Tech Talk Hosted by Women in Technology @ UCSD

 

** Event Cancelled**

Join Women in Computing @UCSD  Tuesday, February 19th from 6 30 to 8 30 PM in CSE 1202 for a tech talk on the founding of Piazza and Women in Technology!

Pooja (Nath) Sankar is the founder and CEO of Piazza, the leading social learning platform for students and teachers in higher education. She has worked at Oracle, Kosmix, and Facebook, and has degrees from IIT, the University of Maryland, and Stanford. The genesis for Piazza and Sankar’s passion for social learning came from her experience as one of a handful of women in the computer science program at IIT in the late 1990s. Sankar started Piazza while studying for her MBA at Stanford, where she failed a class in entrepreneurship because she was too busy running the business.
