As of this writing, I am a computer science grad student studying under Dennis Volper. I got my BS in computer science in December of 2010 (4.5 years after I entered college in 2006. Yes it pays to have a plan guys. That's all there is to it, besides studying obviously).
I am an intern at IBM with several potential job offers. My area of expertise is Unix/Linux System Administration. I acquired so much Windows experience over the years, I hate to admit I probably know it better.
Though I don't truly consider myself a coder or software engineer, I'm ironically enough better at those than many of my coworkers and many students (Hint: Don't declare variables named sssss and sssSSS). I'm no Edgar Martinez or Andrew Meredith, but I know my way around more programming languages than I can count on one hand. Having seen so much code over the years, I am usually able to help someone if they have a problem they are stuck on. Helps to have more than one set of eyes guys. No reason to go through coding completely alone.
