Hello!


I started programming in High School, and have had a passion for it ever since. The first language I ever used was Java and it will always have a soft spot in my heart, however since then I have learned and grown to love many other languages such as C, C++, Python, and JavaScript. The best thing to me about being a Software Developer is the constant need to learn and hone your skills with how quickly new technologies and best practices are released. Currently I am still a student at Angelo State University, however I will be graduating in less than a month.
This leaves me available for employment if anyone believes I may be a good fit!

Some qualities about myself that I think are important:
I write readable code: if no one can read the code and edit it that does nothing but hurt everyone in the long run.
Documentation is just as important as code: if you write an awesome program and no one knows how to use it, then its not a useful one.
Always improve and learn: this field moves so quickly compared to others, if you are not constantly learning you'll end up getting left behind.

End of Life


Team Juice Compiler:

This is the compiler that was was written by my group (Team Juice) in my senior level Compilers class. This was a collaborative effort by Zachary N. and myself, it takes Pascallite code and generates RAMM Assembly code as the result. This was written in three stages over the course of 3 months, however only our final code result is available in the repository (along with some easter eggs in the code). I plan on rewriting this in other languages as I learn them.
Used: C++, Git, Pascallite, RAMM

/tg/ Station 13: Asteroid Station:

Asteroid Station was a collaborative effort between myself and Jordie0608. It was an ambitious project, a large space station set inside of an Asteroid, and it was fairly popular during its lifetime. Sadly however was never completely finished and now with the codebase moving on without it, it sadly is no longer maintained.
