When I got an offer from Uncorked Studios to join on as a development intern, I was the happiest person in the world! I still feel this way. Why you may ask? I get to work on some of the most epic projects and learn new things everyday on the job. I have contributed to LEGO Superhero Movie Maker iOS app by making a delete movie from movie gallery feature, creating xibs for the YouTube feature, and made the progress bar animation for uploading video to YouTube. The LEGO Movie Maker app was one of the first iOS apps I have worked on when I first started learning Objective-C. In addition, I have learned a lot of iOS libraries especially libraries within the AVFoundation framework and some Ruby syntax for adding and removing columns and making API calls by working on one of Uncorked iOS projects in its early stages with my mentor, Shawn Bernard, one of the lead software engineers at my workplace. It’s still under NDA, but I can’t wait for it to come out on the app store, as it was one of my main projects I worked on during my internship.
Everyone here at Uncorked Studios is like a family to me. They truly support me in my career choices and help me out when I need help on the projects I have been working on.
We even have small parties for people joining onto the team, for people joining full-time on the team, for people leaving, and for successful launch of apps. So much delicious food and drinks have been consumed at those parties. Oh and I have discovered yellow pickled cauliflower at one of the parties, which I have never seen before in my life. I have been to at least four parties since I have started my internship back in early June. Even though we party for a lot of reasons, we also work our butts off for all of the products we produce.
I couldn’t ask for a more awesome internship experience. I am lucky to be here at Uncorked Studios. I will definitely miss everyone here when I go back to school.
