About Louie

My name is Louie Bertoncin, and I am a junior majoring in Computer Science at the Missouri University of Science and Technology in Rolla, Missouri. I love developing for the mobile platform and tackling difficult tasks. Some of my hobbies include playing Ultimate, running, and coding. I'm normally involved in some sort of programming project, likely throwing myself into something I've never tried before. I live life in search of new challenges in order to improve myself and keep boredom at bay.

Experience

My experience in the field of Computer Science consists of about four years of mostly independent research. Until I arrived at Missouri S&T, found it difficult to acquire a formal education in this incredible field, so I have spent a great deal of time teaching myself the ins and outs of programming. Some of the products this education has enabled me to do include:

  • FRC Scout

    The renowned iPad app for scouting FIRST Robotics matches

    Three consecutive annual releases of FRC Scout, a renowned app used by the FIRST Robotics community to gather and share information at competitions on iPads, with one of these releases receiving the honor of being featured at Apple's 2014 World Wide Developer Conference.

  • Cerner Android App

    Cerner's first widely available public Android app

    During an internship in the summer of 2015, I built an Android app from scratch into version 1.0. This was to be Cerner's first big Android application and was in the final stages of development when my internship ended. Not sure how much else I'm cleared to disclose.

  • ChapterBuilder

    A fantastic Greek recruitment product goes mobile

    Over the course of about five weeks in early 2015, I developed an iOS app for ChapterBuilder to be more available to upwards of a thousand clients.

  • Junior Robotics League

    Impacted hundreds of young kids' lives through STEM

    For three years in a row, I helped put together the Junior Robotics League by designing a game and an efficient means of scoring the game on iPads for a totally electronic scorekeeping system.

Education

I first started learning how to program through FIRST Robotics while attending Lee's Summit High School. My senior year there, I participated in Cerner's school work program for two hours of every school day, working in conjunction with a team of professional engineers. I then moved on to the Missouri University of Science and Technology to major in Computer Science, where I can claim my current education status is. I am majoring in Computer Science and have taken several classes in C++ (some of the most significant ones being Data Structures, Algorithms, and Databases). I am a junior at S&T (in case you didn't catch that from the top). I consider myself confidently fluent in Swift, Objective-C, Java, C++, Python, SQL, and HTML/CSS.
