Career Profile

Welcome. My name is Noah. I am a young and passionate programmer. My day always seems to revolve around technology until one moment when I was introduced into Robotics, then the world was flipped upside down. I made the robots and computer systems revolve around me. Even to this day I still engage with my roots that set me on this amazing path of robots and programming inspired by FIRST. A lot of what I know now has sprouted from the first day I joined a robotics team. Ever since then I have made discoveries into other languages for computer programming and learned everything my self by reading documentation from sources like PHP Docs, Go Docs, RFC, Java Docs, W3School, YouTube (Assorted Users and Seminars), and other peers and people that I have communicated with online via Discord.

In my spare time I take my time looking at new Ideas as well as coming up with new ways to use technology while not breaking what the main use case it was designed for. I also mess with Open Source software and operating systems such as FreeNAS, PFSense and Citrix XenServer.
