An Inside Look at IBM: Sue McKinney Shares Insight on the Company and the ACM-ICPC

December 11th, 2009 · Comments

rePhoto_SueMcKinney.jpgNow that the top 103 teams attending the ACM-ICPC World Finals have been announced, Sue McKinney, the vice president of development transformation and integration for the IBM software group, spoke with ICPC podcast host Meredith Setzman about this pool of talent and offered some advice.

Not only did Sue let us into the world of IBM, she discussed some of the great opportunities that arise when working for IBM as well as the future of software and industry trends.

In addition, as a woman in the field, she reminds us that female participants are just as capable as the males and even have a few advantages.  Sue herself is a great example, as she has certainly worked her own way up the ladder through successful developments with agile methods.

Wondering where the next Sue McKinney will come from?  For a full list of schools going to Harbin, China for the World Finals, click here.
