Hello. My name is Alex.

I am a student from Silicon Valley.

FIRST Robotics

I am programming lead and co-captain on FRC Team 100 (Wildhats from Woodside, CA).

On the team, I have

  • Improved software reliability, as measured by severe software-originating problems encountered at events, by creating strict quality guidelines and procedures

  • Reduced driver complexity, as measured by operator interactions per 30-second period, by switching to a goal-oriented input philosophy and automating robot movement

  • Increased development speed, as measured by duration from base code to a minimum viable product, by implementing a task-management system and creating cultural intiatives to encourage faster turn-around for code

  • Helped the community grow by sharing my knowledge through a blog that has helped over 1000 teams improve their skills
