I worked on developing kernel for integration of erp5 and jupyter,
i.e, execution of code from jupyter frontend in
This helps us to execute even big data stored in erp5 database and show plots in
jupyter frontend. Also, we can use it to debug erp5 context objects and
play with them.
The chance to use advanced technologies being used via cloud (softwares
like jupyter, erp5 on slapos) and learn from some talented colleagues
and mentors was a really nice experience for me both in technical as well
as professional way. We spent some good time together going out and the
fact that I was working with people from 9-10 nationalities, it was
great to know more about different cultures and learn. Also, all of us
were working on Chromebooks, which helps you know how to develop putting
everything in the cloud.
The most important thing that I learnt for being an engineer is the
methodology to find and solve bugs by yourself and learn a whole new
thing by practice. Its easier to ask experienced people regarding a bug
and get it solved, but the real benefit is when you dive in to the
codebase and reach the root cause of the problem. It might take you some
time, but in the way, you'll gain knowledge of new tech stack,
practices, etc which is what help you be a real engineer.
Hard to answer this one from my perspective. Other than the fact that
you can wear a scarf on a sunny day also (Hey Sven!), I think it would
be asking more questions, have a good rapport with other colleagues
and learning to adapt fast might be some.
Well, there are lot many things to mention in this regard, but the one
which I liked most was that trainees were treated almost equal to the
full time colleagues. We were given full access to explore, learn, try on new
technologies, ask our doubts and develop. This always make a difference
because as a student, we always want to try more and new things, and
being able to do so in a company is really nice.
Lille is an awesome place to live in. I might not consider myself as
an expert in saying that, but according to me, its a smaller version of
Paris, with addition of Belgian culture, delicious food (specially Welsh,
yum!!). Thanks to its young population there are lot of English
speakers, so for a first time visitor speaking English in France, it won't be hard
to communicate and enjoy your life there. Though, its equally good to
learn French (which I didn't, alas!).
