Skills

I’m experienced with C# and Java in a professional environment, fluent in Python, OCaml and C++. Varied and less experience with other languages such as C, XAML, VB.NET, SQL, but I know my way around good enough.

Currently dabbling in web languages like JavaScript, and SASS (a superset of CSS) as well as looking at all the awesome web frameworks.

Technologies I’ve worked with include WPF, COM/DCOM, VMware Virtualization, Git, TFS, Visual Source Safe, MSSQL, PostgreSQL and InstallShield. Take a look at my Projects page for a few projects I’ve worked on.


Work Experience

Co-op Intern in Software Engineering

  • Emerson Process Management
  • Eden Prairie, Minnesota
  • January 2015 - September 2015

What I’ve done:

  • Written C# software to create a simulated network using customer’s MSSQL database backup, development includes using XAML/WPF to create a simple UI, multi-threading, parsing and fetching device data using XML, and MEF for loose coupling.
  • LINQ was also used to extract information from the database and handling the XML data.
  • Upgrade legacy installers (from the VB6 days)
  • Maintain and write Unit Test Plans (UTP) and Software Design Documents (SDD)

What I’ve learnt:

  • Use multiple VMs during development of software
  • COM/DCOM is painful stuff but still very much necessary and relevant.
  • Handle code written by 3 other previous interns, which might have bugs and lack of comments.
  • Branching and shelvesets in TFS.

Undergraduate Teaching Assistant

  • Classes I’ve TA-ed for are: Introduction to Computer Science (for non-majors), Intro to Algorithms and Data Structures
  • What I’ve done: Grade, supervise and proctor homeworks and examinations, as well as carry out practical labs and hold office hours.
  • What I’ve learnt: How to communicate better, especially to others who might or might not have a technical background, further improve understanding of data structures

Student Technical Support

  • Minnesota Supercomputing Institute, University of Minnesota, March 2014 - June 2014

  • What I’ve done: Respond to issues and requests by MSI Users via multiple communication channels. Carry out off-site tape backups, systems monitoring and inventory keeping.

  • What I’ve learnt: A ton of SSH (seriously a good feeling tunneling into a supercomputer), Dabbled into what Splunk, Jenkins, Puppet do and keep the whole system up and running, Performed tape backups on a supercomputer.


Other Activities

Presenter for the USApps Workshop

Taylor’s University
I was fortunate enough for an opportunity to be give a 40 minute talk about US education pathways to attendees (over 200 students). The workshop was a great success. If you’re in Malaysia and have friend or younger sibling that are considering studying in the US head on over to their website!

Project Leader for CSE Expo

University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
Independently designed and received funding for showcasing 2 hands-on projects (Banana Keyboard and build your own Raspberry Pi laptop) to encourage children from multiple schools to be involved with STEM fields.

Transfer Peer Guide

University of Minnesota - Twin Cities
I was in charge of showing students who have transferred to the university from other states and countries how to be accustomed and a part of the universities big and diverse groups.
