Hello! My name is Patrick Ruble, I am currently enrolled at University of Maryland University College
(UMUC) obtaining my Bachelors degree in Digital Media & Web Technology.
After obtaining this degree I will be beginning my Masters degree in Software Engineering.
I have had a passion for website development since I was a teenager and first got a taste of website development with Yahoo! GeoCities and AngelFire which paved the way for websites such as WIX.
Better known by my middle name "Eddie". I have a true passion for development; Ever since I was in middle school and was first given a TI-82 with some games pre-programmed into it for me. I then swapped the TI-82 into edit mode and learned how it was that this game functioned by using reverse engineering.
Later on that same year I met a friend; Jeremy Quarry's uncle who made a living off of launching affiliate websites using such services as AngelFire or Yahoo GeoCities. He went over it briefly with us and I simply fell in love!
From that day on, somewhere in the summer of 1999 I began my journey into the world of website development. I then began launching free sites for friends that were musicians as well as making sites to showcase my personal interests.
Over the years of being a self-taught website developer and the years I now have of going to college, I have gained experience in many areas which are going to be used in the field of web technology.
My goal is to find a career in website development after completing my Bachelors Degree.
