CS56, Fall 2018

Course Staff Bios:


Phill Conrad is a Senior Lecturer in the CS department at UCSB. He is interested in ways of incorporating authentic software development experiences into undergraduate computer science courses. Outside of CS, his interests include piano, guitar, hiking and meditation.


Daniel is a fourth year Computer Science major mentoring CS56 this quarter. He has been doing research on data visualization and scientific computing in the context of HPC for three summers at Los Alamos National Lab. He has no idea where he wants to take this experience, what kind of career to pursue, or even whether to join academia or the private sector after he graduates. His hobbies apart from CS are photography, cooking and taking one hike per year.


I am Santha, first-year Computer Science Master's student. This is my first time being a TA and I look forward to building our applications together for CS56. Cheers!


I am an undergrad going on to my fourth year in CS. My minor is in Arts and Technology. This summer, I am doing my first internship with a startup downtown where I am porting an iOS app to Android. I hope to keep working on mobile apps in the future. I also have a very deep passion for cats of all sizes. My friend and I are trying to make a fun augmented reality app with cats. Personally, I think CS48 and CS56 were some of the most useful classes I have taken here. They prepared me the most for my internship now.
