Since 2006 Sven Aas has worked at Mount Holyoke College, where he is responsible for the development and support of a wide variety of web systems and solutions. He has 18 years of professional computer experience in web and application development, including positions at Rare Medium and HBO. He has a master’s in computer science from NYU, and a bachelor’s in astronomy from UMass Amherst.
I have degrees in astronomy and computer science. Something I love about programming in general–and web work in particular–is the steady change that keeps it from getting boring. I don’t know what tools I’ll be using five years from now, and I never stop learning.
I’ve worked with great people in interesting jobs at start-ups and in industry but the mission of higher education is very important to me, and I’m proud to use my skills to support institutions that encourage the growth of both people and knowledge.
