PG Podcast - Episode 8 - Amy Chen on being a CS student and software engineer
July 2016 (perspective of an assistant professor)
Amy Chen (@theamydance) is about to graduate soon with a computer science degree from Rutgers University and is currently interning at Behance, an NYC startup acquired by Adobe. I've never met Amy in real life, but since I've been a fan of what she writes on Twitter about topics such as engineering work culture, I reached out to her about being interviewed for this podcast.
In this PG Podcast (which is actually the first time we've ever spoken!), we cover a wide range of topics related to being a computer science student in college, transitioning to the working world as a new software engineer, positive and negative workplace cultures, and advice for CS students who want to make the most of their college years to prepare for a future engineering career.
