Starting My Twitter Internship

Yesterday I started my internship with the Real Time Compute team at Twitter! I will be working to apply the findings of my performance modelling research Apache Storm topologies to Twitter’s Heron system.

I arrived last week and spent the time mainly getting over my jet lag and finding the grocery store!

I really enjoyed the onboarding sessions, learning all about Twitter’s history (the company started out as a podcasting app!) and meeting my fellow Tweeps!
