This May I started my internship at Red Hat with the Pulp team. Since it was my first ever internship, I expected I would spend the summer working in a closet somewhere, on nothing of importance, and that what I worked on would be tossed out the second I left.

My first afternoon with the Pulp team, several members sat down with me and walked me through setting up my development environment and gave me a rough idea of what I would be doing. After only about 30 minutes into my first full day, I realized I was not going to spend the summer in a closet somewhere.

This was the first time I had worked with Python, I had almost no knowledge of Git, and I only had a vague idea what content management meant. Everyone on the Pulp team, and several people who were not, were happy to help with anything and everything I needed.

Yes, it still helps to have a Computer Science degree, but the lack of one is often no drawback. Read more
