Hi, I'm David Dongwon Kim

I'm a student at the University of California, Berkeley.

I am an enthusiastic engineer studying Electrical Engineering and Computer Science (EECS) at the University of California, Berkeley. A copy of my resume along with my projects can be found in my Google Drive folder and my projects can also be found in my Github. Please feel free to contact me at dkim908@berkeley.edu

Projects

Point Trackr

An iOS app built with Swift in xCode that connects to Google's Firebase authentication and database system to keep track of a user's points (Like reward system such as Five Stars). User is able to make an account and login! All data is stored in Firebase.

TimeStamp

Worked with two other people on an application that maximizes the efficiency of scheduling meetings using multiple data structures (TreeMaps, Lists, LinkedLists, PriorityQueues) and algorithms. Users would enter their "busy" and/or "free" schedules for a certain time frame (designated by the event organizer) and the program would output the best time to hold a meeting/event where the most people can attend. For more information, visit my github and/or my Google Drive Folder.

BearMaps

Google Maps, but restricted to only the city of Berkeley. Built using Java and relies on A* algorithm to find the search routes. User is able to drag around the map, zoom in/out, search for locations, and get directions to locations anywhere on the map.

Checkmate

Built a tile/turn based RPG game where the player can move around using WASD keys. The goal is to avoid enemy characters and capture the enemy king. Coded in Java and included a simple GUI. Able to save/load the game and uses pseudorandomness to build maps based off different "seeds."

Voice Controlled Robotic Car

A robot car that drives based on voice commands. Can go straight, straight for a long distance, turn left, and turn right. Uses K-Clustering, PCA, SVD.

Capacitive and Resistive Touch Screens

In EE16A lab, my lab partner and I built simple resistive and capacitive touch screens to apply what we have learned. When a touch has been detected, a sound would be played through an amplifier.

Interests

"The moment you doubt whether you can fly, you cease for ever to be able to do it."

- Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie

Being a student and keeping up with my studies takes up the majority of my time. However, when I do find free time, I enjoy playing videogames with my friends, playing the viola (I played for 13 years!), and finding new places to eat.

I also actively try to learn new skills not related to programming, and am currently learning how to use Photoshop. Making and editing films is a big hobby of mine which I picked up during high school.
