Wayne Jackson II

Developer

My name is Wayne Jackson II and I am a recent graduate from University of South Florida (class of 2014) where I earned my Bachelor’s of Science in Information Technology. I am FileMaker Certified in version 12 through the current version.

While in college, I started my own computer repair business, Wayne Jackson’s Computer Services, where I offer repair, optimization and virus removal for MAC and PC platforms. I’m familiar with various languages and programs such as FileMaker Pro, MySQL, HTML5, CSS, PHP, all Microsoft applications, C, C#, Java, JavaScript, Python and C++. I have experience in various areas, relevant to Extensitech’s work, such as program design, user interfaces, computer networking, data structures, data algorithms, technical writing, database systems, software engineering and operating systems.

I’m familiar with a variety of industries, not only from working during college, but also assisting with family owned businesses. These years of experience have given me real world critical skills helpful in database design and my problem solving capabilities. I have background experience in property management, food service, education, building materials, electronics, and sales. My work history includes selling refurbished equipment online, via eBay, for a recycling management company, tutoring children at Kumon, working as a deli clerk at Publix, offering window replacements door-to-door, and cold-calling as a survey representative for a marketing company.

My fresh education, combined with my life experiences, and creative thinking give me powerful tools needed to provide positive and critical input at Extensitech. My level of comfort in designing interfaces, databases and calculations makes me feel “at home” here at Extensitech. I’m learning new and valuable skills daily and continually growing rapidly as a developer.
