Campus to corporate 2017-18 – Internship at AgilizTech

More and more students are opting for internships while pursuing higher education these days. This is because an internship gives them a glimpse of the corporate world and serves as their career’s launchpad into the industry. Every year, AgilizTech invites students to join our internship programme and gain real-life experiences. This year, we were pleased to have Ms. P. Jerlin Juliet and Ms. G.R. Yogalakshmi from Madurai’s famed American College for an internship at AgilizTech.

Jerlin and Yogalakshmi, the third year MCA students who were interested in interning with us, came all the way from Madurai, Tamil Nadu, and quickly adapted to the fast-moving culture of Bengaluru and AgilizTech in December 2017. Over the course of 4 months they worked in various projects for AgilizTech – both internal and for clients.

In their words, “This has been a very fruitful experience for us, as we were able to apply our knowledge and work on live projects. We’re thankful to AgilizTech for providing us this opportunity.”

At the end of the internship period, AgilizTech provided them the internship certificate and as a token of appreciation of their hard work, gift cards. We would love to collaborate with more students for our projects, as this program helps us build a connect with the student community and enables them gain foothold in the industry.

Of a new year and new beginnings – we’ve moved!

Yesterday was Ugadi, a day that ushered in the new year in Karnataka, India. The new year is a sign of new beginnings, and refreshed minds. And on this positive note of good tidings, we are excited to announce that we’ve moved into a new office within Bangalore, from Koramangala to Jayanagar.

On the move

Our old office served us well and it is where we built great memories over the past two years. However, being a growing company, we had to shift to a new working space in JP Nagar – a new place to capture new memories.

Our new address is:

AgilizTech Software Services Pvt. Ltd.
No. 07/3, Second Floor, 18th Main Road, Jayanagar 9th Block, Bengaluru, Karnataka 560041

It has been an exciting two years for AgilizTech, and we look at this new location as the start of another chapter in our history. Do drop by sometime for a friendly chat and a steaming mug of coffee!

Campus to corporate – a glimpse of summer internship at AgilizTech

Internships is one of the key things that differentiate a fresher’s resume from a hundred others. More and more students are realizing this and taking the initiative to engage in productive, experiential internships while pursuing graduation. This summer, we had four promising interns from the coastal haven of Karnataka, Mangalore. Akshay, Alok, Ananthu and Arjun, the third-year students from NMAM Institute of Technology, Mangalore, joined our 40-day program of summer internship at AgilizTech.

About the project

The interns worked on AgilizTech’s in-house product, Stepout2Play. Under the mentorship of Shyamraj Sampath, the Technical Manager and the able guidance of Guddu Kumar and Niraj Kumar, Software Engineers working on the project, the four interns learnt to efficiently structure and modularize code for the web-based project. They worked extensively on the Java Play framework, JavaScript, JQuery, HTML5 and CSS3, to build applications for Stepout2Play.

Adapting to startup culture

While AgilizTech by itself has a very cheerful work atmosphere, the interns certainly added their charm. They took the initial ice-breaking session of stand-up performance in their stride, with one of the interns even mimicking the seniors! Balancing their playful nature with their dedication and commitment, they adapted themselves to AgilizTech’s lively startup culture – even burning midnight oil to meet the project deadlines.

The journey – from amateurs to professionals

As Shyamraj says, “When they first came in, they were unaware of coding standards and best practices. But they were eager to learn. They were like fresh clay, ready to absorb knowledge and mold themselves into better coders. We had a running joke, in fact – whenever I asked them if a module was ready they always said, “Yes sir, it is done.” But upon checking in, the code would immediately break. But once they could see the UI shape up, see their code come to life, they were motivated to learn more.” He sums it up by saying that the internship was their journey, a transformation from amateur coders to professional software developers.

In the words of the interns, “We gained a great deal of office experience working with the project team and got an insight into project development. It was an amazing experience and we thank everyone who helped us during our internship.”

These were the second batch of interns to have worked at AgilizTech and we would love to collaborate with more students for our projects, as this program helps us build a connect with the student community and enables them gain foothold in the industry.
