I was neutral about the work that I did.

Challenged me well
Learned a lot
Work felt pointless

What did your project(s) entail? What kinds of tools did you get to work with?

I learned a lot about GoLang, Jenkins, and Docker. However, it felt as if I was just assigned a throwaway project that wont be used in the future.

Final Thoughts


Written Thoughts:

Okay, internship, there is a lot of room for improvement regarding individual teams, overall the company makes a good effort to help the intern experience. A good benefit, however, was the monthly Uber credits (around $200) which I got to use to order food.
