Recap: The First Month as an Intern

Hi, my name is Yu Koga. I have been working at Tagbangers as an intern since the beginning of June. In this article, I'd like to reflect on what I have done and learned throughout the past month.

Here's a brief list of the major things I have done so far:

1. Created a very simple calculation tool using Javascript (My very first project).

2. Learned & started using Git.

3. Created a calculator using Javascript.

4. Replicated two UNIX commands, ls and cat, using Java.

5. Translated articles of the Japanese Tagbangers Blog into English.

On the first day at Tagbangers, I had very little knowledge about Javascript and almost none about Java and Git. I had never imagined that I would be able to build a calculator from scratch or replicate UNIX commands from scratch. I didn't even know what UNIX commands were, what git was. 

Considering this and the fact that I have accomplished the items 1-4 on the list above, I think I have grown A LOT during the past month.

All of this was possible because of the great environment I am able to work in, and the huge support by the members at Tagbangers. Every single person here is so warm and welcoming, and I absolutely love the atmosphere here. It's such an honor to be able to come here every weekday as an intern. I appreciate Mr. Ogawa (CEO of Tagbangers) so much. 

I still have so much to learn, but there is not much time left. I'll be leaving Japan in February to go to a university in Australia. Until then, I will embrace every single moment and do my very best to learn as much as possible. 

I'm sorry this article is not well constructed. Honestly it's quite hard to summarize a month in an article. But starting from this week, I'll be writing an article per week to summarize the things I've learned in that week. Hopefully that'll be easier and I'll be able to write better articles. So if you're reading this, stay tuned!
