TA / RA
- Cisco Systems networking and linux classes.
- In 2014 and 2015, I was quite enthusiastic about coursera. Here is my coursera profile. I regretted having taken a few classes, but realized it only when I was half through and decided to finish them, nevertheless. The three most awesome classes have been Fundamentals of Electrical Engineering (I hold a minor in EE and this course was a perfect refresher covering everything I used to know on just the right intellectual level), Introduction to Classical Music (here I learned something that will last a life-time: appreciation for classical music), and Machine Learning (this is not a very difficult class and the highlight is not machine learning per se, but the matlab centered homework helping to write efficient matlab code). I completed these courses:
- A clickable program map for interactively exploring abstractions of a procedural abstraction pass [click].
- Code compactor for intel linux [click].
