About Me

I'm Tarj Mecwan and a

Hi! My name is Tarj Mecwan. I am studying Computer Science at Cal Poly SLO. I'm very passionate and dedicated to my work. I’ve always sought out opportunities and challenges that are meaningful to me. I've always been engaged in my passion in helping others and solving problems. It’s my constant goal to have attention to detail, and use my unequivocal love for problem-solving to make a positive impact in the world.


Past Experience

  • Summer 2023 marked an exciting chapter in my journey as a software engineer, as I embarked on a transformative internship at Altura. Over the course of three months, I had the privilege of contributing to a variety of projects that showcased the intersection of cutting-edge technology and real-world application. From expanding the logging system to integrating NFT marketplaces, my experience was a whirlwind of learning, growth, and innovation.

    One of my key responsibilities was to enhance Altura's application logging system. I delved deep into the existing architecture, identifying areas where security and compliance could be bolstered. With meticulous attention to detail, I incorporated measures to safeguard sensitive user data by decoding data packets efficiently. This not only strengthened the security framework but also ensured compliance with industry regulations.

    A highlight of my internship was the opportunity to be part of an Agile team tasked with developing a web app for hosting online marketplace auctions. Collaborating closely with fellow developers, I contributed to the entire lifecycle of the project. From conceptualization and design to coding and testing, every stage was a lesson in teamwork and problem-solving. The app was not only visually appealing but also efficiently performed calculations on collected data, providing users with a seamless experience.

    As the internship progressed, I took on a leadership role in a groundbreaking project – the integration of an NFT marketplace across diverse gaming communities. Leveraging innovative blockchain technology solutions, we managed to bridge the gap between virtual gaming assets and tangible value. The successful integration resulted in increased engagement among users and a notable boost in revenue. It was immensely gratifying to witness how technology could transform user experiences and business outcomes simultaneously.

    My summer internship at Altura was nothing short of a roller-coaster ride filled with challenges and triumphs. From fortifying security to delivering feature-rich web apps and venturing into the world of NFTs, I gained insights into the vast potential of software engineering. The experience not only honed my technical skills but also fostered a deeper appreciation for teamwork, adaptability, and the impact of technology on the modern world. As I conclude this chapter, I carry forward the lessons and memories, excited for the future challenges and opportunities that await in the world of software engineering.

  • At NYX Inc., I had the opportunity to work on a variety of projects that exposed me to different aspects of the software development process. I was able to learn and apply various programming languages and frameworks, including Java and Python, to build web applications and data analysis tools. I also had the chance to collaborate with a team of experienced engineers and learn from them through code reviews and team meetings.

    One of the highlights of my internship was the chance to work on a project that involved designing and implementing a new feature for the company's flagship product. This experience allowed me to apply the knowledge and skills I had gained during my internship in a real-world setting, and it was incredibly rewarding to see my contributions make a positive impact on the product.

    In addition to the technical skills I developed during my internship, I also had the opportunity to improve my communication and collaboration skills. Working closely with my team, I learned the importance of clear and effective communication in order to ensure that everyone was on the same page and working towards the same goals. I also gained experience working in a professional environment, which helped me develop my time management and problem-solving abilities. Overall, my internship was a valuable learning experience that helped me grow as a software engineer and solidified my interest in pursuing a career in this field.

  • In summer of 2021, I had the opportunity to intern as a software engineer at a cryptocurrency and NFT company. It was an exciting and challenging experience, and I learned a lot about the field of programming and the inner workings of a major tech company.

    I worked on a wide range of projects during my internship, from small bug fixes to larger features and enhancements. One of the most interesting projects I worked on was a new feature for the company's website and mobile app. I was responsible for developing the backend logic for the feature, which involved writing complex algorithms and working with large datasets.

    I also had the chance to collaborate with other members of the development team, which was a great opportunity to learn from experienced professionals and see how they approach problem-solving. In addition, I attended various workshops and trainings on topics such as software design patterns and best practices, which helped me improve my skills and knowledge of the field.

    Overall, my internship was a valuable and rewarding experience. I gained a lot of practical knowledge and hands-on experience, and I feel more confident in my ability to succeed in the field of programming. I'm grateful for the opportunity and I would highly recommend this internship to anyone interested in pursuing a career in programming.

  • Massey Game Jam | Founder & Executive Director

    Massey Game Jam Sept 2019 - June 2021

    Starting the largest Canadian hackathon was an ambitious and challenging project, but it was also a hugely rewarding experience. The hackathon brought together hundreds of talented and passionate programmers from across Canada, who came together to collaborate and create innovative solutions to a wide range of problems.

    The hackathon was a huge success, with participants working tirelessly throughout the weekend to develop their ideas and bring them to fruition. The atmosphere was electric, with a sense of camaraderie and excitement as teams worked together to tackle complex challenges.

    In addition to providing a platform for collaboration and creativity, the hackathon also offered participants the opportunity to learn from industry experts and leaders. We invited a number of experts to speak at the event, providing valuable insights and advice on a range of topics related to programming and entrepreneurship.

    One of the highlights of the hackathon was the final pitch competition, where teams had the chance to showcase their projects to a panel of judges. The judges were impressed by the quality and creativity of the projects, and awarded a number of prizes to the top teams.

    Overall, starting Massey Game Jam was an incredible experience. It brought together some of the most talented and passionate programmers in the country, and provided a platform for collaboration, learning, and innovation. I'm incredibly proud of what we accomplished, and I'm excited to see where the hackathon will go in the future.
