aarphacker's home page

Welcome! Starting this summer, 2022, I will be making major changes to this web page and my blog. Check back in mid-june for more information.

SERC DAU AI Talk information can be found here.

For students involved with the Stevens High School program you can find the slides for the sessions here . You can download the lab manuals below.

This site supports the diverse interest of an aging hacker, aka Gregg Vesonder. It originally was hosted on but AARP forced me to shut it down. I am revitalizing it and it especially supports activities of summer 2020. I will post workshops I am giving and you are welcome to browse through my old materials. My blogs have been inactive for several years and I hope to revive them this Fall. I have a real back log of projects that I can post. Hope you revisit soon. Stay Healthy!


More is coming beginning with some materials for running a STEM course. If you are interested in my blogs, the oldest for past and present students (and anyone else), enter here and the newest on older hacker issues, but hopefully interesting to all ages, enter here. I also maintain a site that provides the materials for most of the computer science courses I have taught here.

The vt52 depicted in the left hand corner got me through graduate school at the Learning Research and Development Center (LRDC) at the University of Pittsburgh. I copied the picture from wikipedia. I spent many hours on that device over my graduate career.
