CS Tea Time

Come weekly to the "tea time" with CS faculty and students. Anyone interested in CS is welcome.

Thursday, October 24th, 2013
4:00 – 5:00 pm / CMC 209

Our CS tea-time event this week will feature Dan Callahan '08 (now working at Mozilla) talking about his experience in industry in the Twin Cities, and taking both technical and nontechnical questions about his experiences.  (And Mozilla is looking for interns!)  We would love to see you all, from first-year CS 100/108/111 students to compsing seniors, there this week. 

Dan Callahan ('08, Geology) is a Minneapolis-based senior developer at Mozilla, where he's building an open alternative to passwords on the Web. Before landing at Mozilla in March 2012, Dan had worked for a large corporation, joined a dying startup, and freelanced for nearly a year.

The event will be a freeform discussion touching on:

- What it's like to work on a large, open source project.
- How you can get involved with (or intern at!) Mozilla.
- The Twin Cities tech scene in general.
- Life as a remote employee.
- Building production-grade applications with Node.js
- Prototyping native browser features with nothing but JavaScript and a domain.
- Replacing passwords with public key cryptography.
- Designing a privacy-preserving federated identity system.
