Oluwatoyin Yetunde Sanni is a Nigerian based Software Developer currently working with Andela. How did you get involved in technology I’ve always enjoyed taking things apart, figuring out how they worked and then putting them back together again. I was introduced to a computer very early. I remember opening my first yahoo account when I was barely 12 years and this was the era when the Internet was not a luxury as it is now. Even though I earned a degree in Computer Science [from the University of Ilorin]. But

Like father, like daughter, Los Angeles native Kymberlee Hill fell in love with music watching her dad work as a music producer. When the industry shifted to incorporate more technology, her dad shifted right along with it, creating websites and graphics for artists in addition to his producing. Fascinated by her father’s work, Kym started teaching herself how to use digital design tools like Photoshop and InDesign. “Music, creativity, and entrepreneurship were taught to me at a very young age,” Kym said. “My dad and I had our own radio

Tell us a bit about yourself? Hey Michael I’ve been following POCIT since one of your first publications, and I’m pretty excited to contribute to the community. A bit more about me – I was born in Chicago, spent my childhood in Mississippi, and grew up in Seattle.

These days my home is split between Barcelona Spain, where I’ve lived since 2014, and New York City where since 2017 I’ve

Meet Tsion Behailu, a Google Software Engineer in the San Francisco Bay area. She graduated from UC Berkeley with a bachelors in Computer Engineering. Tsion is not only a diligent and driven person, she also has a heart of gold. She is dedicated to helping others reach their highest potential. I’m lucky enough to have her as my cousin and mentor. When she’s not out conquering the world, she travels, spends quality time with family and friends, and inspires others to pursue computer science. Tsion was born in Metehara, Ethiopia and came to Atlanta, Georgia with

This may seem confusing and quite drastic upon initially skimming over the title, but there is a back story that provides context to a unique problem and an equally viable solution that sprouted in my life for the past year, looking back, and looking forward into 2018. I am your typical and atypical nerd. I grew up playing video games everyday, reading sci-fi/fantasy books, illustrating, writing stories, composing music, playing horn instruments obnoxiously loud in the garage, and studying any subject I found and deemed intriguing and significant to the human

I got a chance to sit down and speak to one my favorite comedy/tech YouTubers, Jarvis Johnson. When he’s not making insightful and hilarious videos about the tech world, he’s a Software Engineer at Patreon [who are currently hiring for a bunch of roles on pocitjobs.com]. Tell us a bit about yourself and what you do? I’m Jarvis. I’m a software engineer at this company called Patreon. I have a YouTube channel where I talk about life and tech through the lens of comedy and a comedy podcast called Sad boyz

Also referred to as fraud syndrome, imposter syndrome refers to a high-functioning individual’s inability to internalize his or her achievements and an associated state of perpetual fear of being exposed as an imposter or a fraud.
