Alumnus, Department of Computer Science
(Originally published on 10 December 2010 in Your Official U of R blog)
I started at the U of R in fall of 1974. Although I was not initially enrolled in computer science, I took CS200 in the 75W semester. This class was an introduction to computer programming. Students were required to write some short assembler programs and then a number of Fortran programs. The programs were all run on the XEROX Sigma-9 computer.
