I'm a senior at the University of Maryland, College Park. I study computer science, mathematics, and business analytics. I just ended a position as a software engineer intern at Instagram, working configuration storage migration to support the development tooling of other engineers.
I love anything related to data - large-scale analytics, data engineering, distributed analysis, and applied machine learning.
Last school semester, I led and lectured a 1-credit class - CMSC389K: Full-stack Web Development w/ Node.js. I'm really excited to help the push for more progressive education through student-taught courses at the University of Maryland. I was also a teaching assistant for CMSC216 - Introduction to Computer Systems.
I helped organize Bitcamp 2018, UMD's flagship hackathon and the largest on the East Coast. The past year, I led the marketing and external branding efforts. As a fellow hacker, I'm always looking to expand my growing portfolio of hackathon projects!
For fun, I enjoy tinkering with my guitar and piano. I frequently find myself dreaming about surmounting the world's most difficult hikes. Check out my Instagram @allencoke for some of the landscape photography I do! Next on my bucket list is the Cactus to Clouds Hike!
