About the speaker:
Before joining the Visualization Group, Camp spent 16 years designing and supporting software for a wide range of companies. In 2000, Camp taught C++ as an adjunct professor at Sierra College while pursuing a Masters degree in Computer Science at the University of Califonia, Davis (UCD).

He is currently working toward a PhD in Computer Science at UCD, and continues to teach. Duing the spring 2010 quarter, Camp taught a C class at UCD. Camp's interest in computing sparked when he got his first computer, a Commodore 64. "I took a Pascal class at my community college during my seventh grade to learn how to program it. Then I started writing games and small programs, which I really loved, so I decided then that this was what I was going to do."
