Contestant highlight 2019: Jack Cutting
“This will be my first time competing in anything, let alone Code in the Dark. I am absolutely terrified of what lies ahead, but incredibly excited to see what other people can do!”
I am a 25 year old System Engineer based in Suffolk. I started teaching myself to code when I was around 15, creating websites and applications for friends and small businesses. I studied IT and Computing at A Level, and moved straight into the field in-leu of going to Uni. I started off my career as more of a full-stack developer, picking up languages along the way, and then started to drift more towards backend development and systems administration - where I currently reside.
I have a wonderful little Boston Terrier called Sven who loves to cuddle when I code at home!
Away from the screen, I love to sing and dance (sometimes on a stage), and party with my friends. My more tame activities normally involve taking day trips somewhere to take Sven on long walks.
