A gist of who I am

Hi! I'm Larry Boateng Asante - currently working at Amazon, Inc. as a Software Development Engineer with the Audible team! I graduated Grinnell College in May 2017 with a degree in Computer Science & Statistics.

A little bit about my work experience: In the summer of 2015, I worked at IBM as a Software Engineering Intern under the Analytics Emerging Technology division where my team worked on an Android application to ease traffic congestion! I did another internship with IBM in the Spring of 2016 as a Software Engineering Intern -- I worked building the initial version of IBM's Big Data University mobile application on Android. In Summer 2016, I joined Facebook, Inc. where I worked on the Newsfeed/Interfaces team on Android. There, I worked on UI rendering optimization of the Newsfeed as well as integrating speech recognition as a means of commenting. During my time in Grinnell College, I led Android Engineering and Education efforts at Grinnell AppDev and I have also worked in the capacity as a Technical Product Manager for our Grinnell S&B and KDIC applications.

I am passionate about mobile engineering and building delightful user experiences on mobile. When I'm not working on Android products, I'm usually dabbling in the vast Machine Learning world.

Feel free to contact me on Facebook, via email and/or follow my blog to stay updated on my experiences thus far! I'll be down to collaborate on any interesting Software Engineering projects!
