Michelle

I love this club! So happy to be the President again.
I am a long time tutor at SBCC and if you ever need help with Java, Python, C++, C, C#, HTML/CSS or anything else, feel free to ask me! :)

"Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better idiot-proof programs, and the Universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the Universe is winning."

Tyler

Hey guys! I'm the chubby guy that walks around the lab that is too good at console games to switch to pc.
I've been playing console games competitively for 5+ years. I love everything about technology, gaming, and programming.

With all the other officers' help, we look to make this semester not only productive, but fun as well.


Secretary

Tyler

David

Though David is often seen in his habitat eating food, he enjoys when people stop and say Hi.

So don't forget to stop and say Hi.
