When I joined iCanCode, it was one of the most important turning points in my life. With almost 6 months here, I figured it was time for me to share my experience with my fellow coders and aspirants.
Like every fresher, I dreamt of being a part of an organization where I could learn and develop my skills. I cleared the first round of screening and was invited to the premises for a technical round on 7th May. It was finally on 10th May I heard back from them. I was selected and was truly happy!
iCanCode is a part of Wavelabs Technologies, and functions from the Wavelabs premises itself. When I visited the office, I understood that it’s a newly constructed building with good infrastructure. There are several companies in our building which are associated with Wavelabs. On the top floor, we have an open area that we use for recreational purposes.
When I joined on 16th May, I was quite clueless as I didn’t know what to expect. It was my first brush with the corporate sector and I was barely acquainted with that world. We joined a team of 7 and became more of friends than acquaintances, quickly.
We are currently being trained as full-stack engineers. The fact that a full stack developer can work cross-functionally on the full “stack” of technology, i.e. both the frontend and backend makes this whole program challenging yet stimulating. Recently, we completed UNIX, HTML, CSS, JAVA, MySQL technologies and have embarked on Hibernate as a part of the program.
At iCanCode, all technologies are neatly categorized into tracks. With the end of every track comes a ‘Demo day’ where we have the opportunity to present our learnings and knowledge to our trainers and senior technology leads. This is one of the crucial days for us because we get to have all senior coders and dev bootcamp folks in one room, interacting and having conversations about the depth of our learning and the products that we build.
Right from the beginning, we’re actively participating in the activities and learning procedures that are intended to shape our personality than just our skills alone.
This new chapter of life is definitely working out for me as I position myself for turning into a full-stack engineer.
