About

My name is Kevin Hughes and I’m a software engineer and all round tech enthusiast. I currently work for Shopify as a fullstack developer. 

I absolutely love what I do; in addition to my day job I spend a lot of my free time working on side projects and learning new things. I am a big believer in open source and the power of software to change the world. I share my own work with the greater community whenever possible and try to focus my efforts on software that matters.

Before joining Shopify I was doing my masters at Queen’s University in the RCV (Robotics and Computer Vision) Lab under the supervision of Dr. Michael Greenspan. Prior to grad school I studied mechanical engineering where I got interested in robotics and contol systems. It was through robotics I found my true calling and made the pivot to become a software engineer.

After computer science my other passion is Ultimate Frisbee and if I’m not coding I am probably training or playing the greatest sport ever!
