I worked with the not-for-profit organization Climate Central creating reports related to climate science. I worked as a software engineering intern mainly developing Climate Central’s app called WeatherPower. WeatherPower is a wind and solar energy forecasting app that displays the amount of electricity generated from wind and solar energy sources at different locations across the United States. I used Python programming language and Django, a Python web framework, to upgrade WeatherPower from the 2.0 version to the 3.0 version by testing the accuracy of forecast analysis, adding new features and updating the backend database.
