Software Engineer

Hello everyone my name is Jonathan Jennings and I am a software engineer who's worked in the Digital Entertainment ( specifically Videogames, Virtual Reality, and Augmented Reality) for over the past 8 years . I love Videogames and all the new exciting emerging tech out there ,it's fun to see and take part in the future developing before us in terms of entertainment .

I've worked on over 13 publicly available apps and several canceled projects as well, projects I've worked on have amassed over 2million collective downloads, Some of the companies I've worked with include Dreamworks and Sony among many other smaller studios .

I've also more recently been looking into public speaking situations since being a Black Software engineer in the entertainment is such a uncommon position to hold and love to share my insights and experiences with the future of diverse developers who hopefully follow behind me.

I look forward to meeting and networking with all the other tech minds working across the country and welcome the opportunity to meet and talk with any and everyone I can to expand my network.
