DEUTSCHE BANK – Technology Intern
I joined an existing project related to trade bookkeeping as a full-stack developer (front-end: Angular, back-end: stored procedures). During this internship, I learnt how to quickly learn the existing code base in a short space of time. I had no prior experience in Angular or stored procedures, teaching me how to learn languages efficiently! I also realised that I am heavily interested in full-stack development.
As part of a team project with 3 other interns, I developed a prototype for sentiment analysis of financial news.
