Salaries, Proposals and Cost of Living

Shirley Wu hails from the dark halls of business school, where she had planned out a life in finance. Then she took a Computer Science class and watched a TED talk by Aaron Koblin ("Visualizing Ourselves...with crowd-source data" (http://www.ted.com/talks/aaron_koblin.html)), and found her life's calling. Two and a half years later, she happily codes apps for tech company Splunk, and plays with visualizations and small data-sets at night.
