Specialization 1 module ends today with work shadow presentations
So the 4 weeks of Specialization 1 are over. During this time, where I chose to dwell into technology and programming as a specialization, I discovered another side of me I didn’t know. This was that I actually enjoy to code, I believe this is because now I understand the why and how of using certain elements in code, and know what they mean. This was really important for me, and was the key for me to ‘crack’ this fear I had of coding.
Specialization 1 was one of my favorite modules so far, because I learnt the most, and got to spend 5 days in a real working environment thanks to the compulsory work shadowing that I completed at the fascinating Aer Studio (photo above) in Barcelona alongside José, Hector & Daniel.
Below are some images from yesterdays presentation about the three Toolboxes we had to complete, also compulsory for this module, and from today’s presentations, regarding our work shadowing experience. As part of this last presentation today, I showed a video of an interview I filmed at Aer Studio, kindly conceded by José, Hector & Daniel that I will be posting here soon.
It’s day 3 already, of work shadowing at Aer Studio. Going way too fast unfortunately.. :(
This has been my amazing working desk at the office this week, kindly lent to me by the equally great team at Aer Studio. Today I made some progress with one of the final toolboxes for the Tech Specialization. Yupi!
While at Aer Studio these last days I’ve been introduced to many data visualization sites and communities, that they collaborate very often with. Data visualization can be stunning, as well as useful and powerful. Also very interesting to build, and I hope to be able to know enough programming to create something like this.
