For Lizzie Siegle, 2016 has been a pretty terrific year so far. The rising junior tennis star earned Second Team All-Centennial Conference honors following a prolific spring campaign, and was also named to the Seven Sisters All-Tournament Team. However, the accolades did not stop there, as Siegle continued impressing off the court as well. In particular, Siegle has spent her summer gaining valuable experience in the world of technology, programming, and startups. She worked this summer for a company called PubNub, a San Francisco-based tech company that helps customers develop and operate realtime apps using a Data Stream Network. Sounds complicated, right? How about we let her share her story in her own words instead!
"I've been developing iOS, web, and Android apps this summer and blogging about how to make them. Some apps include d a realtime data visualization of Warriors basketball tweets, a heart rate tracker and data visualization monitor with a Raspberry Pi, a Pokemon Go map, and a data visualization of tweets about the upcoming election."
"I also organized a ping pong meetup for local interns and engineers in San Francisco at the office, gave tech talks at Google SF for a SFHTML5 meetup group, at Square for a WomEng college edition meetup, and at Yelp for Women who Code and PyLadies. I also gave workshops on how to use PubNub (my company) at Spectra, a women's hackathon I helped organize, and a modified presentation to a group of high schoolers from Twitter's Girls who Code Summer Immersion program."
