An Introduction to Coders of the West
a State of Wyoming technology internship program
by Caden Masters, Sheridan High School
Hello! My name is Caden Masters, and I am a programming intern for Gannett Peak Technical Services, as part of the Coders of the West initiative in the state of Wyoming! Our project is about fostering coding, programming and technical skills among up and coming Wyoming students who want to succeed in the 21st century coding world. I was brought into this program through a two-week coding “bootcamp” program promoted and advertised at my school, and I was later recruited into an internship as part of this. I, myself, have been assigned primarily to collecting data for projects we’ve done, such as the bus routes on a route app we created. As well, in the later days of the project, I worked a lot on some code created to help parse data on companies I located while looking for places with employment possibility in Wyoming, using python to search documents with our information in it.
As of late, I’ve been creating tools to sample information for a project based on education and employment in Wyoming, and this tool has been a unique project and experience for our team to work on to create content for. The project is focused on employment and corporations in this state, showing information about possible careers in it, from Kennon Aircraft Covers to Steady Stream Hydrology. The aim of this project is to help individuals in Wyoming obtain career guidance on any kind of employment they wish to. We are currently using a unique API designed by the state of Wyoming that stored previously-gathered information on the corporations in Wyoming.
