This week's book giveaway is in the Agile and Other Processes forum. We're giving away four copies of Real-World Software Development: A Project-Driven Guide to Fundamentals in Java and have Dr. Raoul-Gabriel Urma & Richard Warburton on-line! See this thread for details.
i was hired for a small company (4ppl) as a Java programmer, the company is sms content provider (users subscribe to receive sms messages about health, news, weather...), there is only one programmer and he is not very keen in java , my job is to design a web application for the application server that is responsible for message sending, and to manage the server itself.
do you think its wise to work in startup company with little experience , since i am also a fresh graduate?
do you think this experience (broad skills, not working in large teams) will be good for future employers?
i am so lost, any wise advice for you folks will be great
Please use real words when posting to the forums. Abbreviations such as "exp" in place of "experience" only serve to make your posts more difficult to read and less likely to generate useful responses.
It sounds like an excellent learning experience to me. In such a small environment, you will get to wear many hats, and your input is likely to be taken into account with so few people to be dealing with.
But of course, you will only get out of it what you put into it.
Agree with Bear. You tend to learn more in all facets of the software development process in a smaller company. It could be challenging, but if you stay focussed and motivated, you will have a very valuable hands-on experience to go on to do bigger and better things in the future. Good luck.
