    The Right Startup Culture For Me

    At startups with more female employees, Nerf battles, wrestling matches and beer guzzling are not the only ways to have fun at the office.

    During my summer internship in San Francisco, I began to seriously think about the startup culture that suits me best. I met with other students involved in my internship program on Wednesdays and we had the opportunity to meet with a variety of executives from technology companies in the Bay Area. Russell Glass, CEO of B2B marketing company Bizo, especially inspired me. I wondered why Bizo sounded like an exceptional place to work and other companies didn’t.

    My First Hackathon: iOSDevCamp 2012

    I’m a rising senior at Duke majoring in Public Policy.

    I took my first Computer Science class this past spring and did web development over the summer for Y Combinator startup Jellyfish Art in San Francisco. This fall I’m taking a class on iOS development and another on web application development. I was hired as a part time web developer for Jellyfish Art for the upcoming school year. I will return to the Bay Area when I graduate.

    My first hackathon was iOSDevCamp at PayPal/Ebay headquarters on July 20-22, 2012.
