Are you looking for a developer?

Hello DC area software developers and technology enthusiasts ,

I am a recent college graduate that is looking to move to the DC area and get a full time job in software/web development. I graduated with my degree in Statistics from the University of South Florida. I have also had a few internships and jobs as a programmer beginning the summer before I started college. I've been an intern at Rosetta Inpharmatics which is a biosoftware company that was acquired by Microsoft; at the time I was interning on the biology side not software though.

I had another internship as a programmer at Raymond James Financial. Raymond James is an international financial services company that is headquartered in Tampa Bay. After that, I started a programming/web design club at my school. I wanted to learn a bit (no pun intended) about some of the front end techniques that I had been reading about. I thought it would be more enjoyable to do this with other students at my school, so I reached out to the listserv of a different computer group that I was a part of and found a co-founder. You can also read more about my club here. I have also had a part-time job as a php/web developer at the CPI Group and worked in the QA department of The CPI Group operates a pair of e-commerce sites that specializes in cooking utensils and cigar extras. You can read more about them by visiting their site. is an internet start up that has been rated as the number one affiliate network by Website magazine.

If you are interested in looking at code samples, here is a link to my GitHub account. Most of the code on there is written in C/C++, C# and R. I am also currently making my way through the book Agile Web Development with Rails and I am keeping track of that code on my GitHub account as well. I am far from the Rockstar/Ninja/Guru with 10 years of experience that some of you have probably tried to find on Stakoverflow. However, if anybody knows of a place where a recently graduate and fast learner with a little experience can fit in, I would love to talk to you. I can provide letters of recommendation, I have references and of course I have my GitHub account. I hope you all have a nice weekend.
