Why Computer Science?

I love computer science because everything is a puzzle waiting to be solved.  There's so much room for creativity, and there's always more than one way to accomplish something.  Also, it's really exciting to be learning about a field that's changing to rapidly.  I became a UTA because I loved my experience in COMP110, and I want to share my love for CS with people who might be intimidated by their first programming experience.

Favorite Programming Keyword

Interface in Java! I think it's the perfect example of abstraction in computer science because one thing can be implemented in infinite ways based on the purpose you need it to serve.
