Up next for meeting our speakers we have, Rick Wightman. Old enough to remember the last time the Leafs won the Stanley Cup, this AncientOne teaches Computer Science and other important things at UNB. Among his specialties are web development, mobile and the first-year experience, taught with a tinge of practical and a flair for forestry.

With 16 years @ 6 courses/year @ 36 hours/course under his belt, Rick is quite qualified to make fool of himself in public.

Rick, if you were a programming language or technology, which one would you be and why?

C. If you think you know what you’re doing, it’s quite happy to let you, until it seg faults.

What do you like best about Maritime DevCon?

I get to learn from former students in an environment where I don’t feel too stupid.

Why do you feel your session, Report from the Hill, would bring value to Maritime DevCon attendees?

UNB FCS produces a large portion of the workforce for the Maritimes, including co-op students in addition to it’s graduates. Understanding what students are being equipped with is important to knowing what organizations can hope to gain from these individuals.

What is the key take away attendees will get from your session Report from the Hill?

Students in the Maritimes are prepared to start contributing to your organizations both in ways you’re thinking of, but also in new ways you maybe hadn’t thought of.

Thanks for joining us to present Rick!
