The idea was to integrate ERP5
thus providing users with alternative to ZEO while instantiating ERP
Time and freedom one gets while working on the assigned projects.
Evening birthday parties, team outings, trying all kind of cuisines during
Working on new and different kind of machine (chromebook!).
Patience, Persistence, Perseverance. Tech Stack at nexedi is probably
the most custom stack I have seen, so getting accustomed with the tech
and understanding it well enough to make meaningful contribution gives
you real sense of being an engineer.
This is quite tough to answer. I did try to share my knowledge of native
Indian language and rubiks cube with fellow interns.
While working on the integration I also worked on review and better
integration of NEO in slapos along with addition of new features like
support of TokuDB engine and automatic start of newly created cluster.
Fortunately I was also able to complete the final goal and now it is
possible to instantiate 1 NEO DB inside an ERP5 instance.
Everything at Nexedi is open source, not a lot of companies can claim this.
The learning process and culture at Nexedi; You are encouraged to tackle
problem on your own and learn things by doing them(in my opinion : the
best way to learn anything). You get lot of freedom to throw and discuss
any ideas that pop up in your mind.
Nexedi is quite international with people from all around the globe, I
got to learn a lot from my co-workers.
Lille is probably the best place if you want taste of both French and
Belgian culture. Being a student city there always something to do in the
evenings and weekends. Also there is good amount of English speakers here
which made it easier to talk with locals (I did try to learn some French
though). People in Lille were quite kind to us, they made us feel
home (some even played Indian music to make us more comfortable).
