Welcome

You have found your way to the Chemeketa Community College web site of Darrel Karbginsky( karb-jin'-skī ), Computer Science and Computer Information Systems Instructor.  I no longer use this site as a link to the classroom.  All classroom activities can now be found using your Blackboard login. I do provide information concerning classes I teach or courses I am in the process of developing.  I also have information concerning our Computer Information Systems program at Chemeketa as well as other useful links and information.

We in the Computer Science/Computer Information Systems program are a small yet very dedicated group of computer science and information technology professionals. With the support and backing of our Professional Advisory Board, Department Director and our Department Chair, we are constantly updating curriculum to better offer to our students the best training possible.
