Here's a place to let people know what, exactly, you can hack. (Or use.)

Computer Languages

Assembly Language

Travis Vachon (kind of...)

Paul N. Stansifer '07 (my claim to masculinity)

Jessica Chung (I'd be the a5 register on the emulator because that one definitely doesn't work.)

Jing Cao now knows he should extend before division

Son Ho (I make things crash)


Michael Gnozzio (if only my Cowshell were so scriptable)


Steve Winslow '04

Brent Yorgey '04


Travis Vachon

Brent Yorgey '04

Rahul Shah

Jing Cao Compiled his second C program with no syntax errors

Jerry He Just compiled his 300th C program with 33 syntax errors

Michael Gnozzio (since dealing with pointers and manual memory management is so trivial, it's a good thing we have MPI to make C programming more difficult)


Brent Yorgey '04 (the most beautiful language ever -- don't give me this Ruby crap)


Alan Cordova Booyah!


Daniel Rooney (disgusting)

Evan Miller (shamefully well)

Brent Yorgey '04 (I frickin' TEACH this language)

Jessica Chung (not bad either.)

Michael Gnozzio (no shame here)


Evan Miller (just a pinch)


Joe Shoer '06 (though he's ashamed to admit he knows such a stupid language)

Sam Clapp '06 (It is NOT a stupid language! Three cheers for graphical programming!)


Daniel Klein (too good for word processing)

Evan Miller (too poor for Word)

Michael Gnozzio (really, what good is WYSIWYG?)

Diana Davis '07 (infinitely superior to anything else)

Travis Vachon (It's pretty frickin sweet)

Matthew Earle (Offers TeX services for $10/hr.)

Jessica Chung (Would like her chemistry reports to be TeX-ed, but alas, converting chemical structures from ChemDraw to .jpg on her Windows side and then switching into her Linux side where the Windows side is mounted and then converting .jpgs into the accepted TeX format is too many steps. But if she ever decided aesthetics were worth everything and anything, she'd be all up ons for chem reports TeX-ed.)

Aidan Finley '04 spent a week teaching it to himself during his thesis crunch, which indirectly contributed to a case of sleep deprivation and a subsequent fall in Sawyer Library. This in turn produced a leg wound which required hospitalization during Senior Week.


(cons 'Brent Yorgey (cons '04 (cons 'Jessica Chung '07)))


Jerry He (great language for quick visual programming)


Daniel Klein (is too a real language)

Joe Shoer '06 (it's my thesis, and I can do more with it than the math nerds can)

Laura Effinger-Dean '06 (I make pretty pictures for my thesis!)

Nick Yates '06 (Pretty spirals! Ooh!)

Diana Davis '07 (I'll isoperimeterize you!)

Any physics major worth their weight in problem sets

Jerry He (a must-learn for any physics major)

Michael Gnozzio (a must-learn for any CS major also)

Objective C

Michael Gnozzio (yay for Cocoa!)


Nick Yates '06 (For a number theoretic software called PARI; similar to C)


Kai Steverson (competent)

Evan Miller (wizardly)

Jing Cao (kind of)

Brent Yorgey '04 (JAPH)

Michael Gnozzio (well enough to know i despise it)


Young Hahn (godly)

Katherine Huang (sort of)

Dave Senft (also knows what the P stands for)

Jessica Chung (When really desperate and focused.)

Ronit Bhattacharyya (kinda...but I know what all three letters stand for)


Evan Miller (a terrible language)


Travis Vachon (the scripting language of choice)

Jerry He (the greatest language ever invented! If not the most useful)

Ronit Bhattacharyya (it's okay, but it's no Ruby)


Daniel Klein (it makes statistics fun!)

Evan Miller (needs to learn how to put his skills on his own line but is probably very capable at R)


Evan Miller (the scripting language of choice)

Ronit Bhattacharyya '07 (the most beautiful language ever)

Jerry He (the language of convenience)

Johnny Greeley

Michael Gnozzio (where's the strong type checking? the explicit variable declarations? what if I want a global constant?)

WC3400 Microcode

Travis Vachon (well, at one point at least...)

Jessica Chung (Short and slow microcode, like her short and slow self.)

Jing Cao Broke the phase 2 record


Ronit Bhattacharyya '07 (hey, at least I'm not claiming CSS & HTML to be languages)


Breaking CPU chips

Son Ho (one victim hung on my door)


Jonathan Landsman (fast, loud, and blind. has entertained friends)



Jessica Chung (Don't make me clipware you.)

Hazen Parsons

Microsoft Paint

Peter Tosirisuk doesn't need your fancy "Pho-to-shop" razzmatazz.


Jonathan Landsman '05 (godly)

Adobe Photoshop

David Rodriguez (Has ridiculous photoshop skills and can do just about anything with a digital image given enough time)

Ines Major (also has ridiculous skills)


Jonathan Landsman '05 (fears no page/margin/line spacing/font size requirement)

Jono Dowse '06 (still uses it in drawing and painting mode. He is a 13-year Apple drawing veteran.)

Laurie Brink sort-of-'05 (disputes that this is actually a "computer skill," seeing as the charming thing about AppleWorks is that it's infinitely more user-friendly and intuitive than Microsoft Office)
