Hello and welcome! Thank you for taking the time to visit my tiny corner of the web! My name is Gabi Jack, and I'm a Software Engineer in the greater Toledo, OH area. My daily job involves writing Ruby on Rails and React applications, but I also enjoy dabbling in other programming languages, such as C++ and Python, as well as experimenting with other frameworks and technologies.
In a previous life, before becoming a software developer, I graduated college with a BS in Mechanical Engineering, and worked for a few years doing design and optimization of thermal energy systems. Perhaps, this explains why I still keep a certain fondness for Math, Physics and all things related to computer aided mechanical design.
When I'm not working, I enjoy reading, knitting, growing roses, and spending time with my husband, our two boys and our little mini schnauzer. My hope is to make this a place to blog about all things that I'm learning and exploring, with an emphasis on software development. Hopefully, I may also manage to write something interesting from time to time.
