Spotlight on Shelby Cohen

Language: Kotlin

What the F(p) is Kotlin?

We, as two entry level engineers, took on the challenge of introducing Kotlin and Functional Programming to our company, Intuit. Even though you all know Kotlin is a great language, we overcame the obstacles associated with a large company structure of having a common tech stack. In addition, Kotlin provided a natural transition for OOP Java developers to use Functional Programming Paradigms.

Hear about how, in less than two years, we went from getting our diplomas to gaining influence and driving change at a major technology company, and how you can do it too.

About Shelby:

Shelby, like Katie Levy, is a software engineer at Intuit. Both women are passionate about encouraging a positive work learning culture for engineers to do the best work of their lives. Whether it is Android development, server-side development, Functional Programming, or developing full web applications in Kotlin, they both have the fierce dedication to always be learning and improving their skills as engineers and employees.
