learning, creating, & navigating

from new york city to Austin, Texas.

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways,

that I may dissect thy resume."

I am a New York native, Austin developer, StuyCS Alumnus and hackNY Fellow studying at the University of Texas at Austin.

I'm the current Innovation director for HackTX and a student organizer for Global Hackathon Seoul. I'm also an Android developer for early-stage startup Cerebri and a software engineering intern at MongoDB, architecting their new Rust driver. In the past, I've worked for GeoTrellis as a Facebook Open Academy engineer, for Amazon AWS on their distributed RDS and DynamoDB technologies, and for local Austin company Blastro Networks, developing and orchestrating a simultaneous release of their three flagship Android apps.

I'm an Android and Backend developer with hacker experience using Node.js, Docker, PostgreSQL, Spark Cores, Myo Armbands, and an assortment of other technologies to create exciting tools. My team recently placed third at HackTX 2014 for our gesture-controlled LiteTurn hack. I've worked at the systems level in C, done Graphics and Physical Simulation work and research in C++ and OpenGL, developed Computer Vision applications using OpenCV, and worked with an assortment of scripting and web development tools in Python, Perl, Ruby, Scala, and Golang.

If you'd like to gossip with me about Android development, Distributed systems, Computer vision and graphics, or that one movie where Audrey Hepburn plays a blind woman, contact me at kevinyeah@utexas.edu.
