Welcome to my blog! As you may have already figured out by the URL and the title, my name is Gabriela Jack (Gabi for short). I am a Junior Software Engineer who loves to code and is always in search of ways to learn, develop new skills or sharpen existing ones.
Although I majored in Mechanical Engineering, I had always felt intrigued by programming languages, software and web development in general, so a few years ago I decided to go back to school, take a few classes and see where that would take me. After completing a certification track for Java Development at a local college, I continued learning about all different technologies through books, videos, online classes, forums, etc.
Fast forward to today, I’ve accumulated some experience in the field, first working as a QA Engineer and later joining the team of robot developers at Manilla.com, where I was first exposed to RoR. These days, I am a Junior Rails Engineer and loving it!
Since I enjoy writing as much as I enjoy coding, I decided to make this blog into a place where I can share some of my experiences with the rest of the world. I hope you will find some of my writings useful or at least interesting. If you feel like it, please leave a comment and come back to visit some other time.
