I'm an international student, business owner and software engineer born in Budapest, Hungary, and based in Norfolk, Virginia. Having spent my youth tinkering with computer hardware, I found a fascination with technology early on, with the opportunity to put my passion into practice at 14 during my time in the specialized Computer Science program at BMSZC - Újpesti Két Tanítási Nyelvű Műszaki Technikum. After moving to the United States, I got the opportunity to continue my education in technology by gaining admission to the Advanced Technology Center in Virginia Beach, VA, a STEM centered magnet program for future programmers; THIS thus began my professional journey into computer science (with an emphasis on web development) that I continue on to this day. Between 2015 and 2016, I was part of a team based website design and e-commerce state level competition organized by the Virginia charter for the Future Business Leaders of America where we took home 3rd and 4th places respectively.
Subsequently, I became part of a 4 student development team on internship basis at, TechArk a local web development company. During my time at the agency, I was introduced to the world of WordPress development and the Quality Assurance of web applications. I was presented with a scholarship fund from the company, to lift the burden of higher education costs. I continued my education at Old Dominion University, pursuing a Bachelor's of Business Administration degree in Information Systems & Technology with a double minor in Web Development and Cyber Security. During my time at ODU, I've been fortunate to gain valuable experience in the field by working as a UI Developer at the ODU Online, the department responsible for the online education of the student population. After an early exit from the position, I started my work for the Engineering Management & Systems Engineering department working on a project that will turn out to become my Master's project in the near future.
Both then, as an undergraduate student worker, and years later as a current graduate assistant, I have had the privilege of working on the Asynchronous Learning Management Platform, leading the development effort. The application is a learning management system that completely re-imagines how today's online education is conducted; By allowing instructors to completely modularize their courses, students are able to save time by cutting down on repetitive content being taught to them by multiple different instructors. In addition to the web based platform, we developed an advance machine learning model that allows students to see their individualized success scores, predicting their performance in the given module based on a multitude of parameters. As of February 2023, the platform is currently in the final stages of development and is expected to be released in the summer of 2023.
