As a fresher, I was looking for an interesting opportunity to begin my career. It was at that point I cleared the first round for iCanCode and was called for the further rounds. I was very confident and cleared the screening. In due course, I received a confirmation email. I was in! With a lot of joy, I celebrated this news with my family.
But this is not the ending. This is where my journey with iCanCode begins.
Located at the heart of Hi-tech City, iCanCode is an avenue for coding, learning, recreation, and diversity. As my first day was closely approaching, I was nervous. However, we were made comfortable right from day one. On our first day, we participated in an icebreaker game which gave us an opportunity to know and interact with the associates and seniors. Everyone received and encouraged us very well.
Soon, our training began with Linux Operating system. We journal our learning progress in Coding Labs, a portal where coders can code and learn different technologies, add coding challenges and explore various other things. As the learn kept going, I must also mention that I will never forget the day on which our CEO taught me how to use GIT commands which made me happier than the day I got selected or received my first paycheck. He is a great inspiration for us.
I am learning many new things and in this process, I’m also understanding my mistakes and committing myself to an improvement. Our mentors are a great support and we truly value their guidance.
Right from the beginning, we have been taking an active participation in various activities that aim to improve our skills and personalities. They really helped us in improving our communication skills and helped us in getting rid of the fear of public speaking.
What I like more about is its unique culture that believes in spreading knowledge. Everyone shares their knowledge by blogging, giving presentations. New Ideas are always welcome here and, we present our ideas in Ideathons. We are also participating in the Free Code Camp’s Hacker Month where we can learn hands-on coding in collaboration with other coders.
Apart from the great learning curve, we participate in many joyful events like T20 Cricket matches, potluck, outings, movie Screening, and celebrate festivals like a family.
In the first week itself, we got to know our colleagues and batch mates. We became friends in a less span of time. More than colleagues, we are like friends now.
It’s been almost 6 months since I began my journey with iCanCode. The exclusive demos, activities, learning scope has made me feel good about being associated with it.
I hope to build my skills, learn new things, and emerge as a better coder through iCanCode.
