Published on Aug 28th, 2019 11:52 PM

The Pre-internship program coined StartNG is a program that prepare newbies into tech for the HNG internship program. It started on the 14th of august with a mail to join the slack workspace and so far it has being reality of eye opening and new experiences with every minute of my being on the slack platform.

WHAT I HAVE LEARNED SO FAR

In the course of the internship i have learnt alot but i will mention a few in this post.

1.TEAMWORK

As the name implies has to do with distribution of of part of a job to different individual working together to achieve a set goal.I have learnt that with team work we can achieve our target before the stipulated time and also to always respect and value other people opinion.

2.QUICK THINKING AND DEEP THINKING

This has inculcated in me the ability give fast and correct suggestions on how to solve any issue or challenge at hand.

3.I have learnt how to pay attention to details and look out for instruction within a chaotic environment.

4.Quick iterations - you think you are on track? ask and confirm in time. so you don't spend time beating around sambisa forest.

5.No knowledge is a waste and every challenge is an opportunity to gain new knowledge. In failure or success, i should make everything a learning opportunity.

WHAT I WISH TO LEARN

Improve on my web development skills

How to be a good team leader

The core values of being a developer

Understand app development process from scratch

How to build a brand from my chosen career.

Comfortably and efficiently manage projects using necessary tools like pivotal, cloudinary, github, etc.

WHAT I WISH SHOULD BE IMPROVED

First of all i want to say i big thank you to the founder Mr Mark Essien and Team(Mentors) working on this project, well i would like the team to work on the youtube videos as the picture is blur when watching on the phone and also if the could be time table for class so that one would program his/her schedule to be able to meet up with classes.

To my fellow interns i leave you with these motivational quotes:

The master has failed more times than the beginner has even tried.

Every beginner possesses a great potential to be an expert in his or her chosen field

If your passion does not keep you sleepless, you can't be a good beginner. When passion itches, a great hand scratches... Wake up, it's your time to rise above idleness!

Masters today, were beginners yesterday, so begin now

Do not wait to become a master to begin; begin to become a master.

The master is a beginner that never gave up.
