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
science theory, I chose the Theory and Systems & Architecture
[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
Enrollment Honors Program][4].

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!

Professionally, I've worked on both GNU/Linux and Windows applications,
from shell scripts to ASP.NET MVC, but in my free time, I write tools
for GNU/Linux, mainly command-line utilities and webapps. See my
[projects page][5] for details.
