I was born and raised in Algeria, so I attended school there up until the age of 19, when I got the opportunity and decided to come to Japan.
In Algeria, I was a member of a scientific and tech club where we used to organize events like hackathons and talks. In Japan, I only had a few chances to participate in such events because my top activity was swimming in my university's swimming club.
When I work on anybot tickets or a project the flow is as follows:
Pick a ticket if none were assigned to me and understand the problem
If the ticket is about a bug then research & debug the code
Otherwise if it is about a feature then:
- Research & Implement
- Test the code
I get coffee. I review my tasks for that day. I attend the morning meeting. I go through my workflow. I have lunch with my coworkers. I continue my work. At the end of the day I use the nice massaging chair we have :)
When the feature I worked on gets released and people start using it and give positive feedback about it
When that annoying feedback finally vanishes from the product
When I know how to solve a problem quickly without taking a long time to do research about it.
Become faster at coding and at solving problems
Write more secure code
Implement more AI solutions and automate things
Hearwarming team and atmosphere
Implement things that will surely be used and be benefitted from
Meet up with friends
People who are open, funny, cool and especially nerd people 🥸 with whom I can talk about math, the latest tech, the singularity..etc
