Kevin Yeh

I am a student and developer from New York City

studying Computer Science at the University of Texas at Austin.

"How do I love thee? Let me count the ways,

that I may dissect thy resume."


I am a New York native, Austin developer, and Stuyvesant H.S. Alumnus studying at the University of Texas at Austin. I've recently worked for Amazon AWS on their distributed RDS and DynamoDB technologies, and for local Austin company Blastro Networks, developing and orchestrating a simultaneous release of their three flagship Android apps.

I'm an Android developer with hacker experience using Java, Node.js, PostgreSQL, Spark Cores, and Myo Armbands to create exciting tools. My team recently placed third at HackTX 2014 for our gesture-controlled LiteTurns hack. I've worked at the systems level in C, done Graphics and Physical Simulation work and research in C++ and OpenGL, and worked with an assortment of scripting and web development tools in Python, Perl, Ruby, and Rails.

If you'd like to gossip with me about Android development, Computer vision and graphics, or that one movie where Audrey Hepburn plays a blind woman, contact me at kevinyeah@utexas.edu.

"Ever notice an odd trend when watching hackathon closing ceremonies? Hardware hacks dominate the domain.
With four of the top five hacks at BoilerMake ‘14 involving a heavy dosage of physical hardware, along with the majority of the HackTX top 10 winners, it seems more and more people are looking at mobile and wearables as the next pervasive technology of the future -- finding ways to take the experience out of the screen and have users interact with the physical world around them. This sentiment was only proven further with this year’s available hardware listing for HackTX: Arduinos, Spark Cores, Leap Motions, Samsung wearables, Myos..." Read more
