Nick Dragan has obtained his B.S. degree from Kent State University in Computer Science in 2007, and his M.S. degree from University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill in 2012. In 2007, he interned at Yoosic, a small startup in Dresden, Germany, where he built automated tools to import and organize music metadata. While working on his Masters at UNC, he has held positions as a teaching assistant for undergraduate Computer Science courses, and as a research assistant working in the Wide Area Visuals Lab. While at Explorys, he has shipped numerous features within Explorys’ product portfolio, organized QA efforts and product releases, and assisted in R&D efforts that led to the adoption of the Cucumber test infrastructure and the transition to Ruby On Rails as the framework of choice for new product development. In addition to his passion for building web applications, some of his interests include 3D graphics, data mining, soccer, and traveling.
