What did you like best about your internship/co-op? What type of work were you doing?

I liked that we did the same type of work as a full-timer, which does not happen at every internship/co-op for my degree/university. Learned lots of new programming languages, and have been given time to program tests that allow for more efficient work flow, which I liked. Lots to do, and lots of variety in the work if you ask for it.
