Hi there 👋

My name is Ethan and I'm currently studying Computer Science at UC Berkeley.

I love tinkering around and experimenting with code to solve interesting and challenging problems.

One area I'm especially passionate about is education - Having faced the difficulties of learning and succeeding in a CS course at Berkeley, Ethan has strived to help improve the CS environment at Berkeley especially for those who have had no experience programming before as a Computer Science Mentor and Course Tutor for CS 61A. In the past, I've also created educational tools like PythonBuddy which allows for users to immedietely start programming with live Python syntax checking and execution online.

Outside of education, I'm interested in cybersecurity and building useful and robust software. For example, at GitHub currently, I've designed and implemented a new feature that many customers are asking for called "Composite Actions". You can see some of my work here: https://github.com/actions/runner/commits?author=ethanchewy. As part of the BLUES Lab, I'm also working on creating an offline smart speaker with built-in privacy controls.

He has also been a DuckDuckGo Community Mentor, Community TA for 6.00.1x Python MIT edX Course, and Teen Leader at Cradles to Crayons. He also founded and led the Wellesley CreateAthon and WHS Cyberpatriot team.

While I've worked with a handful of languages and frameworks, I've most recently worked extensively with C#, Python, Go, and JavaScript as well as Flask and Ruby on Rails. My favorite language as of now is Python since it has the lowest barrier of entry for programming something awesome (ex: my cousin who is in the 2nd grade really loves Python)!
