Intro

Dear Reader,

My name is Connor Monson. Welcome to my personal website. I graduated with honors from UC, Santa Cruz in June 2019 with a B.S. in Computer Science and a minor in Technology and Information Management.

Some areas of study include working with data structures, algorithms, software engineering, operating systems, and mobile development. I have exposure working with virtualization technologies such as VirtualBox for operating systems and intro to networking classes.

Additionally, I have class and project experience with developing mobile/web applications, working in Unix/Linux environments, and working with databases. I have exposure programming with C, Java, Python, Javascript and SQL, but I am wanting and willing to learn other coding languages. Most recently, I worked on an android application for my Senior Design Project at UCSC. This project continued for two quarters (22 weeks) and gave me experience with agile methodologies and software development in a team/client setting.

I am passionate about software, technology, and human interaction. As a recent graduate, I am eager for an opportunity to learn about and contribute to an amazing company. I am extremely excited and motivated to jump start my career. I am currently seeking a full time position! Thank you for taking the time to visit my website and learn more about me.

Sincerely,

Connor J. Monson
