Hi! My name is Jesse. I love to empower developers, unite tech communities, and solve challenging engineering problems. I'm currently helping to organize Hack Upstate, whose mission is to unite and facilitate collaboration among the greater Upstate New York technology community. I’m also working full time at AXA US as a Software Engineer doing full-stack development with React.js & Spring Boot, and dabbling in chatbots. I'm the co-founder and former director of Hack Potsdam, a hackathon that brought in over 100 people to the North Country area. I was also the former President of the SUNY Potsdam ACM (Association for Computing Machinery).
I 💖 to learn. I take self paced courses on Udacity, Coursera, Udemy, and Codeacademy to name a few.
I like to stay sharp with Codewars, HackerRank, and FreeCodeCamp.
You can check out this Trello board and this Github repo where you can see what I've been learning recently.
Certificates are kind of cheesy, but here's a few.
Creating a Google Action using Dialogflow & Firebase stack to make your kitchen smarter. Received an honorable mention from over 4,500 participants from 124 countries.
Created python app to send an email to the user if there is a change in the market value of a card using the TCGPlayer API.Github
Worked on several projects at four events. Won a Google Home in Spring 2017.
Hack Upstate seeks to unite and facilitate collaboration among the greater Upstate NY hacker community. In doing so, we aim to contribute to the growth of Upstate NY’s technology sector, and to create a robust network of technologists and regional technology companies.
Hack Potsdam is a 24-hour student-run hackathon where over a large number people meet to engage in collaborative computer programming by working one project with a team for the duration of the event.
I was the president of the SUNY Potsdam ACM Chapter, a club connects students with a passion for technology. I helped to facilitate and organize meetings, events, guest speakers, and projects. These efforts have created several opportunities for students, expanded the presence of the club, and strengthened the Computer Science department.
