Don't Panic Labs

Software Engineering Intern

May - August 2019 • Lincoln, NE

What I liked

This Internship was amazing! I got to work in both frontend and backend development. We worked closely with full-time members and were included in a lot of essential meetings on our projects. The experience was one that I learned so much from, and encourage anyone to do this as their first internship!

What I wish was different

I didn't have any issues with the internship. I was able to work at my own pace and learn as I worked on tasks.

Advice

Keep an open mind! Before this internship, I had under a year of programming experience. It was through the amazing mentors and my open mind to learn new technologies that I was able to expand my knowledge.

Full-Stack Software Engineer

May - August 2019 • Lincoln, NE

What I liked

I loved the freedom to explore concepts on my own and to practice solving problems in a real world environment. I learned twice as much about software/architecture standards during my internship than in a year of classes.

What I wish was different

I wish we had received more formal reviews of our work in order to improve upon lacking skills.

Advice

The best way to learn is to try to work through problems on your own, but don't be afraid to ask questions and get feedback on your work.
