Here at Tresata we’re pretty positive we’ve got the best interns around. Tresata interns may be temporary, but they’re a part of our team and we work them accordingly. They get their hands dirty with live real-world projects and work side-by-side with our permanent team members. Our “Intern Update” series will introduce you to this ambitious bunch and what they’ve been working on this summer…
