Damian Finol xalqaro sayyohlar uchun begona emas. U bolaligida, ota-onasi uni Venesuela-Marakaybodan AQShga olib kelishdi, shuning uchun ular magistrlik izlanishlarida davom etishlari mumkin edi. 25 yildan ko'proq vaqt o'tgach, Damian AQShning Maharishi Universitetida kompyuter fanlari bo'yicha aspiranturasini olgan.
Damian’s love of traveling has led to work with the Wikimedia fondi, where he helps establish Wikimedia chapters on every continent to bring “bepul ma'lumot” worldwide—a major accomplishment of which he is very proud. He is one of only 8-10 international Wikimedia Chapter Committee members with this distinction.
Misol uchun, 2006 da, Damian Garvard universitetida Wikimania'da taqdimot o'tkazdi Vikipediya in Native South American tribes in northwestern Venezuela. Then, in 2008, in the historic Library in Alexandria, Egypt, Damian lectured on, “Social attitudes of Latin Americans toward Spanish Wikipedia.” This 25-minute lecture can be viewed at the movie archive of the Library.
Jamg'arma uni turli mamlakatlarga bepul bilimlarni saqlab qolish va tarqatish uchun bo'limlarni tashkil qilish uchun yuboradi. Keyingi oyda u MUMda bahorgi tanaffus paytida Germaniyaga ketadi.
Maracaibo Universitetida informatika bo'yicha muhandis Rafael Belloso Chacin bo'lib ishlayotgan Damian asosan JSP / Servletlarni yaratdi, keyin Unix / Linux tizimiga o'tdi. Bu AT xavfsizligiga aylandi, u erda Venesuelaning eng yirik banklaridan ikkitasida ishladi. U ko'plab loyihalarni, jumladan, EMV chip texnologiyasini kredit / debet kartalari va PCI-DSS muvofiqligi (VISA / MasterCard talablariga muvofiq) xavfsizligini boshqarish uchun mas'ul edi.
2008-2011 dan Damian SQL / Ma'lumotlar bazalarini, Project Management, Systems, IT Security va Linux ni o'rgatdi. Kompyuter fanlari dotsenti Karakasdagi Nueva Esparta Universitetida.
MUM da ta'lim
5-6 yil Software Engineering tomonidan ishlab chiqilganidan so'ng, Damian o'zining ilmiy tayyorgarligini magistr darajasiga ko'tarishga qaror qildi. Bir nechta do'stlar MUMda o'zlarining tajribalari haqida shunchaki gapirishdi va ba'zi tadqiqotlardan so'ng u o'quv dasturi (7-8 oylik kurslar, bir oylik to'liq kurs bo'yicha o'qiyotgan, keyin AQSh kompaniyasida ikki yillik pullik malakali amaliy mashg'ulotlar olib borishga qaror qildi) ) eng qiziqarlisi edi. Shuningdek, u dastur o'zining shaxsiy rivojlanishini amaliyot orqali qo'llab-quvvatlaydi Transcendental Meditation® dasturi.
According to Damian, “MSCS courses at MUM are incredibly up-to-date. Classes in software development, programming practices, etc., teach the latest practical skills and algorithms, so you’re ready for the current job field.”
Even though Damian is accustomed to a much warmer Venezuelan climate, the few months of cold Fairfield, Iowa weather don’t bother him. “The human warmth among students, Computer Science administrators, and the caring, experienced faculty at MUM is very comforting.”
“People on campus and in the community are very friendly to the diverse student body. There are lots of activities in the Latino clubs, and a welcoming Catholic Church nearby. Universitetda faqat bir necha kundan keyin siz ikkinchi uyingizga universitetni chaqirishga kirishingiz mumkin,” adds Damian.
MUMga kelishdan oldin noto'g'ri tushunchalar
“My main misconception when I heard and read about MUM was the Transcendental Meditation Movement behind it, and how it sounded like a religious movement. This of course wasn’t the case. Transandantal Meditatsiya usuli hech qanday din bilan bog'liq emas va hayotning barcha sohalarida foydani hujjatlashtiruvchi 600-dan ortiq ilmiy tadqiqotlar bilan qo'llab-quvvatlanadi.. It’s a technique that helps the mind like yoga helps the body. So learning about it, and experiencing what it was all about showed me that TM is a universal technique that improves precision and clarity of thinking, and creativity, which make algorithms easier to design.”
“The MUM community is very multicultural. Students come from many different backgrounds, cultures and religions: from Arabs, to Indians, Nepalese, Ethiopians, Chinese, and of course Latinos. The University has a big Christian community (Catholic, Protestant), and other religions too (Muslim, Hindu, etc.). MUM encourages students to observe religious holidays and fosters students to express their culture and religion freely. There’s no incompatibility between the Transcendental Meditation Movement and religion or culture.”
Damian katta deb o'ylaydi va unga javob beradigan har bir kishi uning yaxshi fazilati, muvozanatli shaxsiyati, professional qobiliyati, o'z-o'zini ishonch va muvaffaqiyatga undashdan ta'sirlangan. U keyingi Google yoki Facebookni yaratishda yordam berishni xohlaydi va o'z IT-kompaniyasini ishga tushirishni rejalashtirmoqda. Iyun oyida kampus kursini tugatgan Damian Sietlda oila yaqinida stajirovka qilishni rejalashtirib, qulay, xavfsiz va baxtli hayot kechirishni rejalashtirgan.
Dastur mutaxassislari uchun maslahatlar
“My advice is to go for it. Don’t be afraid to see the world and experience life. Coming to MUM has been a tremendously positive experience—one that I’m sure I’ll remember fondly for many decades. It’s a fun place to study and to grow.”
"The University isn’t just here to teach about Computer Science, but also to help you grow as a person. That’s not something that is seen in other universities. In a regular university, knowledge is taught without thinking how the body and mind process it. At MUM there’s also a focus on how development of mind and body makes that knowledge useful and more insightful. It truly is a different (and positive) way of learning.”
