Spring 2016 Coursework
April 25, 2016
Wrapping up my third year @ UW, I’m enrolled in:
- Data Structures & Algorithms (CSE 373): Fundamental algorithms, data structures for implementation, techniques for solving problems by programming and all that jazz.
- Software Entrepreneurship (ENTRE 432/CSE 490): Exploring challenges of launching a software product or company, along with rehearsing a software launch. I’ll be developing and pitching an iOS app called Rebound, which allows users to share content with friends. Rebound separates itself from other messaging platform apps through its the reminding algorithm, which pings a user to check out a link shared with them when they aren’t busy.
- Data Visualization (CSE 512): Techniques and algorithms for developing advanced visualizations using graphic design, visual art, perceptual psychology, and cognitive science. I’ll be developing lots of interactive visualizations in D3.js that I’ll be sharing. The course is taught by Jeff Heer, a co-creator of the D3 library.
- Intermediate Microeconomics (ECON 300): The usual microeconomics topics; analysis of decisions by individuals and by firms and of outcomes in factor and product markets.
