Kumusta! My name's JC, which stands for Joshua Caleb (not Jesus Christ). When I have downtime I like jamming with my ukulele/piano, unreservedly trying all kinds of new foods, hoarding free swag, and spontaneously hanging out with friends. I'm always down to chat about CS, learn something in your native language, or share my favorite places to eat good food!

Hello friends! I'm a third year and I decided to study computer science because of CS61B. Outside of school, I enjoy learning how to cook, going to the gym, and playing Hearthstone and League of Legends. Talk to me about memes, computer science, and anything else that may be on your mind!

Hey! Call me Alex. I enjoy introspecting, listening to people, consuming good stories, exploring, board games, and jamming on Spotify. My stretch goal is to have the ability to fly, but I might have to settle for some form of telekinesis or teleportation. You may find me wearing a straw hat. Also, I'm a nice person, I swear.

Hello! I'm a senior CS major and Stats minor from the distant town of Fremont, California. In my free time, I enjoy running, playing soccer, and most recently, rock climbing. I also love playing Melee, though I'm not very good. I've liked the majority of the CS classes that I've taken here, but 61B is definitely at the top of the list. I hope you enjoy it too!

Hi everyone! I'm a 4th year CS major/failed Chemistry major! In my spare time I like to fawn over my favorite data structures (just kidding) (not really), binge-watch Netflix, and eat good food, lots of it. I look forward to meeting all of you! :)

HI! I'm a 3rd year in BioE & EECS! I really, really enjoy pastel colors (mmm mint, lavender, coral) and Oolong (it's a luscious boba flavor spelled with quite a handsome permutation of English letters!). Come find me and we can develop these theories some more! (or we can talk about data structures too I guess hehe.)

I'm Sam, a 3rd year CS major who is excited to be teaching again! I've lab assisted, I've tutored, and most recently I TA'd 61BL this summer! I find it hard to say where I'm from since I've moved from China -> South Carolina -> NYC -> NYC -> NJ -> Upstate NY -> Upstate NY -> Upstate NY -> and now here in Berkeley! Things I enjoy include: trying new foods, taking nice hikes, any games - board or video, and cooking slightly above mediocre dishes for friends and family.

Hi y'all -- I'm Max and I'm a third year CS major from the Boston area. I am hopelessly dependent on coffee, trying new foods and am almost always listening to music (anything but country!). I haven't fully decided on an area of CS but as of right now I'm interested in security and networking. Outside of CS I'm very into dancing, and you can almost always catch me in Esh practicing for a dance team. If any of this interests you (or even if not, really), feel free to reach out to me! :)

Hey everyone. My name is Matt and I am a second year Mechanical Engineering → EECS major. I was born and raised in Maryland so shout out to all the East Coasters (but I think we can all admit the weather here is better). Anyways I like all kinds of weird stuff but some of my favorites are photography, math, any and all food, skateboarding, and of course memes. 61B is amazing so I can’t wait to work with and meet all of you!

Hi! I'm a second-year CS intended major from San Francisco. I took 61B last spring and lab assisted for 61BL in the summer. Aside from CS, I also enjoy listening to music, browsing memes, playing video games, hiking, and fencing.

Hi! I'm a second year CS major : ). In my spare time, I like to read a bit of manga, and I also play LoL every now and again when I feel the urge or something cool comes out. A couple of weeks ago, I started watching the show Shark Tank off of random YouTube clips, and I've been marathoning those since. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you and don't feel intimidated to ask me anything : )
