5th week reflection


This is my 5th week. 1 month has passed.

When I first came here I did not know much about Tutor/Mentor Connections.

Now I can explain to my friends and family about T/MC.

I think I gained a deep thought about people around me.

All information I got from the site was so impressive. 

There are works that other interns did, so I also looked at that.

When I first came here I was really surprised with some works that they had…

My introduction : Wona Chang

Hi !

This is the first project I had done since I started internship.

It was the first time that I work on prezi, so what I first did was learn how to use it.

I had a lot of fun learning new skills. 

I like telling about myself, so it was also good time for me introducing myself to public.

I also had a chance to think about my goal of this internship and what kinds of contributions I can make for Tutor/mentor connection.

This is my…

I've never studied about java and google map API, so I had to study.

Actually, make a new function would be better... 

For that, I need only V3 information, but migrating v2 to v3..I must study both of them.

However, I…
