What it's like to work as a software person at Intel (video)

I'm taking a break from my usual posts about embedded Linux and the Yocto Project to let you in on a little secret.

Working at as a software person at Intel can be pretty awesome.

A few weeks ago, we had a video crew stalking our offices, rolling tape on some of our work day. I heard last night from Sarah Sharp that the result was up on YouTube. It was intended as a recruitment tool, but it's a nice artifact of everyday life here. Some highlights from the video:

    • My boss, Imad Sousou, talking about how his group acts like a small software company within Intel

    • Men and women from all nationalities talking about the intellectual challenges and opportunity for balance

    • Quite accurate depiction of our workplace (in Jones Farm, Hillsboro, Oregon) although to be honest, every day is not so sunny as in the video. The Nerf gun battles do actually break out periodically.

    • A brief shot of Joshua Lock, one of the guys on my team, perhaps because he has a few visible tattoos

    • Nice interview with Sarah, one of our Linux kernel hackers and some of the other technical females from our group

    • And even a brief cameo appearance by me!

Of course, there is a huge variety of working situations and projects. But this makes me proud and happy to be working here.
