For my LACE interview, I interviewed someone who works as a Director of Software Development. I’m interested in several varying career paths at the moment, and one of my interests involves computer science and mathematics. My intention was to find someone who worked in cryptography, but as it would have been quite difficult to focus on a very specific job, I decided to branch out and look for jobs involving computer science or software. During this interview I acquired some insight into the developmental world of technology, which shone some light onto different career paths I might be able to take.
