Another 2 Week Update

Post 10! We made it to double digits!
I have started a big refactor in my internship, we are taking out React-Materialize and replacing it with Material-UI. This will be done over the course of several weeks, right now I am finishing up replacing all the icons. It is generally a pretty easy task, there are just a lot of instances of the React-Materialize icons that need to be swapped. The issue is most of the times when I swap the icons I have to edit the styling as well. Again, not difficult but just a little bit more time consuming than we had originally thought. One huge plus is that this is making me jump around the code and understand better how all the components fit together. Previously, most of my work had been pretty isolated but this has been much bigger scale. I hope to be completely done with the icons this weekend and move onto some bigger features and tasks next week.
Ontop of this, I've also joined a coding group from reddit to help aspiring devs around the world toget together and collaborate on a summer project. I think this is a great way to network and meet people you may not have gotten to meet otherwise. I'm also excited to work on a team and create something awesome, everyone comes from all different backgrounds and uses different technologies so I see myself learning a lot from this opportunity.
