Favorite Project

I enjoyed fixing bugs related to the GitHub website and my intern project. Our assignment was to make the suggester feature more personalized, efficient, and smarter. I had three great teammates whom I enjoyed seeing and working with everyday. My manager and everyone else at GitHub were always helpful when I had questions. I learned so much this summer and believe that this experience has made me a better software developer.

Biggest Takeaway

This internship taught me how new features are developed and shipped to the general public. Our manager gave us space to make our own decisions about the direction of our project. It was interesting to see it go from a plan on a whiteboard to a completed feature shipped to millions of GitHub users.

Favorite Internship Memory

My favorite memory is attending a Giants game with the other interns. While I still remain a loyal Red Sox fan, I loved going and cheering on the home team. It was a great way to bond with the other interns and they even gave us free food. Yum!
