I have been lurking on this website for quite some time. Then, I thought it is time to participate in all this and introduce myself:
My name is Victor and on this day I have been doing the job as a developer for exactly half a year. Before, I was a student of mathematics. Therefore, I had to learn coding in a professional environment. (Yeah, research can also be professional, but refactoring and tests were a rarity!)
It turns out that I find a lot of fun in what software developers do. They do not only find solutions but they also do it together. And everyday there is so much more to learn! This is when we come back to the starting question:
What does a mathematician say to a developer?
In my case, it is mostly: Questions. Questions to my colleagues and supervisors. Questions about coding style, questions about agile (or not so agile) software development. And that is what this site is about, right? Asking questions to get smarter together!
Do you stumble upon mathematics from time to time?
