The Rise of the Interns

We had an amazing cohort of interns working at Khan Academy this summer. Here’s a taste of what a few of them were up to:

Jamie Wong - computer science, developer tools

Ben Alpert - man about town

Ankit Ahuja - video discussions

Omar Rizwan - exercises, coaching, tomfoolery

Dylan Vassallo - datastore

It’s incredible and humbling what our intern team has been able to achieve in one short summer!


Brave New-DB World

Intern Dylan Vassallo has been working this summer to convert our Google App Engine datastore to use the next-generation “NDB” Python API.

Read more about Dylan’s experience in converting our system to use NDB. And if you’re considering upgrading your App Engine to use NDB, don’t miss A Hitchhiker’s Guide to Upgrading App Engine models to NDB.
