Hello World,

I'm Jason D'Amour.



Let me introduce myself.

Profile Picture

Coding, climbing, diving, surfing, racing, gaming, snowboarding, spelunking, and exploring the world.

At Home

Born and raised in the Bay Area, I've been calling San Francisco home since 2020. When the weather is warm I enjoy surfing in Santa Cruz, diving in Monterey, and hiking in Yosemite. When the weather is cold I love snowboarding, whether in Tahoe or around the world. I love day trips in my car, long road trips in converted camper vans, and going nowhere at all. When I'm not out and about, I enjoy playing PC games like Rocket League, Baldurs Gate 3, or Apex Legends.

  • Name:Jason D'Amour
  • Born:August, 1998
  • Job:Software Engineer

At Work

As a Computer Science major at Colorado State University, I became involved with an engineering research team. I helped run and maintain the on-prem Kubernetes cluster of ~100 nodes; from hardware upgrades to bootstraping clusters with kubeadm. After pinching my thumb on a server rack, I decided to retire from the ground work and become a cloud engineer. Happily FUNemployed.
