A Day in the Life of an Engineer with Alumni Kai Lovingfoss

April 20, 2021
9:00 am
Come hear from Lambda Alumni Kai Lovingfoss. He is a Lambda Alum and currently a Software Engineer at American ExpressI'm Kai, a former Japanese and Math high school teacher from Hawaii, and overall lover of all things technical. I've been messing around with code since I was 13, when I first discovered modding and basic Python scripting (mostly Minecraft and Mount and Blade mods, and I helped out with Skyrim porting for a few friends). My skills at frontend have taken a hit since I typically work on SRE related work at my job at Amex, but my first job was at a crypto startup as a React engineer. I spent most of my time working on Node backend work, though, which taught me that your job title and your actual work might not always match up. At American Express, I work on rolling out databases for our global payments system, build out observability platforms and use Bash, Go, Python, and Javascript to automate different DevOps tasks around the organization. I am also working on building some dashboards in React for my team, as they do not have any engineers, other than myself, that have much experience with web technologies. Ask me anything about SRE/DevOps, fullstack work, or backend work.
