Holberton student interviewed by theCUBE at Google

Dora Korpar, a student from Holberton School first class, was recently interviewed byLisa Martin, host of theCUBE, at the CloudNOW “Top 10 Women in Cloud” Innovation Awards, held at Google HQ.

Dora shared her non-traditional path to Tech. She earned a degree in biology, yet that was not enough for her to find a job, and she did not feel like spending few more years at the University — and frankly — simply could not afford to. She was looking for another career path and fan of solving puzzles, Software sounded like a thing she would like to do. Her interest in computer science grew after one of her friends got a job in the industry without attending a regular college 5-year degree program. Dora has another year as a Holberton student but has already found a job with Scality, a Silicon Valley data storage company working for big corporations such as Comcast or Time Warner Cable, after just 8-months in the program. Listen to the rest of her story in the interview below.
