This summer, Verkada Software Engineering hosted fifteen interns for a twelve-week internship program. Interns worked on projects with our Computer Vision, Search, Embedded, Streaming, and Events and Notifications teams. At the end of the summer, interns had the opportunity to present their capstone projects to the entire Verkada Engineering team. As we round out the last few weeks of our program, we spoke to three of our standout interns, Bhavna Sud, Ethan Lord, and Luka Govedič, to get a sense of how they spent their summer at Verkada!
