THE POWER OF JAKERS
Yooo what's good! I'm Jacob Applebaum and this is my site!
Technically I've been "coding" since middle school, but it was really just HTML and Scratch (even though I'd consider the ladder more of a programming language). At that time I was more into making and editing videos.
In High School, I got into Python, Arduino-C, C#, Java, and JS on my own time. Then when I actually started taking Computer Science as a class I dove deeper into Java and Python, making games with a group of friends (artist, musician, and other programmer) over the summers, and I even made my own website.
I also got more into hardware in high school. Arduinos, Raspberry Pis, basic circuits, robotics, etc. in Computer Engineering class. But outside of class, I stumbled upon Ben Eater's videos, which finally made the connection between hardware and software 'click' in my head. And ever since, I've been really interested in the intersection between software and hardware.
Now, I spend my days at Brock University, studying Computer Science. I'm learning more than ever before about software (in class) and hardware (mostly outside of class, if I have time). I'm in 3rd year, so this year I'm living in house with some friends (first year off residence), which means I'll finally get to set up the electronics lab of my dreams...
