Meet the Instructors!

My name is Noman Mohammad. Fourth year student at UBCO. Currently majoring in Math and Computer Science. Some of my hobbies include playing and watching sports, playing Fortnite, producing music, enjoying time with my family and I have a huge interest for medicine as well. Computer Science has always been a passion of mine after pondering in school how websites and video games are made. What I love most about coding is the freedom to create whatever your mind can think of. The aspect that the world revolves around growing technology is also a big reason why coding is so much fun.

My name is Karanmeet Khatra. Fourth Year student at UBCO. Currently doing a double major in Computer Science and Mathematics. Some of my hobbies include playing sports, video games, making youtube videos, and producing music. I got into Computer Science because I have always had an interest into technology and always wondered how to make software and programs for apps, phones, video games etc… I like that programming has a problem solving aspect behind it and you can literally make anything out of it. There is no boundaries to coding and that is what I love about it as there is always something new to learn.

Hi my name is Kyle Ranslam. I am a Fourth Year Computer Science student at UBCO. I enjoy skiing, scuba diving, video games, hiking and reading. My interest in programming was sparked by playing video games and after taking my first Computer Science course I knew that it was what I wanted to study. I love programming because there is an immense amount of creative freedom; you can create almost anything. Computers also are so embedded in society today that I believe developing an understanding for how they work is essential to being able to wield it as a tool effectively.

My name is Kevin Feddema, and I am a fourth year Computer Science major at the University of British Columbia Okanagan. My hobbies and interests include gaming, mechanical work, music, motorcycling, programming, etc. My studies in computer science stemmed from when I used to create servers and modifications for various games in my younger years as well as a personal interest for the inner workings of computational systems. I enjoy coding for the challenges it produces. Problem solving, troubleshooting, and diagnosing systems, all provide very engaging exercise for the mind.
