Yaay!!!I finally made it. I am a female Java programmer who got to learn the hard way or what do you call learning on the job? Imagine how it feels to be expected to deliver on something you have little or no expertise or clue on…yeah, that was how I felt January 2014 when i joined the bank and ended up in the software development team. I really can’t blame anybody for ending up there because I remember personally going to my boss’s office requesting to be posted to the team. This was after an intensive or should I say grueling four months training in everything about banking but not technology!…Mehn!
The transition was difficult but the journey has been worth it to say the very least. I thought about this blog because I found out there are many graduates out there facing the same challenges that I faced when I started out. I have had couple of people call me to guide them on how to start, what programming language to choose and so many other questions. That is why on this blog, I will be sharing my thoughts, providing guidance to beginners, answering questions, teaching Java in an easy to understand way and learning from the community out there. It’s a sharing economy guys! I have till date two years of professional software development experience. However, I have been privileged to work with some of the brightest minds – and that includes my boss… lol.
Lets make learning fun by commenting, correcting and teaching each other.
