Student handbook for the ETC class that started August 28 2023.
Bryan has had a lifelong desire to know how things work. He spent his formative years honing his skills by taking apart his parent's appliances and putting them back together well enough to go undiscovered - most of the time. Later computers became his obsession. As a teenager he spent hours writing and playing games on his TI 99/4A home computer. He pursued his interest in computers and technology at the University of Pittsburgh where he received a Bachelors of Science in Computer Science. After graduation he went to work at the Software Engineering Institute at Carnegie Mellon developing this new fangled thing called a web site. A few months later he joined the fledgling Informedia Digital Video Library project as a programmer. He was with the project for 15 years and his responsibilities evolved into building things like terabyte scale storage arrays (circa 1999), automated video capture systems, personal experience recording devices, and digital surveillance systems. Today he continues to develop Digital Video Library systems at the Entertainment Technology Center.
