I am a developer who loves computer science, mathematics and basketball !

I believe an education in technology is important, especially in todays day and age where computers are everywhere, from our homes to our offices, to our phones. Understanding how computers work can be very beneficial in the work place and having an education in the fields of IT, Computer Engineering, or Computer Science can open doors for anyone !
