Member of the Month for April: Jack Kolb
The Member of the Month for November goes to Jack Kolb! Even though Jack isn't a computing related major, he's been incredibly involved with the ACM chapter!
Who are you?
My name is Jack Kolb and I am a second year Mechanical Engineer at UCR. My interests are in general artificial intelligence, wireless networks, and robotics. I love programming, am not a CS major, so I try to learn as much as possible through ACM, hackathons, projects, and sitting in on CS courses.
What got you interested in computer science?
I used to make games on my TI-83 calculator during my 2-hour High School commute. At the end of High School I finally explored Python, and was inspired by my first-year roommate to learn C++.
What's the best advice you have received?
Write down your goals and tape them to your bedroom door -- keeping them in mind will guide you to achieving them.
Get an A on my Fluid Mechanics midterm! Beyond that I'll be starting a company; been playing with a few ideas.
