Notes:

  • The date 2007-01-17 : Computer Science PhD Major on my grad transcript is very strange. I didn't even get admitted to the program until February 2007. I then accepted in March, but deferred admission and didn't start the program until fall 2008, as the rest of the transcript indicates.
  • The "629" courses I took were all graduate paper-reading seminars. Spring 2010 was "Language-Based Approaches to Security" with Amal Ahmed. Fall 2010 was "Integrating Static and Dynamic Typing", also with Amal. Fall 2011 was "Domain-Specific Languages for High-Performance Computing" with Ryan Newton.
  • The most valuable courses I took in grad school were 523 (compilers, taught by Kent Dybvig), 521 (aka "Intro to Dan", taught by Dan Friedman), 522 (intro to type systems, taught by Amal), and the aforementioned three seminar courses. Despite having an undergrad CS degree and having worked in industry for several years before grad school, I didn't feel like a real programmer until I took Kent's compilers class as a grad student and wrote a compiler. Likewise, I didn't feel like a real PL researcher until I took Amal's type systems course and the two follow-up seminars.
  • The various "courses" numbered 790, 890, and 901 weren't really courses; they were just what one "enrolled" in while one was doing research.
  • Math 590 was actually a cross-listed cogsci course.
  • The sole AI course I took was in 2009, and back then, they were still telling us that neural networks didn't work. hah. I'm currently taking the Coursera machine learning course to fill in the gaps.
  • I defended my dissertation in September 2014, but I didn't turn it in until September 2015. (I don't know why my transcript has 2014-08-11 as the defense date; it was actually September 8, 2014.) I was required to register for "classes" during that whole year-long interval, which actually spanned parts of three semesters (fall 2014, spring 2015, and fall 2015). So that's what those three semesters on the transcript represent, even though I was actually working full-time at my job in California and not physically present on campus for any of them.
  • I still haven't taken a single computer architecture course, ever. (And I worked at Intel!) And I still haven't taken a single distributed systems course, even though my dissertation had "Distributed" in the title and I just got hired as distributed systems faculty. All I can say is that "programming languages" is a misnomer, and it should really be "abstractions for computing" or something like that.

This seems very interesting! I came here from your article, I am an undergrad myself (soon start sophomore year) and look forward to grad school.
