As software engineers we have the skills to make great tools but perhaps an even greater honor is the opportunity to teach and share our skills with others. In this episode we speak to an engineer who does just that, inspires future engineers through her community involvement.
Our guest today is Sierra Acy, a software engineer at HBO Max. She is a huge proponent of and loves helping others learn computer science and giving back to her community. When she volunteers and shares her knowledge, she is constantly reminded of why she loves software engineering.
Her love for community service began while in college at UT Austin organizing Hour of Code events for local schools. She has since spent a great deal of time organizing Disney’s Seattle internship program and is currently a teacher through the TEALSK12 program and a mentor with Mentors in Tech. Not only is Sierra a software engineer she is also a book cover and e-marketing material designer with over 20 published covers. Prior to working at HBO Max, she worked at The Walt Disney Company and Microsoft.
