Professor Trina Gregory joined me and Rhea on the podcast recently. We talked about all things related to coding, VR, AR, mobile app development and even the history of the internet. If you have ever wanted to build an app, or learn more about the coding that goes into it, you should check out our latest Viterbi Voices podcast episode with Professor Trina Gregory.
We had a blast recording this conversation! Professor Gregory is a fountain of knowledge when it comes to the internet (and USC’s role in its development), coding languages, and mobile apps – not to mention just a very cool person.
