A Little About Me

Greg Ives at HackSheffield

    Hi there, I’m Greg Ives! I’m in my final year at the University of Sheffield, studying a masters in Computer Science. I love making things which work well, look good and are easy-to-use for everyone.

    I have a lot of experience building performant and accessible websites. Recently, I have been taking a look at JAMstack — this website is statically generated using Nuxt. I am an avid hackathoner, attending hackathons across Europe and organising HackSheffield for the past three years. I am a strong believer that you can learn just as much in your spare time as in education, most of my knowledge has come from hackathons and my side projects.

    Last summer I worked as an intern at FinancialForce, working on the #1 Professional Services Automation app on the Salesforce platform. I volunteer as Lead Instructor for Code First: Girls, teaching young women and non-binary people to build their first website. I am also a teaching assistant at the University of Sheffield, having taught the first-year Devices & Networks, Java Programming and An Introduction to Software Engineering modules in Computer Science labs.

    I’m very excited to be joining Capital One next year as a Software Development Engineer!
