36: Stephanie Hurlburt - Mentoring and Open Office Hours
About This Episode
Stephanie is a co-founder and graphics engineer at Binomial.
She works on Basis, an image compressor, and has customers in games, video, mapping, and any application that has lots of image data.
Stephanie has also been encouraging experienced engineers to open up their twitter DMs to questions from anyone, to help mentor people not only in technical questions, but in career questions as well.
She also sets aside some time to mentor people through skype when written form just doesn't cut it.
That's the primary reason I have Stephanie on today, to talk about mentoring and open office hours.
But we also talk about
- image compression
- texture mapping
- the use of both manual and automated testing for complex systems
- sane work hours
- work life balance
- and how long hours have led her to the opinions she holds today
