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 unavailable for new work, but check back in mid-2020 — I should be graduated by then.
Things I'm working on
B.S.E. in Computer Science from UMich
Beginning Fall 2016, I started my junior year 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.
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.
