Speaker - Angus Atkinson
Angus (he/him) is a computer science student at the Australian National University in Canberra. Currently he is learning about computer systems, (micro)architectures, high performance computing, cyber security, AI, and everything in between. Angus was first introduced to programming by a friend at the age of 11, and has been hacking away and breaking things ever since. Although he's often been known to list his most recently learned programming language as his favourite, Angus considers himself to be a true Pythonista at heart. When he's not programming, Angus enjoys waging virtual war against his friends (through videogames), playing adult make-believe (Dungeons & Dragons), practicing his primal hand-eye coordination instincts (in Tennis), and sparring with big bamboo swords (only when wearing full Kendo armour, of course).
