What does work look like in a major software company?
In this panel discussion, we bring four engineers from different parts of the Oracle development stack to talk about work:

- What was the transition like going from academia to developing commercial software used by everyone?
- How does one's academic background and research translate to innovation?
- What best practices from academia should one apply to commercial software development and vice versa?
