EAGLE TECHNOLOGIES

Software Developer Intern
May 2018 – Aug 2018

I was one of four software interns at Eagle Technologies. We created an application that visualized data from the 2017 Head Start Program Information Report (PIR) as an interactive heat map of the United States, the US territories, and Palau. We started with a complex excel sheet filled with survey data. We then inserted this data into a PostgreSQL database using Hibernate and Jersey. The application itself was created with Angular 5 and the D3.js library. It was turned from solely a web application to a web and mobile application for both Android and IOS with Apache Cordova. I spent most of my time working with D3.js and TypeScript to enhance the user experience of the interactive map.

I was a tutor at Coder Kids, a computer science tutoring company. I tutored children aged 6 to 13 in small groups bi-weekly. The children would follow various online Coder Kids tutorials based on their skill level and interests that taught Scratch, Roblox, Python and Java Minecraft Coding, website creation, and app building. I would assist the children when they had questions and keep them focused and entertained by their work.
