Internship at Google 2013
Internship in Google was really awesome! I spent three months in sunny California working with a great people on interesting projects! Google is in my eyes a great company even though its scale is slowly getting quite scary.
I hope this post was interesting and maybe even beneficial to anybody interested in Google internship. If you are thinking about applying what are you waiting for? Just google "Google internship" and start filling the application!
Good luck, have fun, and don't be evil! ;)

7.1 Plans for the next year
For the summer 2014 I basically had two choices, go back to Google or try something new. I was even talking with my former team at Google and they actually wanted me back. However, I have chosen to go somewhere else — to NVIDIA to be more concrete.
This decision was not easy but I decided to change because I find an internship a unique opportunity to try something new. I already know that Google is great so I wanted to compare it to something else. Maybe it won't be as good, but maybe it will. The only way how to know is to try. Don't forget that "better" or "worst" is very subjective here. Not everybody likes to do the same think but I want to do something I like and enjoy so I want to use the internships as a way how to figure this out. When you start to work full time, it's not that easy to try something new anymore.
I will probably write similar (possibly shorter) post about NVIDIA next year.
