I remember the night before the first day of my internship, I hardly got any sleep. It was a mixture of excitement and feeling like I was in way over my head. Now looking back, I feel so much more confident in my ability to have a successful and rewarding career in technology, and I have to... read more »

The dominate culture in the Bay Area is tech. Unless you can live under a rock, the tech culture is omnipresent and inescapable. As a quick day-in-the-life, I head out around 8am and walk towards my shuttle stop. I pass by startup offices on Castro Street, the heart of downtown Mountain View where... read more »

I’m the first of the DTech interns to finish my internship this summer.  As I write this blog, I’m sitting on a plane on the way to Sydney, Australia to study abroad this upcoming school semester.  I’m excited for new adventures, but also starting to get the feeling of missing out on being at work... read more »

Hi! So those of my fellow developers out there might get a kick out of my camelCase title (I know I made myself laugh) and some of my fellow iOS developers out there might even enjoy my play on an optional type (Swift > Obj-c)….but I promise I’m going to stop trying to clever now.

When my manager, Karl, pitched Presto, Facebook’s open source distributed SQL query engine, as the upcoming intern project, I think all three of us analytics interns (Kathy, also a DTech Scholar, Breck, a Vanderbilt senior, and myself) were ready for the challenge.

Have you ever wondered where that sports team onesie you wear on Christmas morning came from?

Who would have thought that my first encounter with the working world would be 3,000 miles away from home? With only 17 years of experience growing up in suburban New Jersey and one year of growing physically, mentally, spiritually, and socially at Duke University, I somehow managed to end up at a... read more »
