Hi, I am

Jackie Zhang

I am a Software Engineer.

about me

Hello world and welcome to my website!

I am currently a Senior at University of Michigan studying Computer Science & Data Science. I love to find and solve problems using technology.

My academic interest lies in Distributed/Networked/Data-Intensive systems, my most recent research project is a novel data-driven controller design for developing generic applications in Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Industrial Networking (E.g. manufacturing testbed) environments easily and elegantly.

I am a big fan of entrepreneurship. I founded ReactiveXYZ, a creative app and web development studio when I was in high school. I was also a former co-founder and CTO of Backyard Parking (acquired and is now Parqyt). At the moment, I am preparing for my next venture!

I also love to share and learn through open-sourcing. I was an early contributor to the Laravel framework. I have constantly released source codes of tools and past projects that I wrote on my Github. Most recently, I am working on open-sourcing and maintaining Recore, a novel frontend development framework I was heavily involved in during my internship at Alibaba.

Besides a technologist, I am a certified barista and hunter, a semi-Aussie, a traveller and a ukulele rookie.
