DGAC/STAC - Internship
Jan. 2014 - July 2014
I was an intern at DGAC (French equivalent of the US Federal Aviation Administration) for 6 months. I worked on two different projets; a program used by airports to evaluate runway damage, and an online survey website.
- Rewrote a Visual Basic 6 program to Visual Basic .NET. This program is used by airports to assess runway damage.
- Developed an online survey website which is fast, highly customizable and ergonomic to survey European pilots with risk matrices.
Selectra - Internship
Jul. 2014 - Sep. 2014
I designed and developed a custom web-based Customer Relationship Management system (CRM) to replace an existing system that had become obsolete. I analyzed the needs of the company and how Selectra’s employees were using the old CRM program. While planning and implementing the project, I constantly questioned the user interface and surveyed employees’ experience to make sure everybody was at ease with the new software. I made the effort to keep the system accessible so that users with handicaps could still use the interface; for example, one employee was color-blind, so I optimized the color scheme to work well for both color-blind and non-color blind users. My project was eventually selected by the company’s management and was deployed to replace the existing CRM system, which reassured me in my development and design choices.
