Mike Beam is a senior at the University of Texas at Austin studying physics and astronomy. He works in a physics lab on campus heading up one of the research projects, which has required the creation of a software-based control that was developed in C and LabVIEW on Linux. Beam’s programming knowledge also includes Perl, Java and Cocoa/Objective-C.
