This blog is part of the series: Outreachy Dec 2019 round: CC Vocabulary

This will be my last blog as an Outreachy intern. My watch as an intern has come to an end. I am glad I chose the Creative Commons community or rather am glad Creative Commons chose me (am not the chosen one). I have gained a lot of valuable knowledge, skills and I am more confident in my abilities.

Summary of My Internship with Vocabulary

Whats next?

I will continue to contribute to CC open source projects especially to the Vocabulary project that I have become a part of. I would love to see the application of Vocabulary to the development of other CC platforms and applications. I also want to apply the skills that I have acquired to get a full-time software developer position.

My special appreciation to Outreachy for this opportunity, the entire CC team especially those I worked with, My mentors Hugo Solar and Dhruv Bhanushali for their guidance, direction, and help whenever I got stuck, also to the Director of Engineering Kriti Godey for always checking up on me ensuring I had a wonderful internship experience.
