A Conclusion to My Internship
When I began this internship three months ago, neither myself nor my mentor had a clear picture of what I would produce, or how the goals of the project would change as time progressed.
The high-level goal of the internship was clear: to automate web accessibility testing. How best to do this, however, was not.
The first few weeks, as well as the weeks prior, were mostly spent on research.
I first needed to understand the problem domain, and then understand the tools available, as well as how to use them.
I had done some python programming before, but my work on this project was a side of python I had not delved into.
I had never used pytest or selenium, and knew nothing about python packaging (or accessibility, for that matter).
Prior to the start of the internship, I took a Udacity course on web accessibility, and wrote some simple tests using selenium and python.
