Hello!
I'm Jacob.

Proudly born and raised in Canada .

I am in my fourth year of studies at the University of Waterloo,
thriving on my research in software as a candidate for a Bachelor of Computer Science.

I have completed multiple internships in backend development
and software infrastructure at Shopify, Canada's top tech company.

I have additionally interned at Fera AI, an industry leading sales optimization artificial intelligence,
and Innovasium Digital, an award winning digital agency.

I run my own Software Consulting Company, Big Four,
and in my spare time I love developing verbose software platforms
and writing open source software on GitHub.

When I'm not coding you can catch me reading, playing hockey, or watching movies.
Although.. I'm usually coding.

My Work

Most of my current work is completed in private repositorys on GitHub.
These projects are typically Software As A Service (SaaS) projects, code modules, or applications,
but I used to dabble in other subjects such as hardware and game development.

I recommend looking at my GitHub for recent work.
However, if you are interested in my older projects then below are a few things I used to work on.

Skills

I have worked with languages and tools that cover a vast amount of the software industry.

I am a Ruby on Rails fanatic. I have a few years of development experience using Rails, and I think it is the greatest thing around. Ruby is my go-to language and my favourite.

I have experience using Rails with Redis, Memcached, Elasticsearch, Postgres, and MySQL.

For performance crucial applications, I choose to use Golang because is known to be very time and memory efficient. I am very comfortable with it and love to use it.

Furthermore, I have expertise in web development tools like PHP, HTML, React, Redux, JavaScript, Node and jQuery, as well as mobile tools like React-Native, Java and Swift.
