My name is Sean Duffy, and I’m an intern at ScraperWiki! I’ve just finished sixth form and in around a month’s time I’ll be starting my degree in Computer Systems and Software Engineering at the University of York. As well as programming, in my spare time I also enjoy electronics, reading and building/flying quadcopters.
When I heard about ScraperWiki on a Hacker News post earlier in the summer, I knew I couldn’t pass up the opportunity to inquire about an internship and now, in my fourth week, I’m glad that I did! In the past I’ve struggled to find relevant work placements close enough to where I live, so it was great to find such an interesting company only a short train journey away.
I’m very happy to have been given the privilege of an opportunity as good as this and I know I’ve already taken away a great deal of useful knowledge, skills and experience. I’m sure that the things I’ve learnt at ScraperWiki will serve me well during my degree and the rest of my career. I’ve enjoyed it here so much that it’s made me even more optimistic and excited about a career in software!
