The guy who runs Stanford’s undergraduate computer science department
Mehran Sahami is the associate chairman of undergraduate education. What does that mean? He runs probably the most important computer science undergraduate department in the world. This is the department that gave birth to Google, after all (and a bunch of other companies). This is a once-in-a-lifetime chance for me to sit down and learn about the latest in computer education trends and what’s happening inside Stanford University’s computer science department.
