shame nVidia is in USA, i would love to work in such a place. and able to say i've developed a certain consumer product.
not many large computer based companies in UK, only major ones are ARM and NXP.
the guy in the article still works at nVidia? doesn't seems like it from the article......
Of course Lars still works there, why would he not? Oh, and Nvidia has offices all over the world, just like most other large companies.
I lawl'd at the GTFO on the wall next to his desk.
IT is a great career if you like working with lots of nerdy blokes with poor social skills.
Yay for Lars. Great guy. I left NVIDIA in April but I got my job at NVIDIA in a very similar manner. What he says is very very true. Stay networked, follow your heart, and dare to dream.
The pictures are proof: even holllowed-out volcanoes have cubicles
Interesting read.. Tend to agree, degrees and certifications amount to nothing if the contents not fully understood.
I think it's fair to say having inside contacts will always be a candidates biggest ally but a strong background will normally be enough to get you in the door.
Is he the one that gets game devs to block features on ATI cards?
Oh, not this again... Nvidia didn't disable anything, it merely enabled features for its own cards (AA support in the case of Batman: Arkham Asylum). Can we now move on?
gah, the use of 'kick ass' and lots of l33t speak.... Does that mean he is 'down with the kids' or whatever the term is?
ah, after re-reading. i got confused by this: "After doing this for about six months, there was a re-organization within the company, and I was unfortunately let go as part of that, as the role was being done away with. " sorry.
as far as i know, nVidia, Intel or AMD does not have suitable position for electronic engineers (eg, those who design the chips' controller or datapath) in UK.
good article, hopefully it'll inspire more youngsters take up a career in electronics, it's a fantastic and fascinating topic.
This used to be the case, but there is some hope:
When I was up at Intel UK HQ the other week I was surprised to find an electronics design team has been set up there recently, developing new TV tuner/display interfaces.
too bad i dont think i can show u a photo of my coworkers.... cant say much about development, but services n support are quite eye-catchy and resource management are... "refreshing".
haha, wow, or just to smart for their own good
nice interview thanks for the post
Pics or it didn't happen
i'd love to work with lots of nerdy people with no social skills...
hang on, i DO work with lots of nerdy people with no social skills.
I need to get out more
Great Article.. I'd like to see more editorials like this on Bit-Tech.
I thought there would just be a picture of knee pads
