Desai 1 Shivam Desai Timothy Taylor Composition and Rhetoric April 13, 2017 Research Paper: Software Engineering When I was a kid in the spy movies there was always a geek who had the greatest abili- ties to do anything with a simple computer.

Machines are something that reduces human effort nowadays the most common machine that we encounter ev- eryday are computers which is based on electronic components.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
