It’s been a fun and exciting journey. I’ve had my struggles, but I’ve also had my fair share of successes. Working at the startup has taught me how to be independent, but at the same time, know when to ask for help. Looking back on it now, I feel like I truly learned a lot about what is means to be a programmer. Not just the coding aspect, but also having the interactions with the co-workers and the weekly group meetings. Would I want to go back? No. Not because I don’t like the company or my experience there, quite the opposite in fact. I don’t want to go back because I’m ready to move on. That chapter of my life has ended. I’ve saved all the knowledge I could from that opportunity and now I’m ready to start a new chapter of my life.
