About 500 QLD students from a wide range of schools listened to representatives from a wide range of IT companies. I particularly enjoyed hearing from Anna Emmerson, Site Reliability Engineer at Google. A local girl, studying at St Peter’s in Brisbane and UQ, Anna was able to encourage the students (especially the girls) to work hard so that they too can potentially work at a company like Google.
It was great having Richard Turner-Jones with me for this event. His demos were very popular.
