Where did you grow up?
Spring, Texas (Houston)
What high school did you attend?
Klein High School.
What was your favorite extracurricular activity in high school?
I was in the chess club and I went beast mode.
Why did you come to UT?
Because it is the best public school in Texas. I didn’t want to go out of state because of financial reasons.
Why are you majoring in CS?
Because I find the work really fun, easy, and rewarding.
Why are you in this class?
I had Downing for SWE and I really enjoyed him as a professor. I also need to work on my C++ skills.
What are your expectations of this class?
I imagine it’s going to be a lot like SWE.
How much C++ do you already know?
How did you like the two lectures?
They were pretty good.
How did you feel about the cold calling?
Don’t really like it, but this semester I am much more comfortable with it since it’s on Zoom and things are a bit more anonymous.
What made you happy this week?
It was my girlfriend’s birthday this week and we had a lot of fun going to the domain, having a cheese plate and hanging out in the apartment.
What’s your pick-of-the-week or tip-of-the-week?
My tip-of-the-week is to learn React JS. It will instantly make you basically a full-stack developer if you’re already comfortable with the back-end. It’s also a really fun language to learn.
