James hails from Howell, New Jersey. He is studying Computer Science at Rutgers University and is expecting to graduate January 2014. He is the chapter president of Alpha Kappa Lambda Fraternity. His leadership and wisdom coined him the nickname "Yoda" from Star Wars. If there's one thing he learned as an undergraduate, it would be setting goals and having an achievable means of reaching them.
He is ecstatic to be a Software Development Intern at EdLab. This is the very start of his career as a junior developer. What made him really want the position stemmed from experiencing many professors not using up-to-date technology or including alternative teaching resources to their curriculum. Innovating solutions to this problem brings passion, pride and purpose to his life.
What do you hope to achieve by the end of your internship?
I'd like to show future employers an application on the web created by EdLab and tell them that I took an active role in developing it.
What are you doing outside the workplace?
Surfing the street with a fishtail long board. Listening to punk, ska and electric dance music. Watching Game of Thrones and comedy stand up.
Want to go eat lunch/dinner?
Thai food, curry and spice. A juicy burger cooked medium; topped with mushrooms, bacon, pepper jack cheese and bbq sauce. Tacos packed dangerously with essentials and sriracha. Pita and hummus. Sushi on full moons.
Where would you like to settle?
Somewhere south or west, perhaps Florida or California. The warm weather, friendly and laid-back attitude seems to attract me all while living in the tri-state area.
