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.
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.
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.
