Intern Intros: Yimeng Li, Engineering Intern
July 28, 2016

In this blog series, we’re introducing Sunbird’s interns for Summer 2016. This last post shares the perspective of Yimeng Li, our Engineering intern who recently completed a master’s degree from Rutgers University.
I completed my master’s degree in computer engineering from Rutgers in January 2016. My undergraduate major was electrical engineering, and I obtained my bachelor’s degree in 2013.
I started to learn to code in my junior year, and it was then that I knew what I wanted to do in the future. That’s why I switched from electrical engineering to computer engineering. Over the past two years of study, I gained strong knowledge and background in computer science and engineering, and I have been eager to find an opportunity to put my theoretical knowledge into practice.
I haven’t had work experience in the software industry before, and I don't have a complete blueprint of future. So, I'm pretty excited for this summer internship at Sunbird Software. It will expose me to startup culture and an agile development environment with the opportunity to gain industry experience and contribute to a product used by real-world customers.
In addition to learning agile development, I’m looking forward to automated testing using tools and sharpening my Ruby and RSpec skills. What’s more, I hope I can make a more specific career plan after several months’ internship.
