Hey, my name is Jack. I am a third year Computing Undergraduate at Imperial College London. Before studying at Imperial, I studied at The Billericay School and Westcliff High School for Boys Sixth Form.
I first realised I wanted to study computing when my A Level maths teacher started discussing computer-assisted proofs, and why some people didn’t accept their validity. I was extremely intrigued, and so decided to complete my Extended Project on it. Since then, I have realised that computer science is a much wider area than just writing programs, and that is why I want to learn more about it.
In my free time, I enjoy listening to a wide variety of music, especially pop. When I’m not working, I enjoy spending time with my friends all over the country. I also love to travel - see my travel progress here.
About The Site
All of the content on this site is generated using the static website generator Jekyll.
The original version of this site was created when I was 16 as part of a school project. I wrote it in basic HTML and CSS, and therefore it has become unsustainable as more pages have been added, as there is a lot of duplication. That’s why I decided to migrate it to something more sustainable.
Initially, I wanted to do something dynamic. However, since I host the site using Github Pages, dynamic sites are not supported. I considered switching hosting provider, but after some internet research, I discovered a static solution: Jekyll. I thought this would be a fun challenge.
My initial project is to export my current site, reducing all of the code duplication, which I am currently doing. Once this is complete, it will be much easier to update with more content.
The github repo for this site can be found here.
