Happy almost weekend everyone! Today will be my second to last day at CodeHS! I’m sad to go, yet also super excited to go back to WashU. Today is hackathon day of the month, so I’ll be spending most of my time working on finishing up my hackathon project from last month: the project displays […]

Hey everybody! So this weekend, my friends from WashU came to visit me! I met up with them after work, where I gave them a brief tour of my office before heading off to the piers and the Ferry Building. We took the Bart to Embarcadero and walked all the way to Fisherman’s Wharf and […]

I am finishing up my second to last week at CodeHS! Currently, I’m working on a project where teachers can create problems easily and store them in a ‘playlist’: a playlist is similar to creating a course, but it is simply a way of storing multiple created problems. I’m working with a framework called AngularJS, […]

This weekend, I spent most of my day on Saturday hiking Muir Woods. It’s located north of San Francisco, and to get there my friends and I went by ferry and then shuttle. We first arrived at the Ferry Building to catch the ferry to Sausalito. The nice thing about having a clipper card is […]

What’s up everyone! I am quite exhausted today; I woke up at 4:45 AM in hopes of catching a glimpse of the sunrise at Twin Peaks. I guess we forgot about how large Karl the Fog was though, and the moment we stepped out of the lyft I knew that we were probably not going […]

July 26, 2016

Hey all! I had a wonderful day yesterday! I had just recently finished my second version of the project that I’ve been working on, which is allowing teachers to create custom badges and award them to students. I’ll be writing a blog post for my company actually on their medium account, so I’ll have a […]

Happy weekend everyone! This week, I’ve been focusing on my latest assigned project! Last week, I was helping primarily with fixing bugs (issues with code for those unfamiliar with the terminology) with the new grading system that went live, but this week I got to focus on my own one-week project. Usually, I spend more […]

Sorry for the late post! This weekend has been pretty busy; I actually got to spend some time in St. Louis and see some friends! Unfortunately, I didn’t have much time to go visit STS though. I want to talk today about my experience at Palo Alto and Stanford! I went with my roommate after […]

I am exhausted from all of the things that I’ve done this weekend! On Saturday, I went to Lands End, an area for hiking in the northwest section of San Francisco right above ocean beach and west of Golden Gate Bridge. Lands End has a great deal of ocean views since it’s at the border […]

July 7, 2016

It’s great to have a four day weekday! It’s a little bit strange because this week feels very short although it’s only one less day of work, but I’m definitely not complaining. This week, I’m working on a large number of projects! It is definitely significantly busier than last week, as we have a deadline […]

   Boy am I stuffed! I just got some amazing beignets and fried chicken and waffles from this restaurant called Front Porch near my apartment. If any of you are in the northern Bernal Heights area, I’d recommend this place for brunch for sure. It was a bit strange though because while I was seated […]

Happy July!      I am super excited for the weekend! It’s going to be my first long weekend and I’m definitely ready for it; it’s been pretty tiring adjusting to the “adult” life and I’m ready for a break. Yesterday, I participated in my company’s monthly Hackathon: every month, every member of the team gets […]

June 27, 2016

  Hey all, I’ve been looking forward to writing this post for awhile! This weekend, I got to go to Corgicon at Ocean Beach and witness the Pride Parade firsthand! I’ve also met a lot of new friends! A bunch of us met up because we all wanted to go to Corgicon together. We all […]

  Hope you all had a good week so far! I think I’m coming down with a bit of a cold unfortunately; it’s definitely harder to focus on work when you’re struggling with sickness. As an intern, you only get 10 weeks so even missing one day is a lot! I’m going to go to […]

June 19, 2016

What’s up everyone, Happy Father’s Day! Make sure to call your parents especially when you’re all the way across the country from them. Today though, my post will be focusing on housing. If you guys don’t already know, it is notoriously difficult to find reasonable housing in the city. Studios are an average of around […]

June 15, 2016

Hello all, As promised, I will be updating more frequently! Last time I posted I was finishing up bootcamp week, where the company gets you familiarized with the technology and the codebase. Now, I’m actually starting to work on projects around the site! My first day comprised primarily of making certain pages of the site […]

June 12, 2016: Day one as a CodeHS intern

  Hey everybody, Sorry for the late update! It’s been a hectic first week so far; from now on, I’ll be updating more regularly about my work and my experience every Wednesday and every Saturday. Nonetheless, I started work on Monday, which has been great so far. I wake up each morning at 8AM and […]

June 4, 2016

Hey everyone! I’m here woohoo! I arrived in San Francisco Thursday afternoon and was extremely tired due to the early wake up and 3-hour time difference.  To keep myself from falling asleep the instant I arrived, I decided to check out CoffeeShop, which was a 5-minute walk away from my apartment. It’s easy to miss: […]
