"Khan Academy has certainly been my favourite internship so far. In addition to the typical Silicon Valley pay and perks, I had the freedom to plan and implement technically-challenging features that impacted all of our users, followed up with metrics to study effects. I derived much benefit from this internship as well, having learned and worked in areas completely new to me with helpful mentors; writing a blog post on my work that hit Hacker News and Reddit (http://david-hu.com/ka-ml.html); and being a part of the core team contributing to open-source software benefiting millions of users. They asked me to make a video detailing my experiences, which you can see here -- http://david-hu.com/ka-internship-post-mortem.html"
