My name is Steve McIntosh, and I am a 21 year old student of Computer Science, specifically Software Engineering. I was in the Game Programming & Web Applications program at MVCTC. While in that program I learned C++, HTML, CSS, PHP, MySQL, Java, and received some experience with Cyber Security. I also competed in several competitions within the Business Professionals of America, placing 3rd regionally in C++, and the following year, placing 4th regionally in Java. I led a team to place First in the "Apps & Coding" category of the Miami Valey Teen Coding Challenge with an NFC based tracking system called Project Bloodhound that I developed with Troy Grant and Chris Phelps.
After completing the program at CTC, I began a Summer internship with a few other students from my class at CTC at the University of Dayton Research Institute. During that internship I worked mainly with Java to develop plugins for a proprietary IOT architecture. I also learned about the OSGI standards, and learned more about advanced Java techniques, including websockets and abstraction.
After the Summer internship was concluded we began working for the Research Institute part-time while going to college. While working at the Institute I have worked extensively with Linux, and the process of mirroring repositories through use of the rsync and debmirror commands. I have also received some experience with the parts of the Elastic Stack, mainly Elasticsearch and Kibana. I have also gained some experience with using Appcelerator to develop mobile apps.
