An Excursion To Tech Industry

An eBook for all those who’d like to know the intricacies of the tech industry

I’m Samhita Alla — a Tools Developer and Tester at Oracle. I like developing applications and writing blogs about Python and Machine Learning.

After learning the two most important concepts required for not flunking an interview — data structures and system design, and bombing the interviews despite trying to understand them, I’ve told myself that data structures concept isn’t going to rule my career. Data structures and I are sorts of adversaries, and I had plans of getting into top-notch companies without mastering it. So bit by bit, I’ve started looking into other technical areas that piqued my interest.

Now, after having gained more than two years of experience, I’m grateful for the decision I’ve made.

This isn’t about unlearning your knowledge about data structures. Instead, it’s about helping you broaden your scope as to what else the tech industry has in store and inducing practicality into your tech education.

For a typical college student, if there are two courses at hand — data structures and front-end development, most would go for the former. I want to change the tide by conveying the importance of working on career-related technologies right from college and presenting you with all the opportunities you can go after.

“An Excursion To Tech Industry” is an ebook I’ve penned to instil confidence in you and introduce you to the expectations and challenges.

This ebook is for all those who want to carve out a niche in the tech industry. If you’re passionate enough to follow your goals despite the obstacles coming your way, you’re going to become a better techie reading this.
