Following on from our first successful year long placement with Gurpindervir from BCU, who ended up getting a first class pass for his degree (which we will happily take credit for if necessary), we had the pleasure of meeting Tom who acted as the replacement placement, from BCU who would work with us for a year.
Tom worked with us throughout 2016 and left us in August 2017 to resume his studies, and complete his final year at university. Coming to us with a limited knowledge of Unity, we started by placing him on tutorials to get him up to speed with the process of making apps using Unity3D. After a few weeks, he was able to come off tutorials and be placed on live projects.
Throughout his placement, Tom grew as an individual working with members of the team on multiple projects. Tom collaborated with members of the team ironing out issues and bugs encountered during development as well as bringing some larger mobile application projects to life. He had the following to say about his placement;
“My time with VOiD Applications has been an incredible experience! I have had the opportunity to work with app development and learn the process of creating a mobile app.”
Thanks to the hard work from Tom we were able to move our projects forward quickly, and efficiently while simultaneously improving his Unity skills which would be needed throughout his final year, and during his working life. One of the projects he pushed forward the most was the Donghua Chain Identification App.
Tom had the following to say about his placement;
“I have greatly improved my former programming knowledge to build professional mobile business apps for many clients. Having no previous experience working with the Unity Engine the VOiD team were very supportive in helping me learn and build the skills needed to work on different projects. I have worked on three projects from start to finish, and I am very proud of what I was able to accomplish given my very limited experience before joining. Looking back at the year I have spent with VOiD Applications I now have a much greater understanding of how a company within this industry functions which has better prepared me for a future career in software development.”
The team at VOiD would like to thank Tom for all his hard work throughout the year, going above and beyond all our expectations. We would welcome him back in a heartbeat. Thanks Tom!
