Jack of all Trades
Jack began teaching himself to program in elementary school when he discovered that was how to make computer games. He deployed his first Rails application before Rails 1.0 was released and has been active in Rails application development ever since. Jack is excited to be working with Go, Ruby, PostgreSQL, and git. In his spare time, Jack occasionally still dabbles in game development.
