Jacob Filer Featured Student


I’ve worn a bunch of hats over the years.  I toured in a band for a couple years, worked in audio engineering, but I’ve always had a really strong passion for technology. When I was in high school, I started programming Raspberry Pi’s to play old SNES and N64 games on, and I was hooked!


Q: Why did you decide to come to Centriq?
A: When everything started to get shut down, it seemed like the best/worst case scenario where I had a bunch of time to try and learn some new skills. I had heard of Centriq a bunch of times, and decided to make the jump.

Q: What class has been your favorite so far?
A: It has been the toughest but probably Advanced MVC as well as the C# courses.  It has been interesting to see the real-world implementation of all the languages we have been learning, and how they tie together in production environment.

Q: What do you hope to do after Centriq?
A: I am looking forward to being a part of a company where I can contribute my skills, and also try and soak up information as possible.

Q: What other hobbies and interests do you have?
A: I love music and I am a huge coffee nerd, as well as a regular nerd. A fun fact about me is that I can snap with four fingers!
