data):
                    #Execute POST for target URL and pass back response to caller
                    headers = {"Content-Type": "application/json"}
                    request = urllib2.Request(url, data=data, headers=headers)
                    return util.performRequest(request)

                def delete(url):
                    #Execute DELETE for target URL and pass back response to caller
                    request = urllib2.Request(url)
                    request.get_method = lambda: 'DELETE'
                    return util.performRequest(request)

                

TECHNOLOGY IS MY MISSION.

Technology is the cornerstone of my daily existence. As a graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, I spent my career as a student immersed in a culture of bleeding edge research. As a developer for the exploration and production company ConocoPhillips, I contribute to a culture of technological innovation and knowledge sharing.

BUT I ALSO LIVE FOR THE HUMANITIES.

I began my college career studying English, but I quickly changed my major to computer science. It was truly an honor to study with some of the most brilliant minds in the field and be part of such a prestigious program. After falling in love with the Japanese language despite its intense difficulty, I added Asian studies as a second major.

I DON'T HAVE HOBBIES. I HAVE PASSIONS.

 I tinker with code and share with the world. I've been a programmer since I was fourteen. I'm still constantly exploring new APIs, tools, and technologies.
 I write about the unique experiences I've had. My life has taken me to some amazing places and led me to some extraordinary people.
 I study Japanese and try to teach others. I'm still a far cry from fluency, but I still strive to share my journey with those as passionate as I am.

NOW THAT YOU'VE MET ME, LET'S CONNECT.

      

I also frequent Xbox Live, Steam, and other corners of the internet as @exoentropy. I'm always open to collaboration in my free time, so feel free to contact me about any projects or freelance work.
