Favorite Classes @ WPI

Software Engineering w/ Prof. Wong

CS 3733

Initially, a class that assigns you to work on software for a kiosk at a hospital may not seem very exciting, but this quickly became my favorite experience at WPI. Figuring out how to organize a team of 11 contributors all with different strengths and skill sets (some of them being Robotics Engineering majors instead of Computer Science majors) and meeting late into the night everyday for the last 4 weeks of class lead to a yet-to-be-matched bonding experience among teammates.

Keywords: Java, JavaFX w/ JFoenix, Agile

Elementary & Intermediate Chinese

CN 1541, 1542, 1543, 2541, 2542, 2543

I really enjoyed the introduction to Mandarin that these 6 classes brought. While it may not seem directly related to my major, the Chinese software industry has an ever growing presence in the open source community.

Operating Systems

CS 3013

As a long time user of linux distros, this class became my favorite programming class at WPI as it forced me to go through the steps of adding system calls and compiling the linux kernel with our own modifications, and then writing C code to make the system calls ourselves. Additionally it served as a nice introduction to utilizing threads and the dangers of shared resources like locks.

Keywords: C++, C, Linux Kernel Modules

Theory of Interest I & II

MA 2211, 2212

I never expected to have so much fun taking a class on actuarial math. Learning more about cashflows, bonds, spot rates, currency exchanges, and interest calculations made for a very enjoyable fall stuck indoors.

Robotics IV: Autonomous Navigation

RBE 3002

Using Robot Operating System (ROS) is like writing microservices for the subsystems on your robot. I had heard of FRC 900 utilizing ROS, but until this class I never understood what that meant. Getting our Turtlebot to navigate to human selected waypoints through its LIDAR sensors brought much joy and frustration throughout this hands-on course.

Keywords: ROS, Python 2

My Beloved High School in Portland, ME

Baxter Academy for Technology and Science

What if kids could learn without the pressure of grades?

Inspired by Google's 20% Project, here students had their entire Fridays to work on their own projects.

One of these projects was FIRST Robotics Competition Team 5687

The Outliers

During my junior year, we finished 4th in the world out of 3000+ teams competing globally.

And as a young team set multiple world records.

A school without cliques.

A dress code created by students.

A judicial board run by students

A school run like a startup

Software Developers, Robotics Engineers, Musicians, and PhDs

who pivoted to teaching high school students.

Move fast, break drywall (2x), and change the world.
