Our task was to transform raw data on thousands notable deaths scraped from Wikipedia into a
high-quality dataset that can be used for statistical analyses.
I learned hard skills like coding in Python, and leveraging advanced features in Excel and Google Spreadsheets. I also learned how to evaluate and compare proposed projects based on requirements and technology, as well as how IT organizations are structured. Finally, I learned soft skills like how to communicate efficiently with other teammates, manage deadlines, and mediate and resolve conflicts.
