« I have come to know Shane over one year as a talented, thought-provoking, and inspiring person with abundance of patience. He has been working for my company as a computer science intern after graduating from The University of Texas at Austin. I have been nothing but impressed with his work and the progress he has made to take charge of projects in a short period. I am confident that his talent and aptitude as a computer science professional and his inspirational nature will propel your students of all age groups to achieve their best. He is friendly and creative. I recommend Shane without any hesitation. »

Shane's resume

DEGREES

The University of Texas at Austin, Austin, TX (Fall 2017 - Spring 2020)
Bachelor of Science in Computer Science

EXPERIENCE

Application Developer, Sub Systems, Inc. (March 2020 - Present)
Working for a company designing and building software for use by other companies internally or as modular components in larger software.
I made inaccessible, buried, and hard-coded features of software products accessible and easy to use for users without a technical background.
I use C, C#, .NET and the win32 library to design and create user interfaces which allow the common user to quickly and easily access features which would before have necessitated modification of the source code.
The demo versions of the component software are more accessible and demonstrative of their capabilities, which has generated an increase in customer interest.

Full Stack Software Engineer, Software Engineering Project (Summer 2019)
(A project concerning the creation of a dynamic website supporting a civic cause with a RESTful API and database backend.)
I designed and implemented key components of the UI/UX of our front end using ReactJS, designed our JSON API, wrote MySQL and Python database queries, handled client side communication, and wrote unit tests.
Created a website revealing statistics on water quality and conservation, displaying geographical data on water quality in the US, and providing resources such as water conservation organization info and contact information.
Source code / proof of work: (concealed information)

Software Developer, Virtualization Project (Fall 2019)
(Tasked with contributing useful feature-related code to an open source virtualization project.)
I wrote C code to fix issues with an open source virtual machine's audio system to provide support for stereo sound output and reduce noises such as crackling.
I added support for internal undocumented registers used by some programs released by the system's developers which would not run on the virtual machine correctly.

Web Developer, Freelance (October 2018 - Present)
I utilize HTML, CSS, and Javascript to create websites showcasing small businesses' products and services.
Web Design and Graphic Design work for Pflugerville Women's Society, a nonprofit focusing on public works projects led by women in the Pflugerville, Texas area.
Web Development work for Training Wheels, a company that provided training for making sales in the automotive industry.
Graphic Design work for Shamrock Insurance, acquired by Lezam Insurance.

Lead Programmer, Operating Systems Project (Fall 2018)
(Tasked with adding functionality to a bare version of the PintOS toy operating system.)
I took initiative in leading the team towards each goal, bringing C and x86 experience and guidance to a team of primarily Java programmers.
Constructed critical components of a Linux-like operating system, such as building the handler for system service requests, implementing a fair context switching algorithm with minimal deadlock, handling virtual memory tasks such as address translation, and constructing necessary code for file system interactions and data transfer.

PROJECTS

Pantry Manager - an app maximizing utilization of pantry ingredients in the home by structuring meal plans.
GifCapture - an application for capturing a portion of the screen over time to produce animated images.
Text Prediction - creating predictive text programs using personal SMS data and Markov chains.
Virtualizing Board Games - creating computer games of traditional board games like Chess, Go, and Hive.
Procedural Generation - several projects exploring procedural generation as an asset cost reduction technique.

ACHIEVEMENTS

I have known Shame his whole life. I have witnessed him teaching skills of many levels to several people over the years . I watched home organize and teach a summer Art class, and was amazed at how well he did.Shane is an exceptional young man. He received automatic expectance into UT and finished a 4 year degree, in 3 years. Shane is a very level headed, calm spoken, intelligent man. He has always had a strong drive to succeed, and to help others do the same. His ability to learn and teach others is very strong and solid. He is kind, understanding and really takes the time to teach without pressure, and shows great pride in being able to teach others to succeed. I recommend Shane. He without a doubt, be a great asset to your business.
