Problem Solving

Day to Day

I go to the gym on campus, then get cleaned up and head to my desk. I update my local computer's code base, to synchronize with my coworkers. I then take a look at the days' tasks and begin work. Usually around 10 or 11 we have a meeting to make sure all is going smoothly. Then it's lunch at the campus cafeteria, and then back to work. I leave generally after 8 hours, unless the project has an immediate deadline or issues that must be resolved.

Advice for Getting Started
