Introducing the MarkUs Team – Fall 2011

without comments

We are 5 students working on MarkUs – as part of UCOSP – this fall. Who are we?

Alex Krassikov

Alex is a forth year Computer Science student at UofT. He is the vice president of the Computer Science Student Union at UofT, creating ample opportunities for students to socialize and have fun while making valuable connections for the future. Alex has most of his experience in Java, C, and Python, but in the past has dabbled in languages such as Scheme. He occasionally uses his coding skills to make little apps that help him make accurate decisions in his favourite video games or help his fellow neighbours. Besides coding, Alex enjoys recreational activities which include but not limited to: ultimate Frisbee, playing board games, baking cakes and muffins, as well as staring at cute pictures of cats.







Luke Kysow


Luke is a fourth year Computer Science student at UBC. He has worked for UBC on their website UBC Events, for SAP in their Innovation Center and recently for EA on their FIFA site. Luke has worked in Ruby, PHP, Java, C, a little Perl and soon to be added Erlang, Haskell and Prolog! He has also done freelance work on the side, creating websites, and is in the midst of starting a company with a friend. When he’s not on the computer, Luke is rock climbing, bouldering, skiing and playing video games… okay that last one is on the computer too.








Razvan Vlaicu

RazvanRazvan is a fourth year computer science student at UW. He has worked all of his off terms while in school for a startup company in Waterloo called Aeryon labs doing software development for their product. Razvan has spent most of his development experience in C, C++, and Java. In his spare time he enjoys bicycling, running, and exploring the art of video game design.







Erik Traikov

ErikErik is a fourth year computer science student at UW. As a co-op student, some of my work terms have included doing SQL & PL/SQL scripting, teaching scheme and c/c++ to first and second year students at the university, and doing iPhone development in objective-c. In my spare time, I like to play dungeons and dragons as well as Magic: the Gathering. In fact, I was invited to nationals in august, and I will be attending a tournament this weekend (sept 17) in Montreal.








Severin Gehwolf

SeverinSeverin is a fourth year Computer Science student at University of Toronto who spent most of the last 16 months hacking on Eclipse plug-ins. In particular, Fedora Packager for Eclipse and Eclipse Linux Tools. Severin’s programming experience ranges from Perl hacking on XIMS, Ruby and Ruby on Rails to Java and Eclipse Plug-ins with some occasional forays into the C/C++ programming world. Severin studied business in Austria, has done Apache httpd web server administration, is now maintainer of some Fedora packages and currently works for Red Hat. He is mostly interested in operating systems, networking, Web programming and computer systems in general. He enjoys to hack on MarkUs in his spare time and will have a closer look at MarkUs’ performance this term. In his spare time he enjoys canoeing, skiing, running, reading, good food and the occasional beer as well as describing himself in the third person 😉

I look forward to meeting you at the code sprint!
