Sean Thomas Burke

Software Developer. Proud Anteater.

I'm Sean Burke and I am currently the Director of Engineering at GoLinks. I graduated with my Masters in Computer Science from UC San Diego and I did my undergraduate at UC Irvine where I double majored in Electrical Engineering and Business Information Management.

When it comes to coding, I am most fluent in Java, PHP, MySQL, JavaScript, HTML, and CSS. I also know many other languages such as C/C++, Java for Android and Objective-C for iOS development, but I am more comfortable with the previous mentioned languages.

I'm happy at GoLinks and currently not looking for a job.
