    Overview

  • 1. Please give an overview of your role and what this involves on a day-to-day basis.
  • During the placement my day to day varied from having daily scrum engagements with the customer during a sprint, to developing a solution alongside my college. When a sprint wasn't ongoing I would be learning the cloud tools available to see if they could be used in future engagements.


    Skills

  • 2. Have you learnt any new skills, or developed your existing skills?
  • One of the major skills I learnt during the placement was the ability to apply design thinking principles to ideate a solution with a customer, this gave a lot of value to the customers while making sure we identified the right pain point. I also learnt a whole suite of cloud tools.
