Ken

I love to design applications, write poetry, ride my bicycle, hike to hot springs, backpack through forests, take candid photographs, and talk about the intersection of technology and psychology. I also volunteer my time and energy to various projects throughout the year.

Ken Eucker

Software Engineer

As a Software Engineer with a background in object-oriented programming, I have a strong track record of building the backend of web-connected properties. I am proficient in a variety of programming languages, including TypeScript, JavaScript, PHP, C#, HTML, CSS, and MySQL, MSSQL, and MongoDB.

I specialize in developing node applications and front-ends built with node. While I am experienced in using both Vue and React, I have a particular affinity for Vue and often work with it on projects. In addition, I have expertise in GraphQL and federated databases, and am proficient in deploying serverless applications on platforms such as Netlify, Heroku, Render.com, Google Cloud Platform, and AWS.

I am committed to staying up to date with the latest technologies and best practices in my field, and always strive to produce high-quality, reliable code.

Black Rock Ranger

Throughout my career, I have dedicated a significant amount of time to volunteering for various organizations, communities, and online groups. In 2016, I joined the team of Rangers at SOAK, Portland's regional Burning Man event. As a Ranger, I provided peer support and emergency response to participants. In 2019, I attended Burning Man for the third time and became a Black Rock Ranger. Since then, I have returned to Burning Man annually to serve as a Black Rock Ranger, a role I am committed to continuing in the future.

I am a software engineer with a passion for programming that began when I was 14 years old. Throughout my education and career, I have learned a range of programming languages, including BASIC, Pascal, C, C++, PHP, and ASP.NET, and have applied my skills to projects in web development, microcontroller programming, and game development. I have a diverse background in the tech industry, having worked at web development agencies, product companies, and as a freelancer.
