Hi I’m Derek, or Enchi Jiang (姜恩池) in Chinese!
I was born in China and moved to the USA in August 2012. I’m currently a freshman at Cornell University.
Computer science is my passion. To change the world is my goal. Contact me if you share either.
I value conciseness, in coding or in writing.
I am/was/will be a/an:
- Intern Software Developer at Nebula
- Intern Systems Developer at TheKeep, a NYC startup
- Intern Web Developer at Sonicpanther, a California startup
- Lead Backend Developer at Yorango, an Ithaca startup
- Associative Systems Administrator at the Legal Information Institute at Cornell
- engineer at the Cornell Mars Rover project team
- member of the Cornell ACM programming team
- member of the Cornell Computer Reuse Association
- KPCB Engineering Fellow 2013
Random things about me:
- First and foremost, I consider myself a web developer
- I believe cloud computing and artificial intelligence are the themes of this century
- Python and CoffeeScript are my favourite programming languages
- However I’m most proficient in Java
- Django is better then RoR, I think
- I prefer using IDE over text editors like vi (vim) or emacs
- However I use Sublime Text 2 in a daily basis
- Writing in Markdown is a fascination for me
