I’m Sammy Tran.
I am a software engineer, writer, and foodie.
Originally from Philadelphia, I graduated with a bachelor’s degree in computer science from Drexel University at the end of 2022.
Currently based out of Seattle, I will be joining Amazon as a software development engineer later this year. In the meantime, I am writing a book on full-stack web development with Spring Boot and Next.js.
In my free time, I enjoy exploring the Pacific Northwest, eating out at local restaurants, and writing about topics I am interested in.
