Concise Overview of things learned Technical Area: I have always struggled with computer science and have little to experience with any type of code or programming. I have learned how to use R almost to its full extent during the different R trainings that I have completed.
Tools: I have also learned how to better read and analyze scientific papers using any prior knowledge from any classes or any knew information I have gathered in the notes and webinars that I have attended.
Soft Skills: I am a very shy person at times and would rather do things on my own but in the first two weeks of this internship I have been able to use any leadership or talking skills to feel more comfortable talking or expressing any concerns to the leads.
Three Achievement Highlights
- Although I am not that great at it I have learned a few things about the R training and how to complete it.
- I have been able to socially put myself out there and become comfortable asking any questions that I have.
- I have been able to also learn Python which is a programming system I was not familiar with at all.
List of meetings/ training attended including social team events
I have attended about 75% of the meetings. I did miss the R training at first due to family scheduling. But I have caught up to every missed meeting by watching the recordings and reading the notes. I have made sure to attend all webinars, but I did miss the painting night.
Goals for the upcoming week.
My goals for the week are to get a LinkedIn account and learn how I can use that to connect with others. I would also like to get proficient at R therefore I will not struggle as much throughout the course of the internship.
