I'm Azin Taqizadeh, a 4th-year computer engineering student @uWaterloo. During my undergrad, I have had the opportunity to experience working in various positions, namely, software developer, IoT developer, and QA in amazing tech companies such as PlayStation, BlackBerry, and SAP, respectively. Having these work experiences, I am even more interested in programming and embedded designs today. I am eager to use my experience and apply my skills and enthusiasm toward my future work terms and full-time opportunities.

Sometimes I code for fun, I find making something cool either on my own or at hackathons to be a great way of learning different languages and tools. Making this website was no exception; I used this opportunity to get better at web development and to create a place to share what projects I have been working on. I'd be happy to connect with you, so don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or if you want to know more about me 🙂
