How did Evergreen prepare you for your professional life?

I studied history and the like at Evergreen, but I also worked in the computer lab. The combination of the two ensured that I was comfortable in a collaborative environment, willing to stand apart from others as I saw necessary, and willing to take and offer criticism when needed. These have prepared me to enter into the software development world as a self-taught developer and software engineer, and to create frameworks and approaches which both work but take things from a different perspective. If I had to give three major influences it would be my studies at Evergreen (and the way that I continue them on my own), my work in the computer lab, and my love of chess, and two of those are tied to my time at Evergreen.
