I talked to one of my male friends who also studied Computer Science and he point blank told me to tell Microsoft “NO”. He said “if they didn’t want you for the Software Engineer position, then you really shouldn’t accept it.” Other friends were telling me the same thing that maybe Microsoft wasn’t going to be a good fit. But why not? I really had to reflect on my experiences and what I have been capable of doing. The fact that Microsoft saw my potential made me feel confident in my skills and willingness to take on new challenges.
The Google I/O conference is without a doubt a premiere technical conference where the tickets are hard to come by. Registration opened promptly at 7am PDT on March 13th and it sold out in 49 minutes! Unbelievable! Google approached ABI with an opportunity for our community to receive 2 complimentary tickets and 2 guaranteed registration tickets for their Google I/O conference.
