Software engineering at Twitter with Mihai Anca, formerly @csmcr, 9th October, 2pm
What's it like making software at Twitter?
Mihai Anca is visting Manchester from San Francisco, California to talk about life at Twitter as a software engineer. He will outline the projects that they work on, what technical challenges they have and how computer science students could help twitter build the global town square. This is a really great opportunity to learn more about Twitter and ask plenty of questions.
Mihai (@ropiku) graduated with a first class degree in Distributed Computing from the School of Computer Science in 2012. He now works as a software engineer at Twitter HQ in Silicon Valley, where he is experimenting with features across email, push notifications, web and native clients to grow Twitter. He uses Scala, Java, Apache Pig and Objective-C and his work affects millions of Twitter users every day.
The talk takes place in Lecture Theatre 1.1 in the Kilburn building on Wednesday 9th October at 2pm, and will be immediately followed by a special Manchester Coding Dojo hands-on session on Cracking the Coding Interview at 3pm discussing job interviewing at Twitter and other tech companies. Mihai is hosted by the Industry Club and the Manchester Coding Dojo @uomcodingdojo, everyone is welcome, though priority will be given to students @csmcr if we run out of seats (capacity ~250).
