What was your role at your most recent internship?
I was a software developer intern at Salesforce. Salesforce is a CRM solution company. Thus, it's basically a B2B company. It provides a set of applications for managing customers, revenue stream, HR, or whatever is needed as a company. We call it Salesforce platform. And the platform provides several levels of APIs. Then, developers in customer companies build apps upon the platform with given APIs. My job was to build those APIs for the developers in customer companies.
