Seiya Kawashima graduated from Loyola’s MS program in software engineering in 2009 and is now an application programmer at the University of Chicago. In 2011, he was a finalist in the City of Chicago’s Apps 4 Metro Chicago programming contest.
Seiya is scheduled to speak at the Kansas City Developer Conference 2013 held from May 2 to 4. In his presentation, entitled Why not reinvent the wheel or your knowledge is limited, he will discuss the value of “reinventing the wheel” for expanding one’s knowledge through a deep understanding of successful existing solutions.
This topic is highly relevant not only to the practicing professional but also the computer science/software engineering educator, and we are grateful to Seiya for sharing his insights with the community.
