My experience as the first Customer Success Intern

I wanted to give a little background about myself prior to giving my overall experience at Concurrency. I came from and IT technician background before joining Concurrency. I craved change and one thing that I really wanted was to be challenged. A few months ago, I found out that I enjoyed project management and wanted to go down that career path. The problem was that it was a huge role change and trying to figure out how to make that transition. I had no prior business background, so I was already at a disadvantage- or that’s what I thought.

Journey to teaching Project Management (Pt. 3)

One of the most important components to understand about project management- is that it requires leadership. This is something that I am still working on in my own personal development in and outside this internship- so teaching it is not realistic at my current state. What I can do is share some finding’s based on research I’ve done for my own education. I recently read an article from the project management institute titled “Learning to Lead Chaos”. I combined a few of the paragraphs that were from that article that really stood out to me.

Design patterns are a lifesaver for Extensible Applications.

All of the major programming languages have evolved tremendously over the past decade especially to make the developers job easy. C# by Microsoft has been at the top of the game of adding plethora of easy to use and extremely powerful constructs ranging from async programming to functional programming. The well-developed programming languages have made it extremely easy for beginners to pick up coding and start developing applications quickly.

However, when developing extensible applications for the future, just using the language to write down logic for applications does not do the job well. We have to think about the overall design of the application for it to be able to scale and extend well. This means utilizing appropriate design patterns wherever applicable.
