Concise overview of things learned. Break it up into Technical Area, Tools, Soft Skills
Technical Area: I have learned how to use Selenium for webscraping, and other things related such as xpath, pandas, etc.
Tools: I learned about the purpose of Github and how it is used, as well as using Slack for communication with the team.
Soft Skills: Communication with team members.
Three achievement highlights
I gained an understanding of how webscraping is done with Selenium
Better understanding of dataframes/xpath and using them to store data from webscraping
Using Slack for team communication
List of meetings/ training attended including social team events
I have attended all team meetings so far, and I viewed the Git webinar along with previously recorded webinars.
Goals for the upcoming week
Learning to understand BERT and other learning models, how they work, and how to implement them to our project. Also, with more knowledge, contributing more to the team code.
Detailed statement of tasks done. State each task, hurdles faced if any and how you solved the hurdle. You need to clearly mark whether the hurdles were solved with the help of training webinars, some help from project leads or significant help from project leads.
I have set up accounts for GSuite, Asana, Slack, and Github. Initially had problems using the GSuite account, but that was solved during a meeting.
I learned to scrape the Amazon Custom forum and put the data into several columns using the Pandas dataframe, but encountered some trouble, but I fixed them with the help of my teammates’ code, some researching online, and resources given by team leads.
