Hi. I'm a developer and a student of Ngee Ann Polytechnic.
I like code, music and dank memes.
Creating things has always been something I enjoy and will probably always do. I enjoy collaborating with other people to work on projects. In the past, I've written API's, desktop and cloud applications and CLI applications.
On the second year of my studies in Ngee Ann Polytechnic, I've had the opportunity to embark on a service learning project. During the project, I've gotten to meet students of Delta Senior Secondary school, interact and teach them on how to build a website. It was a very different project as we were teaching students with different needs and as such we had to take different approaches on how to get our point across.
Also, we've gotten to participate in a cybersecurity talk at SIM. And a SkillsFuture conference which was hosted together with WorldSkills Singapore.
The career networking was an event organised by ICT to help prepare students to network in a business-esque fashion and to open up internship opportunities to us by letting us interact with various startups and companies. The organisers had the students participate in various activities like debates and sharing to get us to talk to one another and for the representatives from the startups and companies to listen in on our interactions and our team dynamics. They would then state who they would like to meet after the activities from their observations.
During the networking itself, I managed to speak to representatives from Red Dot Payment and Dezain. I felt that many of the internship booths featured in the career fair are very interesting especially the startups with what different technologies and tools they use to push their product out to the market.
During the career fair, I’ve visited 2 booths which were IT based but vastly different in scope. For one, Kalpha, was a startup funded by Ngee Ann Polytechnic’s Sandbox. They developed an app where people can come together and share their knowledge. The other company, PayBoy, is a cloud solution to automate Human Resource operations.
I am still experimenting with the many types of technologies, I still do not have a particular niche in mind. However, it would most likely be within the technological side of IT as I am not as confident in my presentation and marketing skills. A goal of mine is to be able to work on projects that I love and with people that are supportive in a work environment and company I’m proud to work and stand for. Another goal is to be able to act on the many learning opportunities that arise and to be able to try many different things.
In the past, I’ve stuck with technologies I am used to working with like cloud servers and writing in Java/Kotlin. Recently, I’ve started to get into .NET Core and trying to pick up new concepts like machine learning. This will help me keep up with the current technologies and prepare me for the many more things I would or might need to learn when I start going into the industry and finding work.
