Internship Reflection

As a grandson of an Air Force veteran, I was proud to be able to work on a project for the military using my background as a game designer and programmer. While the internship may have only lasted six months, I will continue to use the C# programming skills I have picked up in my future endeavors. Working in programming pairs helped immensely for being on-boarded onto the project, and by the end of the first three months I would be regularly driving development within my code-pair. In addition, I got experience with Unit Testing and writing coverage for the project to ensure that features were working as intended. By the last few months of the internship, I was an active participant in onboarding new team members and getting them familiar with the code base. Six months flew by faster than I could imagine, and I enjoyed every second of it.
