Hardware Security and C++
Add to Google Calendar
After this talk, you will know more about the research interests and teaching philosophy of Matthew Hicks than you ever wanted to know. I will start by telling you about some of my current research projects in hardware security that I was able to convince daring undergraduates to undertake. Then, I will teach you something totally awesome about C++, but at the undergraduate level, in approximately 15 minutes. I will follow this with a monologue on my views on teaching: how students really love learning, but teachers get in the way. As a bonus, much like at the end of a real class, you get to rate me—chili peppers appreciated.
