Since the end of March 2020, I have been assigned to the BU Fleet Manager team.
Here, an external application is being developed that digitizes and standardizes communication between workshops and fleets.
At the beginning, I got an introduction to the team, their tasks and projects. I was also allowed to choose right at the beginning which direction I wanted to go in, frontend or backend. I opted for the frontend and was then allowed to work on an independent project.
Here I have previously completed a tutorial on the basics of Angular and Typescript to gather prior knowledge for my upcoming project. The goal was to create a tool for entering application texts in order to be able to add and edit them. With this project I was able to consolidate my newly acquired knowledge and gain a lot of new experience.
After I finished the project, I was scheduled into the sprints. Here I was supposed to program different requirements for the application. This included, for example, adapting the layout of an existing page. Furthermore I fixed some bugs. By participating in the sprints, I got to know the team members better, as well as their way of working and dealing with each other.
Due to the current situation, we worked mostly in the home office, but I was still able to gain a good insight into the team and was always well supported when I had questions.
I am looking forward to my further time in the BU Fleet Manager and to my project work, which I will also write in this team.
