Teaching Assistant: Tony Jiang
My name is Tony Jiang and I am currently attending Saratoga High School, graduating in 2020. I learned Java from online tutorials, books, and practice problems. I have ample knowledge of the basic concepts of java such as variables, objects, syntax, loops, etc., and some more advanced java concepts such as data structures and algorithms. I really enjoy doing coding because it introduces a new way of thinking about problems.
