Practice counts

Practice counts practice counts RIB IMS

I have been with IMS for a little over a year now in the Training as application developer. I had already done programming at school and therefore spent a year in it right after graduating. Computer-I studied engineering. But I wanted more practice. I got it at IMS, that's for sure.

I started my apprenticeship in August 2017, together with Maren. We do a lot of work as a team. That's good because we can support each other and the four-eyes principle helps to detect mistakes early.

After a short time, we were both programming directly for everyday life. First we created Telerik reports, which involved a lot of SQL to do. In between, we also programme in Java Script, for example dashboards and evaluations.

Work for the practice

In the beginning, we taught ourselves JavaScript and jQuery in free phases out of curiosity, but then we got workshops with colleagues, also on C#, so that today we can deliver solid results. We often work on tasks that are created specifically for a client. The trust that is placed in us is great. And it's also fun.

This is especially true when customer orders look simple on paper but are not so easy to implement under the bonnet. When it works out and the customers are happy, it's even more motivating.

Friendly handling

What helps me a lot as a trainee is that all the colleagues are very approachable. You can actually always go out with a question and come back with an answer. The relationship is friendly, especially with the younger members of the team. In the breaks, at foosball or breakfast every second Friday, the atmosphere is relaxed and fun. And the bosses are relaxed too.

I can also see that the training at IMS is good at the vocational school. In comparison, Maren and I are doing well, we both have a 1 average. Of course, the first year of the apprenticeship is just over, but I think we will continue to be well supported at IMS for the next two years. For example - as I said above - with a view to SQL. And through colleagues like Illya, some of whom also went to the same vocational school.

Again IMS?

With the experience I have gained in the meantime, would I have to decide again whether I want a Training at IMS I would definitely say "yes".

All the best

Since August 2017, Rico has been training to become an application developer. Before that, he looked at computer engineering at university for a year, but practice is just better 🙂 In the meantime, Rico is a Telerik pro, knows his way around C#, JavaScript and HTML and is also pretty good at kicking things - anything goes at IMS.
