The Association for Computing Machinery’s Annual Lecture in Memory of Nathan Krasnopoler will be held at 4 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7 in Hackerman Hall B-17 on the Johns Hopkins University’s Homewood campus.
Mike Ambinder, a senior experimental psychologist at Valve, will deliver a lecture titled “Shipping Something: How Valve Makes Products and How You Can, Too.” The talk will walk listeners through the process that Valve (developer of Half-Life, Team Fortress, DOTA and more) uses to create, iterate, and ship its products, and how that process can yield the skills and experience necessary to succeed in the software industry. The key “takeaway” from this lecture is that what works for Valve can also work for undergraduates looking for their first jobs, and can help them develop the ability to get where they want to go.
This lecture is sponsored by the Nathan Krasnopoler Memorial Fund, established at the Whiting School of Engineering to benefit the Johns Hopkins’ chapter of the Association for Computing Machinery.
