About Matthew Connelly

What I’ve Been Up To

In 2017, I left my job as a Frontend Developer to pursue a BS in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics, having come from a background in design with a BS in Communications.

Prior to this, I had begun working lower on the stack and had come to the realization that there was a lot that I wanted to understand about Software Development and computers overall. Feeling the time was right, I decided a full dive into Computer Science was necessary at the undergraduate level.

I am now a graduate of the College of Staten Island as of Fall 2020 and I’ve come away with a lot, having spent my time enrolled learning how to program using C++ primarily, and discovering a new appreciation for Mathematics, having done an independent study on Differential Geometry, and now exploring Graph Theory.

If you’ve read this far, thank you for taking the time, and feel free to drop me a line at matthew.b.connelly at gmail if you’re looking for a Software Engineer or just to say hi.
