Profile

Nick Lyga
Syracuse, NY.

Professional

I think of myself as a jack of all trades. I look forward to challenges and engineering solutions that solve them. I enjoy working with people, fleshing out the deliverables for a task and designing and executing the required software based solution to help them

I am a passionate, hard working developer. focused on the full stack, whether it's Python, JavaScript, or C#. From the data, design and deployment of an application to the finished user experience I have you covered.

Personal

My favorite thing in life next to coding is my kids and family. Camping, skiing, baseball, or soccer, I am always there with my kids and proud of everything they accomplish.

Next to my family I am a geek at heart. Always learning new techniques and coding languages, the bleeding edge is my favorite off hour hangout.
