The GSU chapter of the ACM presents Facebook: What I Wish I Had Known John Martin Adjunct Lecturer & Facebook Engineer-in-Residence Department of Computer Science Georgia State University There are so many ways to be a successful software engineer, but there are also fundamental things you can do in school and as a new grad to set yourself up to thrive in the industry. In this talk, I will explore some advice that no one gave me, but that would have cleared up a great deal about getting hired at Facebook, transitioning from school to software engineering, and enjoying myself in the process. Anyone wondering how to get started in the industry is invited to come and ask questions. About the Speaker: John Martin is the lecturer for Software Engineering (CSC 4350) this fall. He's been an engineer at Facebook in the Connectivity group for over four years, working on a wide array of tools for planning network infrastructure deployments. He's excited to meet students and help them navigate all aspects of entering the industry. Win a valuable door prize! An Amazon Echo Show 5 smart display (2021 release) will be given away.
