RATTLER “CODE” “PRIDE” / FLORIDA A&M UNIVERSITY

JONATHAN ELIZE

Florida A&M University · ATTENDED TCX 2017
I am Jonathan Elize, a third year computer science student attending Florida A&M University. I first began programming in the twelfth grade while dual enrolling at Broward College as I took a programming course. I was taught some of Python programming during that time and was able to make a 2d “Rock, Paper, Scissor” game by the end of that class. Fast forward about a year and I began to learn another language, C++, through a programming class at FAMU and learned a lot about that program. Currently, I aim to learn object-oriented programming through C++, develop my skills in the Python language, and learn how to make web pages using HTML, CSS, and javascript.

SEBRENIA COLEMAN

Florida A&M University · ATTENDED TCX 2017
I am Sebrenia Coleman, a third year Computer Science student at Florida A&M University. I began learning C++ programming in the Spring of 2016 in my fundamentals of programming class. Soon after, I took an interest in web development and began to teach myself HTML, CSS, and JavaScript. In the summer of 2017, I interned at Microsoft where I utilized these skills to build a web based software using a combination of SQL, C#, and CSS.

CHRISTOPHER GRIFFIN

Florida A&M University · ATTENDED TCX 2017
I am Christopher Griffin, a third year Computer Science student attending Florida A&M University. I first began programming in my freshman year of college where I learned C++. Since then, I have completed an internship at Northrop Grumman where my knowledge of C++ was further honed and I worked on creating user interfaces. I’ve also dabbled in website development where I learned HTML and Javascript. Most importantly, I am in the process of creating my very own video game using Unity. This is also where I learned C#. The demo to my video game is expected to be finished in the next few weeks.

ASHLEY SHORTER

Florida A&M University · ATTENDED TCX 2017
I am Ashley Shorter, a second year Computer Science student attending Florida A&M University. I began programming my freshman year of high school in engineering courses and continued learning to code through my high school career and into college. During my years of programming I have learned HTML, CSS, Bootstrap, Javascript, React.js, VB.net, Java, C++, and Git. I am currently employed at my university as a Web Developer, and interned this summer at Express Scripts as a Web Development Engineer. I also participated in a national Mobile Application Development Competition this summer in which I was given two months to brainstorm, create, and present a fully-functioning mobile application. I received first place in the competition and was awarded scholarship money for my application. I continue developing in my free-time, freelancing and creating small applications to accomplish simple tasks.
