About Justin Rentie


My name is Justin Rentie. I was born in Palisade, Colorado where I lived for the first 17 years of my life. After high school I decided to pursue Computer Science at Colorado State University in Fort Collins, Colorado.

I graduated from C.S.U. in the spring 2018 semester with a degree in Computer Science with a concentration in Human Centered Computing.

I am currently employed as a full time software developer at Open Water Foundation where I am primarily focused on java development for data processing tools as well as web development which includes creating online visualizations for collected water data.


Example visualizations/sites:

I spent the past year focused primarily on web development. I developed skills in HTML/CSS as well as JavaScript and have learned a lot while working with the JavaScript library D3.js.

I’m currently focused on cultivating my skills as a back-end software developer using Java as well as Python. I have particular interest in the fields of algorithm’s work, artificial intelligence, and blockchain/cryptocurrency. Currently I am focusing on better understanding blockchain and how it applies to crypto as well as other applications such as digital contracts.

It is my hope to soon make a move to Denver, Colorado where I can find solid work as a software developer and to develop further my skills as a programmer. With any luck I can get involved with algorithms, A.I., or crypto.

About This Blog

The purpose of this blog is to document the things I’ve learned either through work or through my own personal projects. I am using this blog as an opportunity to help myself get better at documenting code and communicating complicated concepts to others. By documenting information I am also ensuring that I have a better understanding. This blog will mostly focus on Java/Python, though I may write the occasional post on topics learned from my time working as a web developer intern, HTML/CSS and JavaScript primarily. I’ve also been working to better understand Blockchain/Bitcoin/Ethereum, and plan on documenting any information learned in these areas.

By no means am I claiming to be an expert in any of these topics.

Most of the information I gather and document will most likely be easily found in other parts of the internet. As I mention above the main focus of this blog is to help myself get better at coding and documenting, and also act as a source of reference to return to in future. Regardless, I hope this blog can act as a source of information and learning for myself, as well as others. Thank you for checking out this blog, I hope you enjoy it as I develop it further.
