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.”

At the end of the internship period, AgilizTech provided the internship experience certificates and as a small token of appreciation for their contribution, HDFC Gift Cards, while wishing them fruitful careers.

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.
