After giving out the awards, Dr. Crouch awarded the audience with a great presentation and some programming commandments. Dr. Crouch gave us a test to see if one was to become a programmer. It was not an exam but to see if your interest was high in programming. The test was an algorithm that took you to one solution. Dr. Crouch started by asking you for a number from a certain range. Then we ended up with an alphabetic character that one would select to give the name of the animal that one was thinking about. The answer in everyone’s mind was an elephant.

Dr. Crouch’s presentation of his algorithm was not magic. The purpose was to show your programming’s purpose which was creating an algorithm to reach a certain output or solution. His presentation was interesting and may make one wonder what knowledge you need to make these algorithms.

Dr. Crouch also mentioned to everyone to do something that you love doing. Not everyone loves to program. He also mentioned that fewer programmers in the market mean more money to those that love programming.
