Stephen Solis-Reyes is a student at the University of Western Ontario studying Computer Science; and just finished his Bachelor's degree. He will then be going back for a Master's in September. he is from London, Ontario, Canada, and this is his first year participating in the Master the Mainframe Contest. He thinks this contest is a really fun and interesting way to get introduced to the mainframe: before this contest, he had never worked with or really thought about mainframes at all. He is now seriously considering mainframe technology as a possible career path after he graduates. He enjoys learning new programming languages (Haskell, Scala, and Rust are his current favourites), and his favourite TV show is Halt and Catch Fire.
