Flyers on the Go: Nikhil Joglekar
With the continued evolution of social media, crowd-sourcing has also gained in popularity. If you have a question or a need, why limit yourself to the relatively small network of people you know personally? There’s a whole wide internet-world full of people eager to share their intellectual and capital resources. This summer, University of Dayton graduate student Nikhil Joglekar will make his contribution to the world of crowd-sourcing as a Web Developer Intern at a start-up company called Resolve.
Nikhil began his graduate program in Computer Science at UD in Fall 2018, through UDayton Global. As an undergraduate student in India, he and some friends created a web site for fun. Although the site itself was short-lived, Nikhil’s passion for web development stayed, and he decided to pursue a graduate degree in the U.S. at UD.
More about the Resolve Internship Opportunity
Columbus, Ohio-based Resolve has developed a social web site that is more than just a place to gather – their goal is also to use this space to solve problems. As an intern, Nikhil might do development on the front-end user interface, back-end database, or both. He says he may be a bit more interested in the front-end user experience, though. “Web site development is more than just the programming languages,” says Nikhil. “It’s about creating an experience for the user that makes them have a genuine reason to stay on your site and spend some time on it. If they can easily find what they are looking for, they might get interested and stay awhile.”
