Westminster College alumnus Colin Dean '07 presented "Spinning Plates Atop Irons in the Fire: Keepin' It Real (Busy) after WC" to students and faculty in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science Oct. 21.

Dean discussed how post-graduation activities led to his current position at IBM Watson.  He emphasized involvement in open source projects as a way both to develop technical skills and to network with others in the field.

While at Westminster Dean was editor of the Holcad student newspaper, organized the mathematics and computer science department's computer gaming party and was a teaching assistant.
