The Summer Internship

Programmers who possess a functional understanding of all methodologies, coding languages, and systems engineering principles are known as “full-stack developers.” A project’s required technologies and skills are referred to together as the “whole stack,” with each individual component being a stack. Stacks might be software-specific, web-based, or mobile. They built the web interface as well as the backend for a software. Such kind of skills I developed during my summer internship.

My leaders gave me a well-structured learning schedule and guided me as I learned more about development. I first reviewed my HTML and CSS knowledge and learned the following important topics, which I’ll list below:

CSS- Cascading Style Sheets

Box shadows: Adds shadow effects around an element’s frame. You can set multiple effects separated by commas. A box shadow is described by X and Y offsets relative to the element, blur and spread radius, and color.

Overflow: The overflow property specifies whether to clip the content or to add scrollbars when the content of an element is too big to fit in the specified area

Z-Index: When elements are positioned, they can overlap other elements.
The z-index property specifies the stack order of an element (which element should be placed in front of, or behind, the others

Combinators: A combinator is something that explains the relationship between the selectors. A CSS selector can contain more than one simple selector. Between the simple selectors, we can include a combinator.

Following is the template I designed using HTML and CSS

The next task was to learn the concept and functionality of javascript. Few Topics are listed below

JAVASCRIPT

Promise:A Promise is an object representing the eventual completion or failure of an asynchronous operation. It is a returned object to which you attach callbacks, instead of passing callbacks into a function.

Async/Await: The async and await keywords enable asynchronous, promise-based behavior to be written in a cleaner style, avoiding the need to explicitly configure promise chains.

Closure:Global variables can be made local (private) with closures.

Error Handling: The try statement defines a code block to run (to try).
The catch statement defines a code block to handle any error.
The finally statement defines a code block to run regardless of the result.
The throw statement defines a custom error.

Arrow Function:Don’t have access to new.target, super keyword and shouldn't be used as methods. Call,bind and apply method cannot be used

Template literals: We can use back-ticks(``) rather than quotes(“”) to define a string and allows multiline strings.

I did two mini-projects using these tech stacks

  1. Cat-fact

I used fetch API to fetch different cat facts from the api and display on the web page.

Cat-Fact

2. Crypto-sort

Crypto-sort

I fetched the crypto data from the api and sorted the data according to their price and names.

I developed my communication skills, my commitment to a task, and my admiration for my seniors during the course of my internship. I also appreciated hearing the stories they shared. Internship is a special opportunity that gives you the chance to fail, discover, understand, and develop.

Looking forward to gain more technical and practical skills.
