Programming Included

Charles H. Chen

M.S. in Computer Science (WIP)

About Me

Charles received his Bachelor of Science in Computer Science at the age of 18 at the University of California San Diego. He is now a first year master's student at UCSD.

He works in the UCSD Design Lab, working under Philip Guo in designing HCI systems to better aid in CS education.
In the past, Charles has also worked under the San Diego Super Computer Center with Beth Simon and Illkay Altintas in developing the Big Data Course on Coursera under UCSD. He has also worked alongside the San Diego School District in improving the implementation of the AP Computer Science curriculum, working closely with teachers and faculty in understanding student needs and how they can be better addressed through online technologies.

He has personally worked with non-profit and profit organizations in website design, event portfolios, system directories, and patent arduino hardware/software design.

His interests are anything that invovles creativity. Concept art design, music composing, theoretical math, machine learning, and game programming all fall into this realm. For more hobby oriented discussion, please refer to the Programming Included Blog.


Charles occasionally livestreams his own works in both programming for hobby related works and his non-programming related interests. The archives can be found under Youtube channel ProgrammingIncluded and SKKMelody respectfully.
