Yingyu Sun Computer Science, Internship, Professional & Academic, Viterbi Summer 0 Comments

“Slack?” my mom asked me when I told her where I’d be interning for the summer. “What’s Slack?” Slack is one of the fastest growing enterprise software companies today, and a place where I’ve been fortunate enough to work for the past few months. At a company that values playfulness, empathy, and craftsmanship, I’ve been able to learn more about …

I spent most of the summer back home in Chicago. While I wasn’t doing a formal internship, I’m really glad to have had the time “off” – I think it’s important to take time every so often to recenter and really consider what you’re doing and why you’re doing it. College goes by really quickly, and it’s too easy to …
