Experience report Paul
Junior Software Developer
Immediately after completing my training as an IT specialist for application development, I was accepted into a project team that developed an existing software from scratch. The transition was relatively seamless. However, it took some time to get it up and running, because for the first time I was working 100 percent productively on the code. At the beginning, most difficulties were in correctly estimating the effort required for a requirement and scheduling the right time for implementation accordingly. However, this improves as experience increases. In addition, one has much more contact with software problems and errors, but one also exchanges information intensively with colleagues and learns faster and faster.
After another change to another project, I now work continuously with developers from other countries. This not only helps you to improve your English skills – you also get to know new perspectives on certain questions. In the new project I am now working in the backend (server side) as well as in the frontend (client side).
Productive work is demanding, but above all it is also stimulating. Thanks to regular meetings, you exchange ideas with colleagues and also have a good connection to each other. This is also where the different areas of interest come together, which manifests itself in an extensive pool of information and experience – from which you can draw together. The working atmosphere is a varied mixture of humour and professional seriousness – with a hint of gaming jargon – and therefore very pleasant.
