A software developer internship probably won’t have you beating off the girls with a big stick, but what it will get you however is a solid base for your future, giving you a steady foundation upon which to build. And who knows, maybe from these humble beginnings in a software developer intern you’ll turn out to be the next Bill Gates. And THAT’S when you’ll be beating the girls off with a big stick.

What a software developer internship entails

First off, in a software developer internship, your job will be about fixing problems. Basic coding and testing programs is a big part of the day. It might not sound like much, but this basic coding will set the scene for EVERYTHING you do in your career. Remember, you have to walk before you can run. And you have to crawl before you can walk.

Once you’ve proven you can crawl as a software developer intern, then you’ll be ready to walk as a proper, weekly pay-check cashin’ software developer. Then you’ll be able to create code of your own, and this is when you can plan to make your millions and do some research into how much it would cost to buy that big stick. A job in software development at this early stage includes duties and skills such as:

  • Writing specific software coding that are required by the blueprints and development plans.
  • Creating scripts, testing transactions and testing cases. These tests are conducted to find errors in programs and a good software developer will be able to fix the code themselves.
  • Being able to write documentation which describes the operating and installation procedures.
  • Participating in code reviews and learn from given designs.

A software developer internship isn’t just about learning, it’s about selling yourself. Show what you can do to your employers and potential clients. Most universities encourage their students to intern with a software engineering company in order to get the experience, knowledge and to make contacts required to work in the world of IT.

What it takes to join Industry Connect

To be considered for a software developer internship with us here at Industry Connect, you need to have at least a basic knowledge of the main types of coding languages, such as HTML, Javascript and C#. The IT industry is also the fastest changing in the world, and so anyone who is serious about a software developer internship needs to be up to date with the current trends and technology.

A software developer internship contains step by step processes that include back-end coding development, layout, design, testing and implementation. In addition is the testing and fixing of problems found in the code of senior developers.  It is also the responsibility in a software developer internship to create and develop programs to maintain certain software applications. These are used to find bugs and speed up the fixing of problems.

A software developer internship is actually quite tough, and as an individual you must have great determination and drive to pursue this career. When it comes to finding a job, those with intern experience stand head and shoulders above everyone else, and will find it much easier to take that first step in buying that big stick.
