Who are you? I’m the new guy! The name’s Mark Anderson and I’m on my third week interning at GS with the tech team. So far, I’ve been absorbing… taking in the “sites” if you will. In addition, I’ve spent some time assisting in the development of the back-end portions of a great Mercury Marine project and have as of recent begun preparing models for the Samson project.
What are you studying? I’m a Junior at Miami University. Initially, I began as a violin-performance major but have recently transitioned into computer-science.
So far my encounters at GS have far outshined the bleak academic world of computer science I’ve come to accept. Here, people actually talk! And, the atmosphere is friendly and almost completely comprised of the continuous scent of chocolate chip-cookies wafting from the kitchen.
What cool stuff have you done? I’m big into developing social networks and composing music. Years back, I developed a networking site for composers and their music. The site now has over 300 members and 3500 original compositions uploaded. My profile is located at www.evotu.com/anderma. I uploaded a few compositions and recommend giving “the epic” or “journey” a listen.
What’s your favorite superhero? The Coon.
What are you excited about? Sounding my barbaric yawp from the rooftops of mountains… with a fresh brewed cup of Caribou coffee in hand.
What do you want to learn? First and foremost, I want to learn everybody’s name. And, in the long term I hope to know enough django/python to be a useful addition.
