Jacob's Face

Hey there! My name's Jacob. I live in Ypsilanti, MI, and I'm a technology consultant and computer science student. I've been programming for about 11 years and using Ruby on Rails for about 7. I'm currently looking for work starting after I graduate in May 2020.

If you'd like to get in touch, you can email me (jacob [at] shreve.io) or tweet me (@_shreve). If you'd like, you can easily encrypt your message.

Things I'm working on

  • B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich

    In Fall 2016, I started at the University of Michigan's school of engineering. By the time I finish, I'll have taken courses in algorithms, cryptography, computer security, operating systems, networks, and more.

  • WolverineSoft Studios

    During the Winter 2020 semester, I'll be working on the programming team at WolverineSoft Studios to produce a sweet video game. As part of the process, I'll be detailing my work at the devblog on this site.

  • Open Source Software

    When I write software, I like to write it in a way that I can share it with the whole world. On my GitHub I've shared code for remote-controlling Roku TVs, a ready-to-deploy Stripe checkout server, a split encryption tool, and more.

This song goes out to anybody here that believes that maybe, just maybe, we were all born with the moral obligation to leave this world a better place than the world that we've found.
