Last week marked the end of the PEY journey for the 2015-2016 interns and the effects are already being felt. The environment is a lot quieter (the new interns aren’t quite as ‘involved’ as the last batch), however, that may not always be a bad thing. While I will miss their company, I am sure that everyone will still get along just fine and work will continue chugging along at a good pace.
As for me personally, I have inherited all the leftover work from the interns, so at least that should keep me busy for a while. I finally finished the 3D CAD objects in my previous post, and now I have moved onto another project involving being able to import data from other programs into Wysiwyg. It’s a pretty interesting task because each software manages their data a specific way – for example, “position” is defined by a specific location in three dimensional space, however, objects do not have a specific reference point. One software may define the position of the centre of the object whereas another might define it from a different location. It is my task to accommodate the reference points of several popular software suites to ensure data is imported as expected. While doing so, I am getting a better understanding of linear algebra, which was also a subject I struggled with in school. I can say soon I will be an expert! … Hopefully.
