With summer coming to a close, it’s time for our first-ever software developer COOP intern, Akshay Bhatia, to head back to school at the University of Waterloo. Before he left, Akshay shared some highlights of his four-month work term at Sidi.io:
Working at sidi.io was my first professional work experience and I personally believe it couldn’t have gone any better. Starting off the job, I was very nervous since I had no idea about how things work, what to say, what not to say etc. However, a special thanks to the amazing team for being understanding and supportive in making me feel at ease so quickly.
Coming out of this internship, I have not only gained more technical knowledge, but also learned about the professional workplace environment. I didn’t just learn more about software development, but also about other valuable skills like setting SMART goals, communicating technical information and ideas to people with an expertise in a different field. I am confident that this experience will be extremely beneficial in the future, and I am going to look back and thank Sidi.io again, for everything it has given me.
I want to give a special thanks to Roy, my software development Manager, for being an excellent mentor, guiding me through different things every step of the way, and making this journey very enjoyable and smooth.
Sidi.io also gave me the opportunity to work from my home in India, which is in a completely different timezone, and I am grateful for the team being so flexible.
