Hi, I’m Tom Prior, a full stack senior software engineer based in Tipperary, Ireland. I absolutely love coding! I also love working in highly collaborative, cross-functional teams engineering solutions that provide real value for people.
I’ve worked on building, deploying and monitoring many solutions throughout my career from monoliths to microservices to big data computation systems and across the whole stack. Currently I’m working with micro-web-apps using React with Typescript and GraphQL on the front-end and and microservices on the backend using a mix of Java/Kotlin with Spring Boot and starting to use Golang microservices too. I’m also using a nice mix of ops technologies to get code to production including Kubernetes, Helm and ArgoCD
For spare-time coding fun, I’m loving Golang, Rust and Typescript at the moment!
I’ve learned over the years that programming languages and specific technologies and frameworks are just tools for the job. The real buzz and excitement for me comes from working with others who share a common positive energy towards producing something meaningful for the end user.
My Github repositories can be found here: https://github.com/priort where I have code ranging from coding challenge solutions to games and bigger projects.
