This is the first in a series where SimplySocial team members describe their first month of work.
First of all, my previous experience as a software developer consisted of working with the .NET platform – and as you might know, SimplySocial is built on PHP and Python, which is quite a different world. So I had to learn new technologies from scratch.
Honestly, I had absolutely no problem with this. Valentin guided me through some very useful steps. I must say thank you to him. I can say that I had that feeling that this will be highly rewarded someday which made things a lot easier – by being highly motivated.
Let’s talk a bit about the team. For the first few weeks we were four guys working. After that Lisa came and Vlad also came soon after her. Now we are actually 7 passionate individuals trying to do our best to help this company and us. The feeling that we are growing is there. In the meantime, the news of getting our first customer was extremely appealing. I think it was a very important factor in everyone’s confidence and motivation.
In the end, I want to say that I personally think that we are building a great product that we’ll be proud of, and I am very happy to be part of it.
