Welcome to the online portfolio of Dackral Scott Phillips
I am a recent Master's graduate from Auburn University in the area of

in an innovative and progressive company on the cutting edge of technology that will utilize
and challenge my skills in computer science and intelligent and interactive systems.
I graduated Magna Cum Laude with a Masters in Computer Science and Software Engineering from
Auburn University in August 2002. I have specialization in Intelligent and Interactive Systems.
I am knowledgeable in more than a dozen programming languages, several web scripting languages, as
well as many database systems. I also have some experience with software processes, metrics, and
My graduate study has included work on pre-hypertext processing (PHP) web design, linux networking,

During my graduate study, I have been employed for two semesters as a graduate teacher for Auburn
University as a recitation instructor for a data structures and algorithms course using the Java
language (COMP 2210). I have also served as a webmaster for the department of Computer Science
and Software Engineering for three semesters, and have been a programmer/webmaster for the
Department of Entomology and Plant Pathology for five semesters.
I am currently employed by Alpine Advertising in Oneonta, where I am a graphics artist/digital video editor. I also work part time as an coputer science instructor at Wallace State Community College in Hanceville. In my spare time I also do website design and computer work for friends, relatives, and acquaintances.
