Patsawee "Louis" Maliyam
Who am I?
My name is Patsawee Maliyam. I would prefer to be called "Louis." I am originally from Thailand, and this is my second year at UW majoring in Computer Science and (potentially ツ) Dance. Computer Science provides me with tools to create something beautiful like this website ;) and expands my horizons while Dance fulfills my soul.
I took CSE154 during Autumn 2018, and this will be my first time TAing. So excited! This 10-week course is packed with a strong foundation for web development. I found that it's easy for me to learn new web-developing skills after taking this class. CSE154 is one of my favorite classes at the UW because it required me to analyze and synthesize course materials in order to work as a full stack developer. So, I am very excited to apply what I gained from this class to my internship with Indeed this upcoming summer. Feel free to reach out to me if you have any questions with the course content, internship application process, and if you want to talk about anything.
This Is What I Like
Performing Arts (e.g., Singing and Dancing)
Birds (fun fact: I'm really really scared of birds)
Classes I'm taking (Spring 2019)

*More or less. Note that, these are my tips. It might work for your learning or it might not.
- Come prepared. Reading materials can give you a taste of what you should expect when learning new things.
- Take a good rest before classes. Fresh brain makes the learning more effective!
- Meet new friends. Your neighbor might have those amazing ideas to enrich your web development!
- Make sure you catch up everything (in case you miss lecture(s) or don't understand something). The class is structured for you to synthesize every material.
- Good time to apply what you learn in lectures.
- Really help you understand the implementation.
- Practice exercises provided in sections & labs' slides
- Don't afraid to ask your instructor or TA when you have any questions. It could be during or after class.
- Again, good time to make friends!
- Work on what you are passionate about
- Want to design something cool on your website? Google is your best friend. WPL and any TAs are welcome to answer your questions and/or lead you to right resources.
- Web development requires a lot of self-learning, so time commitment is another thing you would like to consider.
- Read specs as soon as it comes out, so you can plan ahead.
- Even if you are not implementing it, thinking about how you could apply materials learned in class to the homework would efficiently help with the implementing plan.
- Code quality is very important. Make sure your code is well-developed and work to follow everything listed on the specs.
- WPL and every TA are good resources to help you with the homework.
- Practice would definitely help!
- When taking practice exams, look for the pattern of the exams. When you see the pattern, you might know what to focus on.
- Additionally, seeing pattern will help you prepare with your "weakest" topic and also strengthen your learning on every topic.
- Think as if you are the one who creates exams: how would you test your students on each topic?
