We are excited to begin featuring our many WISH members who have exciting stories to share from their summer internships🎉 For our first feature in the series we have a duo feature, Katie Buck and Sarah Kurdoghlian. Katie Buck is a third year studying Software Engineering. This summer she was a part of the NBCUniversal Media Tech internship program working from NYC🏙She focused on iOS Development and Video playback with her technology team. Here is what Katie had to say about what she learned and a word of advice to all our WISH ladies! “I worked on a video playback SDK that is sent to our brands to play videos. I added features into the iOS and tvOS test harnesses and refactored code to make it more efficient. My advice is to be confident in your abilities, because I was able to pick up two new programming languages within my first week there but was worried I would not be able to do it.” Sarah Kurdoghlian is a third year majoring in Computer Science. She just happened to be a coworker of Katie’s this summer, but she worked from the Universal City location in Los Angeles☀️🌊 Sarah was an intern for the Media Engineering department, here is what she said about her experience. “I was able to build a web application for my team to help centralize where they report their service/network outages. Throughout the process I taught myself the Django web framework and how to configure a server for production! The culture at NBC was so positive and supportive, everyone welcomed me with open arms! My advice is to always be curious and not be afraid to ask questions. Being an intern means you don’t know everything, so it’s your chance to get all your questions answered!” Thank you Katie and Sarah for sharing you summer stories😁 We at WISH are so proud of your accomplishments, see you in the Fall! Please reach out to these two wonderful ladies with any questions or just to connect💻🙌🏻 #InternatNBCU #mediatech #codingbuddies #WISH #womenintech #wishcalpoly #wishsummerspotlight
