Yeshiva College Computer Science

Summer 2021

Description

This special course was designed to turbo-charge the C.S. education of ambitious first and second year Y.C. C.S. majors. Students learnt aspects of either Data Science or Distributed Systems (depending on the team they chose / were assigned to) that they are normally are only introduced to in their 3rd or 4th year in the major, and applied them to build a real, working system. Guided by accomplished industry mentors, and using professional- grade tools and methodologies, students first learnt important prerequisite tools and systems, and then executed a large C.S. project in teams of four students and one mentor. The course culminated with each team preparing a video demonstration and public repository of their project.
