-Hi, I'm Austin Adams, a senior in Computer Science at the [Georgia
-Institute of Technology][1]. Since I enjoy low-level work and computer

-[threads][2], and I expect to graduate in Fall 2018.

-Previously, I attended [Kennesaw State University][3] for two years, one
-of which was full time in my senior year of high school through the [Dual

-Today, I work as the head teaching assistant for CS 2110, the intro to
-computer architecture course at Georgia Tech. I manage a team of TAs
-creating course material with the ultimate goal of stuffing knowledge of
-circuits, assembly, and C into students' brains with minimal suffering.
-We get to help students write recursive assembly, malloc()
-implementations, and Game Boy Advance games — it's fun!
