SUTA Seattle Chapter had its second quarterly event in one of Microsoft's facilities in Redmond, WA. The event hosted two prominent and distinguished speakers: Dr. Firooz Partovi (former professor at the Physics Department of Sharif University of Technology) and Mr. Hadi Partovi (Harvard alumnus, tech entrepreneur and CEO and co-founder of code.org).
Hadi presented his views on how the industry needs computer programmers more than ever and how code.org facilitates the process of learning coding and computer science for K-12 students. His father, Dr. Firooz Partovi, joined him for the Q&A session. Firooz, one of the founding professors at Sharif University of Technology, shared his academic life journey with the audience and answered various questions.
This event was well received by more than 100 people. From the survey results, it was observed that most attendees were quite happy with the event and looked forward to the next SUTA events.
