Back in high school, I learned to program while riding the bus to and from work. I'd have a copy of K&R on one leg and my laptop on the other.
Once I compiled and ran
./a.out and saw that wonderful output...
Hello, world!, I was hooked.
Currently, I study computer science and play water polo at San Jose State University (go Spartans!).
In the past, I worked for Digiwest, LLC - a small IT firm based in Portland, OR. I currently work as a software engineering intern for Northrop Grumman focusing mainly on embedded Linux development.
