I think the biggest inspiration I’ve received from a class here was Computer Graphics with Dr. Reinhart. We utilized Linear Algebra tricks to perform some pretty cool graphical manipulations. The math and programming behind them required time and patience, but it was very worth while.George Nasr '16
My research focuses on a piece of software called HyperTxt, an HTML pre-processor. HTML is the language all websites are written in, and since its creation in 1989, it has seen little change in contrast to the way that the web has evolved. HyperTxt hopes to change this by making HTML more powerful and adding on features that other web tools offer.Romello Goodman '16
