Lives of alumni, faculty, students, etc. Births, marriages, jobs, moves, deaths, etc.
Hans Anderson, a class of 2001 Computer Science major, is the lead developer behind iFretless Bass, one supercool app for making music. I can’t hope to describe it; go to their web site and view one or more of their videos, in which you’ll see and hear Hans demonstrating its responsive musicality. When not running [...]
Four students majoring in Math and Computer Science are studying abroad this semester and at least two of them are blogging about the experience. Math major Rebecca Anderson ’13 is writing the blog “Rebecca Goes to China” from Zhuhai, China, and Computer Science major Michael Patterson ’14 has contributed two posts so far to the [...]
Matt “Twig” Johnson, a CS major from the class of 2000, is visible in the promotional video on the Defense Grid 2 Kickstarter project from his employer, Hidden Path Entertainment. (Hat tip: Brian Kleinke ’01 and Matthew Hirsch ’00.)
The post-commencement reception provided a happy meeting for Brad Duhaime, a 1985 MCS major, and his old advisor, Professor Terry Morrison. Duhaime was there to celebrate graduation of his son, Chris. Left to right: Chris Duhaime ’12, Brad Duhaime ’85, and Prof. Morrison.
Gustavus MCS alumnus Milo M.K. Martin ’96 is featured in an article in New Scientist describing a novel computer design intended for mobile devices that need brief bursts of intense computational performance. The paper describing this approach will be presented next week in the best-paper session of the High Performance Computer Architecture conference; the lead author, Arun [...]
Gustavus MCS alumnus Travis Dahlke has once again been written up in the Minneapolis Star Tribune for the Hands for Harvest organization which he co-founded with his brother Nathan Dahlke, likewise a Gustavus MCS alumnus. This time the focus is on the gardens at Travis’s employer, C.H. Robinson. Update: here are links back to our [...]
Javen Swanson, a 2006 math alum, is pictured in the Minneapolis Star Tribune with his husband, Oby Ballinger, as the photo illustration accompanying the article “Marriage vote sparring begins.”
Computer Science graduate Justin Haaheim (2006) was interviewed today on WNPR. His segment begins about 6 minutes 30 seconds in.
While on sabbatical leave, I figured I’d do some research on pi, which I frequently teach about. And since I had no reason to stick around for classes (or the snowstorm that was postponing classes that day), I’d head to the Mission District of San Francisco. The photo documents the research result I achieved there: [...]
The students in the robotics workshop course have been hard at work this J-Term and they are finally seeing the fruits of their labor. They have spent the past three weeks learning about robotics, computer programming, wiring, and have designed, built, tested, and re-tested their designs and are currently working out any last minute bugs in hopes of becoming the 2011 RoboPong Champion.
