After one year of studying programming I finally can see what’s being dev in a company — as an intern for now.

Welcome in Norway they said

I just passed my first week in Dolittle and I already can say that it’s a big difference from what I expected, for the better.

Concretely I thought that I will have to work in an old school way of thinking because I think that a lot of companies are like that… Not this one.
I come from a school with some innovative ways of learning so i’m pretty glad to be in an ambitious work team who wants to do some new things and be a pioneer in what they do. That’s how I see that.

This is a Wa.. What?

A Wasm project

I think like most of beginners and a some of older devs, I didn’t know what was WebAssembly before coming here.
However this is what I had to do for my first task.

“ This app works with wasm but run time is too long, make it shorter “

And I said : “OK I’m in!”

So I started looking for what this strange new thing was and tried to understand how this is working. I did find a few docs indeed, but not as much as I’m used to and it was the hardest to find docs for exactly what I needed: C# & WASM, the good way to compile and so and so….
I still do not understand all of the aspects of the application running on WASM so it’s a big challenge for me.

Of course I love being challenged but usually I can read docs and a lot of cool technologies are already existing to do pretty everything in all the classics languages. But here… Not 2 years old yet and in version 1.0, what better?

It makes me glad to work on a young technology, but it’s still really difficult to find what I need to optimize the application.
Indeed, I’m working on a “finished” project and it is not possible to remake it in another way, and anyway I don’t know how to😀.

Of course I learned a lot in a few days and I’m still learning, but for sure I need further explanations and researches on the subject.

On a good way

In the next weeks, solutions will probably be found and I think that the work for that is on the good way.

We think that the most important thing we as developers do is to deliver value to our customers. It is important for us to focus on the value of the software, and spend less time on infrastructure and scaffolding.
