Did you go to the University of Washington or somewhere else?
No, I went to schools in the Midwest (of comparable size).
What were you favorite computer science classes and why?
For me, enjoyment of specific courses was highly dependent on the quality of the professor, and the lack of professor's attachment to giving busy work. My favorite general topics in CS were: Theory of Computation, Cryptography, Databases, and all of the Compiler/Programming Languages courses.
