About Me

Welcome to my website! I'm Jonathan Dalcourt, a first-year Computer Science major at the University of Texas at Austin. I'm mainly interested in mobile app/web development and network security, but I'm still exploring career choices. I'm a member of UT's Freshman Research Initiative: In spring 2018, we'll begin conducting research related to Quantum Computing. I'm also a member of the National Society of Black Engineers (NSBE) and the African-American Male Research Initiative. I'm starting this website as a way to improve my skills, so it's a bit of a work in progress. My full bio page is here.

Projects

In my Intro to Programming class at UT, we're working on various projects to introduce us to Object-Oriented Programming, specifically Java. Some of the assignments we've completed include creating programs to: play Hangman, Connect Four, and Rock/Paper/Scissors with a computer; analyse a file of sports records to determine the effects of a home field advantage; and encrypt/decrypt messages with various cyphers. Check them out on the Academic Projects page!

My main personal project is this website. Other than the three main web design languages (HTML, Javascript, and CSS) I'm working on learning Java and Python. Over winter break I plan on beginning development on simple Android applications, such as an alarm clock. The image to the left is a graphic created in Java inspired by one of my favorite albums (more about that here).
