Hello, my name is Matthew Rayermann. I am a sophomore at the University of Texas at Austin and I am pursuing a B.S. in Computer Science. I am from Grapevine Texas, where I attended Grapevine High School. After spending a few years creating programs on my TI-86 calculator, I began studying computer science during my sophomore year of high school. I took PreAP CS, then AP CS, and then during my senior year I was teacher aide for the AP CS class. As teacher aide I helped teach the class and I was also given the oppertunity to spend time creating my own projects. During my junior and senior years, I also competed in BPA's Java Programming competition where during my junior year I went to the state level, and then during my senior year, I advanced to the national level and placed 5th in the nation.
Here at UT, I'm currently taking Operating Systems (CS 439), along with a few other non-CS courses. Over the summer I was an intern at Raytheon in Garland, TX where I was placed on an internal research project that focused on cloud computing. I gained valuable experience in agile software development, practiced programming with Python, and worked extensively with CouchDB. Lastly, towards the end of the summer, I was applied for a patent through Raytheon with two other members of my team.
In my personal time I've currently been adding additional features for one of my three Android apps, Patterns, specifically a leaderboard system that I have implemented using Parse and my Raspberry Pi. In the past I've completed various other projects, mainly in Java, and in the future I hope to turn a few ideas I have into full fledged projects once time allows. I am also in the process of creating a personal wiki on my Raspberry Pi to help show off/archive my past projects.
