Social Coding

Fall 2021 - Present

The mission of Social Coding is to advocate, provide resources, support, and foster a community of students capable of utilizing technology to further enrich the human condition.

    Fall 2021 - Spring 2022

    Worked alongside other students in the club to experiment with new technologies including React Native, Express, MySQL, Google Maps, and more. Collaborated with other students to create a mobile application that allows users to find and share local events on campus with other Student Organizations. Learned about the process of creating a mobile application from start to finish, including the design, development, and deployment of the application.

    Director of External Relations

    Fall 2022 - Spring 2023

    Served as the external relations director and the main point of communication to other student organizations. Organized a highly successful Spring Tech Kickoff alongside four other Computer Science student organizations that doubled membership numbers. Furthermore, I developed two workshops to teach members of Social Coding skills that can assist them with their projects in the future. The first workshop was a modification of a workshop from the Massachusets Institute of Technology (MIT) called The Missing Semester of CS. The second workshop was a workshop that taught students how utilize Databases, SQL, and schema design to create a database for their projects. Lastly, I overhauled the organizational structure and made it far more efficient by rewriting the club constitution and developing a meeting structure focused on task completion.

    President

    Fall 2023 - Spring 2024

    Currently working with organizations across the university to secure funding for projects and events held by Social Coding. Furthermore I'm working with the school's administration to provide more opportunities for members in the organization in terms of research and internship opportunities. Moreover, I'm increasing our connection with Alumni to provide students with more opportunities to network and learn from those who have graduated from the University as well as recieve mock interviews and resume reviews. Lastly, I'm also working on creating two new workshops for the organization, one on the topic of Web Development and the other on the topic of Data Vizualization and Analysis. I'm also working on creating a new website for the organization to better showcase the work of our members and to provide a better experience for those who are interested in joining the organization.
