#spreadyourwings is a series of interviews with our talented interns who have chosen Ailleron as the location for their professional development. Today we would like to introduce you to Daniel, who did an internship in the corporate banking team. What are his impressions, what did he learn and what did he like best? Continue reading!
What did you do during your internship at Ailleron? What were your tasks?
During my internship at Ailleron, I was a Java backend developer. I was involved in maintaining and developing complex banking applications that could support hundreds of thousands of users every day. I also took part in SCRUM meetings which allowed for smooth communication and collaboration with my team.
What did you learn during your internship?
Most of all, the internship taught me that the job of a programmer is not limited to writing code. Communication is also important as it is a critical factor in influencing team goal relationships. If someone wants to become a good programmer, self-taught at home or at university, they may have a problem with these skills. Fortunately, my team at Ailleron worked with SCRUM, which was a huge plus for me. In terms of technical skills, I had the opportunity to work with the latest microservice architecture technologies. If anyone is looking to grow with Java and the Spring Boot framework, Ailleron is a good place to start.
What made you decide to take part in our internship?
Hands-on experience is vital in the IT industry. As a computer science student, I was of the opinion that the knowledge I had acquired during my studies was worth testing in practice, which is why I applied for an internship at Ailleron for the summer. The reason for the application was a description of what the company is doing and which technologies it uses in the development of its applications, which corresponded to the modern trends of the industry. IT technology is evolving so quickly that I realized that what I learned in college was just the tip of the iceberg and that something new should be learned all the time. In Ailleron I had the opportunity to develop myself further and was always up to date with the latest IT. In addition, the internship was paid for and completely remote.
How did you like the atmosphere and the work in Ailleron in general?
The working atmosphere was very positive. As with SCRUM, deadlines can be a bit stressful and as an intern I often got stuck without a solution. Fortunately, I had experienced programmers on my team who never refused to help me (on the contrary, they often suggested asking more questions).
Would you recommend an internship in our company? Why?
The internship at Ailleron is highly recommended. Ailleron is one of the best places to go if you want to acquire valuable practical knowledge. From the point of view of a person who has never worked in IT before, I can assure you that you will be able to build a solid and stable knowledge base in the field of IT in these intensive 3 months.
