I lead a double life.

On one hand, I am a graduate student, seeking my Masters' degree in Computer Science. My bachelors degree is a double major in Computer Science and Pure Mathematics. I enjoy all of the benefits of that, such as late-night coding sessions, regular exams, research papers, and all that fun stuff!

On the other hand, I am employed full-time as a Software Developer, reaping all of the benefits of that as well. Which includes, but is not limited to, busy days filled with meetings, design methodologies, and more coding.

All in all, I stay very busy with both of my lives, it is amazing that I even have time to visit this website.

comment How are operating systems compiled and booted the very first time?
You might be interested in the Linux From Scratch (linuxfromscratch.org/lfs) project. It is basically a step-by-step process to go about building and setting up your own Linux OS. You start with an existing OS, using the tools on the OS, you build a new set of tools. With the new set of tools, you then build a new set of tools again (this is called cross-compiling, building tools that are independent of the host OS).

comment What types of programming contest problems are there?
Thank you for that explanation, I put more focus on getting algorithms for Minimum Spanning Tree, Network Flow, Euclidean Path, and Convex Hull problems. I am a student at university. Unfortunetly the professors and student's don't take the programming contests as seriously as your university did. Most of the people that compete here only seem to compete once. And sometimes will simply drop out two days before the contest (as one team did this year), or decide not to go the morning of (as a team member did last year).
