About Me

Picture of Mariam Farrukh

Hello! My name is Mariam. I am a Physics Teacher turned Full Stack Engineer who is passionate about learning new technologies and working on meaningful projects. I have gained experience with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, React.js, Node.js, Express.js, and more while studying Full Stack Web Development at Lambda School.

I joined a company as a Full Stack Engineer and within the first week I learned Next.js and TypeScript to create a user-friendly internal tool. Eventually, I worked in the backend Node.js and GraphQL microservices to implement a paginated activity page. For a year, I worked and collaborated with engineers, UX designers, and product managers to deliver important features.

Outside of web development, I enjoy playing video games and watching a good show.

Experience working remotely and across time zones. Educated at Marquette University (B.S. in Education and Physics), Lambda School (Web Development).
