Hi! I’m Wilson Yeung and I’m in my last semester at Simon Fraser University where I am pursuing a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics and Computing Science. I joined the Review Board team because an opportunity was presented to the computing undergrads at SFU to join UCOSP. Despite having high expectations, I am still surprised at how fulfilling this experience is. Being enclosed in a controlled learning environment at university, I was excited to work on something that had real life applications and meaning to the outside world.
If you didn’t know, Review Board is a web-based tool to do code reviews. Due to the nature of the purpose of Review Board, it becomes an invaluable tool in any project. It tracks changes while giving you a bunch of tools to give critique or approval.
To conclude, the Review Board team is awesome. I wish there were more powerful words to explain how great the team is. Everyone is intelligent, hard-working, and has a good sense of humour. I would like to thank the UCOSP steering committee and the SFU liaison professor, Dr. Ted Kirkpatrick for making this possible for me. Extra kudos to our mentors; Mike Conley, Christian Hammond, and David Trowbridge, for being all-knowing, yet chose to guide us rather than spoon-feed us. None of this would be possible without their time and their commitment to UCOSP. I would highly recommend any comp sci undergrad to apply for UCOSP (ESPECIALLY Review Board) if they want to get a running start on their career in the computing science field.
