Work Experience

I approached digital morphosis regarding a work placement towards the end of the academic year. Currently in year 12, I have recently sat my AS levels and am aspiring to apply to university to study a degree in Computer Science. Deciding a work placement in a real life company would be very beneficial for me, I contacted a number of Software development firms inquiring about a work placement during my summer holidays. Digital morphosis were quick to respond to my email and we set up a meeting for me to come down to their office. During the meeting we agreed on a 3 week placement and I took a look at some of their current projects.

Currently in my first week at digital morphosis, I've been working with Nodejs, an event-driven, server-side javascript environment and MongoDB, a document orientated database. Not having done much web based development, node has been an exciting new experience for me.

I've been allocated a small project which I will be working on for the duration of my placement. Hopefully I will have produced something functional after my 3 week period.
