Reflecting on my first two months as an STA this semester, I’ve had a great semester here. I’ve got to learn so much in my trainings, make friends with the coolest people, and be apart of a really positive working environment! I’ve made a lot of memories from starting with Hoa to having the funniest conversations with Valerie and Abriella. Estella has taught me a lot about the details and thinking that must go behind web development to make it accessible and visually pleasing. I never had prior experience with design, but I have gotten to work on design trainings and learn from my fellow STAs, Suloni, Valerie, etc.
I just finished completing an infographic on optimal card design layouts as my final assignment for the semester.
This is another example of me learning more about incorporating knowledge of design elements into web development, as the way your final products look is just as significant as the backend.
This summer I’m planning on interning as a software developer in New York, so I’m excited to be out of my comfort zone for the next few months. But I’m also looking forward to returning to LAITS in the fall and start working on more projects with Estella for more clients. Even though there have been mishaps along the way, getting familiarized with the job, I think I’ve learned a ton and don’t feel too new and unfamiliar here after these two months!
Thank you for a great time, I look forward to seeing everybody who is returning in the fall!
