From September 2020 until the end of the year, I was assigned to the IT-OPS department.
In the area I worked in, internal applications and prototypes for our SharePoint were developed with the help of the Microsoft Power platform.
At the beginning I was introduced to what would happen in the next weeks and I was also assigned a task, the design of an application with the help of which everyone can unsubscribe or resubscribe from distribution lists for e.g. internal newsletters.
In this context, I was not only taught how to design user-friendly application interfaces with Microsoft PowerApps, but also how to develop/script with PowerShell and how to access interfaces such as SharePoint lists or the Active Directory.
Furthermore, I was taught project/time management skills by organizing this project but also interacting with internal customers. Another important point of my time at IT-OPs was the teaching of presentation basics to prepare for our oral final exam, in which we also had to present our final project. For this purpose, I was allowed to prepare a presentation every two weeks on a topic of my choice and then present it in front of my colleagues.
Despite the current situation, due to which I was only employed in the home office, I was able to gain a good impression of the team and was always well supported when I had questions.
All in all, I really had a lot of fun during my time at IT-OPs and was also able to learn useful skills that will not only be useful for my final exam.
