My name is Jake Derouin. I am currently in my senior year of high school at Eden Prairie High School in Minnesota. I am crazy passionate about everything technology, distance running, and swimming. I will be attending the University of Colorado Boulder to study Computer Science and will run cross country and track with the Buffalos for the fall of 2020.
What I do?
Outside of school, sports, and most importantly hanging out with my friends, I love tinkering around with technology in every way possible. I am constantly thinking of problems to solve through developing software no matter how big or small the problem is. I have successfully taught myself Apple's Swift language and have developed a few apps that are in the IOS App Store. While I still have much to learn in the world of programming and computer science, I have gotten to the point where I can take a problem, and solve it through the use of developing a mobile app. Check out the Resources page to see what I have made.
What skills do I have?
- Intermediate Swift developer. I can work with IOS, watchOS, and tvOS
- Lots of knowledge about various computer science topics
- Knowledge about some of the science behind distance running
- Leadership skills: I have had a captainship in my 3 sports: Track, Cross Country, and Swimming
- Can cook eggs
