At the end of our time in the learning office, the trainees and students from the first year of the apprenticeship were assigned to the various departments of the company. I joined Data Distribution.
This department, one of the longest-standing in the company, programs in Java. After learning the basics of C# and Python in the learning office, this time it was my turn to read the Java documentation to get an idea of the syntax of this renowned programming language. Following this, I was given tasks by my instructor which I had to implement in a project. Through this, I learned not only Java, but also the rules to be followed in “professional” programming and the structure that an application should have depending on its purpose.
Usually, trainees are assigned small PBIs during their time in a department so they can get used to SCRUM and experience what it’s like to be part of a development team. Since my department is currently working with PBIs that are a bit too complex for my current skills, I wasn’t assigned one, but I was still able to learn and gain a lot of experience through my own projects, and that’s what rotating through the different departments is all about.
Starting in September, I will be working in the Order Manager department. I’m already looking forward to meeting new people and learning new topics.
