Building Software With Empathy (Intern Files #025)

I started to use decentralized apps I was so excited about blockchain technology. I quickly realized the tools that existed to use this technology were not meant for people like me, who are not technically savvy. I was so excited about the potential for blockchain but I felt stuck in this situation where I couldn’t actually use the technology. Because of this, I created TryCrypto, blockchain tools your grandma can use.

My First Real Programming Experience (Intern Files #023)

Done with OU for the summer, and completed the Hacker Fellows internship bootcamp. Now off to Lansing to kick off my internship experience with Lingco Language Labs. I was tasked with learning React, HTML and CSS to make marketing facing design changes, and that is when the hammer came down…

Blending Development and Entrepreneurship (Intern Files #022)

I am not one of those people who knew they were going to be a Computer Scientist from birth or had been programming since they were nine years old (OK, bit of an exaggeration, but I know people who started programming really young). In fact, I had zero experience with programming!

Caught Up in the Company Culture (Intern Files #020)

Whoops … Before I knew it, I spent a few pay checks on sneakers and designer streetwear items from our company’s website. &%*$!!!! Financial missteps aside, I feel extremely lucky to have worked for StockX, and soon … my summer project is getting deployed into production!

Live n' Learn (Intern Files #017)

When I'm finished, every integration test will include a performance report on various metrics of our system. We have to keep our stack running at light speed! Another great thing about working for a startup is that there is no excessive management overhead. I absolutely love this. More time coding, and less time in meetings! 

Skillin' It (Intern Files #016)

With that being said, I couldn’t have gotten this internship opportunity without Hacker Fellows, and for that I will be forever grateful. The whole Hacker Fellows experience has exceeded my expectations, from the first week of the bootcamp up until now.
