Summary


This being my first virtual internship, I gotta say it went a lot better than I had expected. At first, I felt like I was going to be unable to accomplish much but as time went on I learned more and more things that helped me move forward with my assigned project. Overall I would say this internship really helped a lot due to the difficulty that comes with working at a tech company as a software engineer. I really enjoyed my time here and im glad to have been a part of something at Uber. :)
