Abdil had known what he wanted for a long time. His passion for IT – and his witty and outgoing personality – attracted him to delaware. “I wanted to explore the world of consultancy. The opportunity to start in Ghent was a no-brainer for me. And then it turned out that I could commute using my scooter, which was a bonus,” he says.
New programming languages
In just three months, Abdil built a planning board application. “The new thing for me was that I had to build it as a web component. The entire code had to be reusable to another project and therefore usable everywhere. That’s why I first did three weeks of research to learn how web components work and choose the best one for my application.” Abdil emphasizes how his supervisor, Gilles, took him on a journey to learn how to use new skills. “For example, I learned to work with TypeScript and React, programming languages I had never worked with before but needed to use all the time at delaware.”
Young and dynamic
It was immediately clear that the Mobile, Web & IoT team was a great fit for Abdil. “The team is incredibly dynamic. It’s all young people who understand each other very well.”
And it works both ways. “New, young influences really add value to our team,” says Gilles, who took Abdil under his wing during his three-month internship. “Brains that haven’t yet been shaped by delaware look at what we do with fresh eyes and without prejudice,” he laughs.
