Eric Fahey

An Aspiring Full Stack Developer

A few fun facts about me

I'm 20 years old. I was born and bred in the beautiful city of Toronto. I love to code and play video games. I love music, especially Electronic Dance Music, but I love all music that makes me want to dance. I love coffee. My favorite number is 7. I love going to the gym and going out with my friends. My current interests include innovationary technology, travelling and healthy living. In the warmer months I enjoy fishing, swimming and relaxing in the sun. I like learning new programming languages and challenging myself with side projects.

What's my story?

My fascination towards understanding "how something works" and my love for video games led me towards development. I started programming at the age of 12. By the time I was 14, I had replicated games like Pac Man and a racing games which interfaced using a classical joy stick. I had successfully launched my own website and forum which revolved around a popular game at the time. Within a year my website was averaging about 1.3 Million page views each and every month. At this point I knew I wanted to pursue Computer Science and become a full stack developer. The idea of creating a visually appealing, functional and easy to use front-end user interface while delivering endless back-end functionality had me sold as the dream job.

What am I currently doing?

I am currently on a co-op placement at CIBC as an intermediate Application Developer. In addition, I am enrolled at Ryerson University, working towards my Bachelor of Science in Computer Science.

When am I available?

September 2017 - December 2017 (4 months)
May 2018 - August 2018 (4 months)
May 2019 onwards
