Task-Force Week2 Experience

Here comes the second week's experience in task-force.
The second week was more technical but it also included soft skills.

Part I: Technical Skills

  • DevOps.

DevOps is a set of practices that combines software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). It aims to shorten the Software Development Life Cycle (SLDC).

I have found that having DevOps skills as a software developer is a good thing.

Why DevOps?
DevOps is important because it enables **faster development* of new products and easier maintenance of existing deployments.*

  • Git Workflow

A Git workflow is a recommendation for how to use Git to accomplish work consistently and productively.

A better git workflow is something software developers and DevOps teams are required to use because it is an essential tool to support good code quality and hence a good product.

Part II: Soft Skills

As a software developer, you don't need technical skills only. It's not all about writing codes and sort of.

This second week equipped me with :

  • Intercultural communication skills

Intercultural communication skills are an essential part of a healthy work environment and effective workflow.

Intercultural communication skills give you a better understanding of your workplace and co-workers and also help you to adapt to new work environments and prevent culture shock.

Concluding, I can say that I learned a lot of new things during the second week in the task-force that is not only needed by a software developer but also any person.
