|What areas do you specialize in? (ex: Creative writing, web development, finance, activism, etc.)|
Web development, machine learning, programming in general. I enjoy working on the business side of things as well.
|Talk about a time where you organized/built/created something.|
I started work on a web app that performs matrix transformations on images, PictoMath, in the summer. I've completed the front-end and the majority of the back-end functionality and once I pass (?) CMSC330 and CMSC351 I'll get to work on integrating the two with Flask or some other framework. It's really a very simple application but I think that goes to show you that cool things can be made with nearly trivial amounts of code.
|What is something you've learned related to your specializations, and what are your thoughts on it?|
I've gotten good with React. I'm a big fan of the kind of modular design that React encourages. Good React components are simple, strictly functional, and reusable. I try to incorporate a React-like design into everything I program.
|What are your passions, and how do you engage with them?|
I like to build things and one day I want to build something that could truly be called technology -- something that helps people make more from less. Programming gives me a way to make things with almost no barriers to entry. It's as easy as typing create-react-app into the terminal. I also like to think about the future and what we could make it look like.
|Have you applied to Startup Shell before?||Yes|
|Why do you want to join Startup Shell?|
To be honest with you I'm applying to work on my nascent startup and hopefully have access to the technical/legal/design resources that startup shell provides. I'm really applying to join on the founders track. I thought the application for founders would be open today but apparently it's only for fellows. I emailed the membership account about this.
Being a fellow would be cool if I'm working on a project that I'm interested in. I'm applying to work with people who want to make things.
|How did you hear about us?||EIP|
