John Maguire
Full Stack Developer
Summary

It was during college when I discovered my passion for mathematics, and analytic problem solving in general. From there it was a long, diverse road that brought me to my current position. Through all of these experiences I have learned many different things about myself, and found a love for coding. The ability to solve a problem in a multitude of different ways, with each solution having different merits really speaks to me, and I am really looking forward to turning this newfound passion into a lifelong career.

Activities
TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon 2016

Competed in the TechCrunch Disrupt Hackathon. With a team of 5, we built a rails app that connects students to after school activities, and allows them to suggest new activities that they are interested in. If a teacher approves and an idea get's enough votes from other students, the activity opens up to parents to  crowdfund the new activity to make it a reality. View the app here: link.
