I was a Java and open-source enthusiast and a geek when I was starting my internship. I never thought out of that scope. What I looked for was mostly to implement,code using the features provided by the frameworks and libraries, there the intention was to how ever deliver each and every features of the so called frameworks and libraries. So I was failing at delivering the true value of a solution.
Next I was given a chance to work on a customer project (I won’t be sharing more details on this since they are confidential). There I was asked to build a wordpress plugin using PHP, and this was a totally different domain for me though I had worked with PHP. I could get some what of a exposure working with customers and I was guided and supervised throughout the project to achieve my targets by Samudra Kanankearachchi, Software Architect at 99x Technology. And I could successfully complete my work in that and deliver a product with value.
Then I joined with an internal project which was requested to be delivered within a short time period. With this project I could get the experience of working under a pressure. I think our team could reach the targets on time. And during this I got a chance to work on a separate domain, which is normally carried out by IM (Infrastructure Management) personnel. That is to configure a production web server running linux. I really enjoyed and put a considerable effort on this due to the lot’s of configurations there.
Finally it’s the end of the internship and I thought to write this blog post because I am totally satisfied about it and I can proudly say that I could make lot’s of dots in my life during the stay at 99x Technology.
