Good Advice For Computer Science Students

While reading Planet Gnome, I read a good post by Clare So discussing programming suggestions for CS students. I thought it was a particularly good read, and would like to also discuss it here. The inspiration for his post, and mine as well, comes from a list of suggestions found on Google (that link is […]

ACM- ACMs Corporate Misguidance

Caution, this is a very lengthy post. One year ago, I was elected as the Chair for the local ACM chapter at WSU. Unfortunately, it ended in tragedy. I would like to share this experience with you. Becoming the ACM Chair actually extends a great deal back. Long before I even knew what the ACM […]

Frustrated With School

I only have a few minutes to post before I have to run into work, so I'll keep this short and to the point. I am beginning to grow tired of the Computer Science program at Weber State University. If you are a professor or faculty member of the department reading this post, I am […]
