My name is Zack Robinson. I write software (and occasionally words) to help people accomplish their goals, avoid tedium, and learn something new about the world we inhabit and the systems we use. I have a particular interest in human-computer interaction, embedded systems, efficient infrastructure, and cross-disciplinary integration.
I’m studying for a BA in Computer Science, with minors in Engineering and English Literature, at Swarthmore College. I’m also one of the current co-presidents of the Swarthmore College Computer Society, a 32-year-old chartered student organization with about 40 members. I’m spending this summer as a software engineer intern at Arcesium.
The first code I ever wrote was on my TI-84 graphing calculator in middle school algebra class. Since then, I’ve mostly moved on to slightly more powerful technologies. I’ve completed significant projects with Java, Typescript, HTML/CSS/JS, Kotlin, Python, and OCaml.
I grew up in the city of Portland, Oregon. I used to be a student on FIRST® Robotics Competition Team 1540, and I’m still involved in the program through volunteering as a Control System Advisor and contributions to competition-specific libraries.
