SINFO will run from 26th February to 2nd March at Técnico and new companies will participate in this year’s edition, such as Talkdesk. Considered one of the 100 best cloud companies, Talkdesk was created by two Técnico alumni, Cristina Fonseca and Tiago Paiva, and will organise two talks: ‘From webscale to meltdown’, delivered by Carlos Morgado, principal engineer at Talkdesk and ‘Real world software development’, a workshop given by Sean Martin, senior engineer. Taldesk will offer two Técnico students the opportunity of travelling to San Francisco and visit Talkdesk headquarters’ offices.
Talkdesk participates in SINFO through Talkdesk Tech Dojo: a programme for recent graduates and MSc in Computer Engineering, Electronics and Mathematics and for everyone interested in improving skills in Software Developemnt, SRE, Security, Quality Assurance and Data Science. The company announced that it intends to recruit staff directly from universities, which might happen during SINFO.
