    Problems per-say or tend to be not with coding but politics

    Any developer can become better by continually learning something new often e.g. hourly, daily, weekly etc.

    Always has something different to offer each day.

    Learn the fundamentals, know them inside and out with coding. Become proficient with designing solutions e.g. agile development. Learn how to work with databases away from code.

    It always is different each day.

    Long hours of work/and-or learning

  • 1. What is the name of the company you work for? Athena Engineering Services

    2. What is your job title? Software Engineer 

    3. How long have you had your current job? 6 Months

    4. How do you use computing in your job? I create custom software for coiled tubing operations. 

    5. What kinds of problems do you encounter in your work? Completely depends on the day. Usually we get users who want added features to the app or bugs that we didn't catch, and we go fix them!

    6. How do you solve these problems (Visual Basic Script, Visual Basic Apps, Java Script, etc.)? I use vb.net, entity framework, web api, javascript, jquery, apache cordova, sql, visual studio ... the list goes on.

    7. How do you think you can become a better problem solver? Make mistakes, then you'll know not to make that mistake again. Eventually you'll make so many mistakes, the solution will come naturally haha.

    8. What do you like about your job? I get to create something that didn't exist before.

    9. What are some important things I should be sure to learn in school to help myself be prepared for problems I will encounter in a computing job once I graduate? Data Structures, programming fundamentals. Don't get hung up on syntax or a "favorite language".

    10. Who do you solve problems for? Coiled tubing operators

    11. Do you enjoy problem solving? Of course!
