Where did you grow up?
I grew up in a small town in Guangdong, China, where there are less than 3 million people.
Why did you come to UT?
UT is the best public university in Texas, and before college, I lived in Texas and had no intention to go out of the state, so I chose the best in Texas.
Why are you majoring in CS?
I felt it would be fun to code for a living.
Why are you in this class?
I want to learn as much as I can for C++ and OOP, as it will definitely enhance my understanding of software design in the incoming career.
How much C++ do you already know?
I coded with C++ in my operating system class, so I know at least some of it.
How did you like the two lectures?
I felt they are good, and I could easily catch up.
How did you feel about the cold calling?
It could be stressful not knowing the answers, but it is not unacceptable.
