About Me

Hi there, I'm Jamsheed! 👋

I'm currently an engineer at Udacity while I take a gap semester away from UC Berkeley. I'll be back there in the fall to continue pursuing my Computer Science degree.

In my spare time, I love spreading my passion for programming with others. At Hack+, I'm leading a team to develop a financial management backend for student startups, nonprofits, events, and clubs.

I'm also a hackathon enthusiast: I'm currently working on Pinnacle, the Olympics of Hackathons. In the past, I've led Los Altos Hacks and CodeDay Bay Area, inspiring high school students to pursue careers in STEM.

In the past, I've worked at Apple, Stanford, and Gauss Surgical, doing engineering, project management, and research.

I've been practicing Taekwondo for over a decade. As a 4th degree black belt, I train at UCMAP, teach classes at Tiger Martial Arts, and referee around the country as a certified national referee.

This website gives a general overview about me and what I've accomplished in the past. You can find out more about my specific positions and accomplishments on my LinkedIn or on my resume.

Projects

I love creating things that are useful or have an impact on people. Here are a handful of projects that I've worked on:

3NAME perpetually scans for available three-letter Minecraft usernames (considered "rare") using a complex algorithm that I designed. Over the last 5 years, I've grown the website to serve over 500,000 monthly requests, and it even has a fanbase of over 5,000 gamers on Discord.
Chrome Theme Studio is a tool that allows users to create their own custom browser theme for most Chromium-based browsers. It was featured as #3 Product of the Day on Product Hunt (link), and it's my most starred project on GitHub (link).
Reflect is web-based software for a "magic mirror" that I built from scratch. This software responds to voice commands, plays music, and displays the current news headlines, time, date, weather, and Bitcoin prices. Its YouTube demo has thousands of views and can be found here.
TigerScore is an online testing form system for martial arts academies. It handles payments, application submissions, parent notification, and much more. It has been in use by my martial arts academy, Tiger Martial Arts, since it was built around 5 years ago.
FakeMail is one of the only reputable and free spoof email tools. Mostly built as a proof-of-concept, FakeMail takes advantage of the poor infrastructure that email was built on to allow users to send emails from any email address in a legal way.
