I have a Bachelor’s degree in Information Technology. I have been a software developer for about 8 years now. I also had a small stint at teaching while I was on sabbatical after my son was born.
What are you doing at Tacton?
At Tacton, I’m a software developer who deals with many parts of the software development process. Just to describe a few:
1. Talk to clients to get what their software needs are. This happens by understanding their business and finding a technical solution for it.
2. Designing the solution
3. Implementing the solution
4. Testing the solution
In this process, there are enormous opportunities to learn more about the business processes of our clients and let technology help them achieve their goals.
When did you know that you wanted to work with programming?
For me it was when I was in the last years of schooling. I wasn’t aware of what programming was about. But I was intrigued by computers, internet and everything around them. My experience with programming wasn’t until I started my bachelors course. I took me couple of months to get a hang of it. But then it was only more exciting every time to write code for assignments and projects. It’s so much fun to make life easier with technology!
