The Department of Computer Science will be hosting alumnus Dimitri Glazkov on Wednesday, July 11 from 4:00 - 5:00 p.m. in UBOB 208. Glazkov will talk about his career and about the Fuchsia operating system he’s developing at Google. Prior to his employment at Google, Glazkov worked as the technical lead for the Chrome Web Platform team.
Glazkov will offer career advice and also share about opportunities at Google, including the Google Engineering Residency program, which is specifically designed to accelerate the transition from school to industry — enabling students to have an impact right away. It's a great opportunity for graduating seniors to invest one year into developing their future career by working at Google, side-by-side with engineers on important, real-world projects.
About the Fuchsia Operating System
The Fuchsia project aims to discover, design, and build the foundation for the next generation of computing. Today's operating systems are based on the concepts that were relevant when they were invented in 1970s and 1980s, but the rapid evolution of computers and even the definition of computers had changed dramatically over the last few years. What is the next step in operating system evolution? This is the question that the project explores. Fuchsia is developed in the open, and while it is still in a very early stage, it welcomes external contributors and collaborators.
