CS 401: First Post

Hello all,

My name is Derek Carlin. I am currently in my Junior year here at Worcester State. For this course we will be creating an IPad app for the Worcester Art Museum, for which we will need to both research and understand different programming languages, i.e HTML 5, CSS and Javascript. I’m looking forward to being able to use these since I haven’t been exposed to them yet. I do not intend to go into the programming field of computer science after I graduate, but knowing these languages will still be a major benefit.

Here is a little bit of background on me personally. As I said above I am a Junior here at WSU, in addition to that I am currently “interning” at Capgemini where I have been employed since 2010, both in the fields of Operations and System Administration. Currently I am expanding to the fields of networking and storage.So my strengths lay in the fields of System Administration (using the VMWare products as opposed to its competitors), instead of in programming. I am also a first degree black belt in Tang Soo Do and currently training in Krav Maga working towards my second degree in that art.

So far the only real challenge of starting this blog was simply finding the time to do so. Like everyone else I have a very busy life.
