Coding Machines

Over the years, I've been blessed to have several super coders work for me or under my partial supervision and guidance:



Besides these fine people, I also worked with jellybeanzulu, who was a research programmer for a colleague of mine at the time (1998-1999, when we were all at NCSA).

I can honestly say I am humbled by the amount of sheer talent that has come out of my labs.
I would characterize most of the above, without derogation, as "coding machines", including, but not limited to, the undergrads. They are just head and shoulders above students of similar experience. Furthermore, they enrich our program: I can honestly say that my current crop of students (including masaga) and I are made better programmers by zengeneral's positive influence.

(My coding machine story to go here.)

you remind me that I don't work hard enough.

Still, I have trouble not reading books all the time and actually implementing code.

There's so much I don't know, and the more I read, the more I realize it. I'm daunted, stagnated, and flailing. How do I write a good paper?

Writing better

Heh. I need to remind myself, sometimes.

Still, I have trouble not reading books all the time and actually implementing code.
You said it!

Start now? Practice makes perfect.

Try joining techwriting and grantwriting while you're at it.

You're welcome!
Let me know how it goes.
I'd appreciate any recommendations you might have, too.

good to see some women on your impressive list.
maybe you're just an excellent advisor to these people. ;)

:nods:
Some of my very best students (and the strongest one, academically speaking) are female.

maybe you're just an excellent advisor to these people. ;)
Why, thanks!
It's really more to their credit than to my own.

Mike Perry is a pal of mine. My freshman-year roommate. An ace hacker indeed!

Memory allocation debugging ... must not get into the wrong hands ...
