That sounds about the time I was in the series as well.  Jeremy something or
other was the 221 instructor - we may have been in the same class.  I do
recall giving him jazz for no reason.  I certainly know your name, just was
never sure if it was from the CSE program or one of those names from around
the OSU IT community.

I remember the series being a pilot, and vaguely recall a choice of Modula
(I think there was one section offered) or C++, with the C++ version being
strongly encouraged.  I had no idea Resolve had been around for so long.  I
stand corrected that it was new at the time.
