😎 Introduction

I'm a Master student major in Computer Science at New York University. I graduated from Tsinghua University in 2017. For some people, coding is just a work to maintain living; however for me, I wish my insignificant and trivial work can help more people, and make this world different.

🧐 Interest

My personal interest is in Web Development, Database Systems, Web Search Engine, and DevOps. I'm fluent in Front-End developement with jQuery & React, and Back-End developement with Python, MySQL and web frameworks including Django and Flask. I worked at Amazon Devices SCM group at Beijing, mainly use Python, Flask, and MySQL to develop internal systems, during which I've gain knowledge and experience in web development & DevOps. Besides, I'm currently working with my friends on a Software-as-a-Service project.

For academic experience, I'm the teaching assistant of Principles of Database System at NYU (which I think might be the heaviest workload course at NYU Tandon...), and currently I'm focusing on the course Web Search Engines (which is said to be the heaviest workload course at NYU Tandon by other students...), and have finished projects including Python web crawler, C++ inverted index building and query execution, etc. I'm now working on a project based on the inverted index, which focus on the query auto-completion & auto-correcting.

During my Cloud Computing course, I've read Jeff Dean's papers (Google File System, BigTable, MapReduce). I'm also currently reading the Google SRE book. My personal experience strongly indicates me that the storage and query of data, the optimization of web response & render, the relationship between "Engineering" & "Toil", can be an eternal topic.
