Please welcome the Great Scott Gadgets summer interns, Ellie Puls and Jacob Graves. They joined us at the beginning of June, and we are thrilled to have both of these bright students on our team. Ellie is a junior at CU Boulder and Jacob is a senior at CU Denver, and they are both majoring in Computer Science. They plan to write a short blog post every couple of weeks over the summer to let you know what they've been learning and what kind of projects they've been working on. Here's what they've been up to in their first couple of weeks:
"We helped finish a project in Python that fetches information about wireless devices from the Federal Communications Commission's website. We were able to take the information and put it into the user's home directory as well as into a user-friendly database. Additionally, we learned how to use the Lasersaur laser cutter and cut packaging for the new HackRF acrylic cases. Finally, we learned how to test HackRFs to look for any firmware or LED issues on the boards."
Going forward, we want to involve Ellie and Jacob in several of our software and firmware development projects (including GreatFET). They will be mentored by Mike and Dominic, and we hope that their time with us will amount to a meaningful educational and professional experience that they can take with them into their future careers.
