The latest stuff:
My name is Marty Stepp. I worked as a computer science lecturer at the University of Washington from 2004-2013. I taught topics such as intro programming, web programming, software engineering, data structures and algorithms, Unix/Linux tools, and comparative programming languages.
I am the lead author of an introductory web programming textbook called Web Programming Step by Step, with Jessica Miller and Victoria Kirst from the University of Washington. I am also co-author of an introductory Java programming textbook with Stuart Reges titled Building Java Programs: A Back to Basics Approach. I am also first author of a C# textbook titled Computing Fundamentals with C#.
I wrote a web application to assist our CSE teaching assistants with grading student programs, called Grade-It!. I also wrote an online tool for practicing Java problems to accompany the Java textbook, called Practice-It!.
I got a Master's degree in computer science at the University of Arizona in 2003. I did research in geometric algorithms and security, taught 5 courses over four semesters, and was a teaching assistant nine times. My younger brother Mike Stepp is working on a Ph.D. in CS at the University of California, San Diego.
(Now that I no longer work at UW, this email address may stop working. Please see my personal web site for updated contact info.)
