Hi! I'm Alec Fielding, I'm studying Computer Science at California State University Long Beach so that one day I can become a software engineer!
Currently, my most commonly used high level languages are Java, C++, and Python. I am also familiar with the React and Django Frameworks and I am starting to learn React Native. My goal is to become a full-stack software engineer by the time I earn my degree and hopefully concentrate on gaining experience with machine learning and A.I. I've learned alot in my study and I've spent plenty of time learning through tutorials and online resources such as Code Academy, Udacity, and Lynda.com. Aside from school and pursuing my career, I love camping, cooking, traveling, and spending time with my friends and my dog Dean. I am always adding more projects to my personal queue wether that project be about coding, wood working, or cars, I'll add some images to the gallery... once the gallery is built anyways.. I'm pretty picky about my website, and I tend to be preoccupied by other projects.

Senior project involving the implementation of machine learning to create an autonomous drone capable of replacing underground sprinkler systems.
