One of eBay’s highlights is its rich intern program run by Suzanna Gagnier. Interns enjoy a vast variety of activities including movies and trips to Giants ball games, but that is only the beginning of the story.
- Ethan Bao explained how his tool can analyze wastage from unused classes in jar files by extracting and displaying loaded classes from staging pools.
- Gregory Guterman showed multiple browser extensions he built for configuring browser proxies.
- Kelvin Nguyen presented a UI for viewing and managing eBay’s impact analysis tool, to help identify how code changes affect a set of machines.
- Shaunak Khedkar demonstrated a tool for analyzing live eBay site errors.
- Larry Guan showed a tool for viewing the status of builds and releases.
- Dinesh Madavin demonstrated a GIT metrics tool.
- Jonah Tang presented his work on a new proprietary IDE that combines all the major IDEs used internally by eBay developers.
- Sanket Kalwit’s presentation focused on his work on the Skunkworks-winning Tagz project, a Chrome extension to provide UI Feedback.
But, as August comes to an end, so do most of the twelve-week internships; it is time for the interns to go back to school.
