Tell us about your intership experience.

I did my internship at Skycatch in San Francisco, CA. In the internship, I created and built a new individual service to monitor and log events and errors in all other services based on Javascript (NodeJs) and provide events and errors for the cloud. This service can make informed decisions for customer success and help engineers have visibility for troubleshooting.

I also worked on embedded software development about Payload SDK (DJI) based on Linux, C++, which implemented callbacks about the communication between the transmitter, computer, onboard SDK and drones so that we can use our customized camera on the payload with the interface I designed.

As an intern, I learned how to cooperate with other teammates to build a product and I loved the creativity of tech in San Francisco.
