Professor Slimick has been teaching at Pitt-Bradford since 1983. His courses include those across the entire spectrum in computer science, from Introduction to Computer Science through the upper-level courses, such as Survey of Data Communications and the capstone course in computer science. His favorite classes to teach are Data Structures, Software Maintenance, and Social and Ethical Implications of Computing.
John Slimick's hobby is, of all things, computer science. He compares his appearance to that of Dave Thomas, the founder of the Wendy's restaurant chain. His favorite movies are Living Dangerously, and the 1951 version of A Christmas Carol. He enjoys listening to classical music, especially Brahms, and he likes to read the works of Dante.
