Bart Ziengs, Software Developer, The Netherlands
The world is your oyster
Bart Ziengs is a developer with a study background in technical business administration and computer science. Before studying technical business administration, he completed his internship at Netcompany Netherlands in 2017. Afterwards he worked a part-time job at Netcompany while studying computer science at TU Delft. He has graduated since and is employed full-time at Netcompany as a developer.
Bart likes to think about solutions to technical problems and to work on them in a team. He is interested in new technologies such as .NET Core and Blazor. Besides web development, subjects like machine learning and AI have his interest. By working on projects in various study disciplines, he has gained experience with working in projects and is interested in the way processes can run as smooth and efficiently as possible.
As a developer at Netcompany you soon discover that development is an ambiguity in the programming world. In addition to coming up with technical solutions, Netcompany values soft skills. Working on communication, flexibility and time management, I gained a lot of insight into both the way I work and the way a large company works. Reflecting on methods and techniques are all part of the process. In my opinion, the diversity of work within software development is often underestimated. This diversity is exactly what has made my job challenging and gratifying for the past two years. In the end I think that for many people there is a place in the wonderful world of software and I personally look forward to seeing how the role of software in society will evolve in the coming years. I would like to say to the people who doubt whether software development is for them: "The world is your oyster".
