We would like to introduce you to Angel Buzov, from SoftUni, who will tell us what motivated him to choose to program and which were his most difficult moments and how did he deal with them. “I chose Software university because the training is extremely innovative and modern, the new trends in the technological world are monitored and the training program is being updated along with them. It emphasizes the practice, not the dry theories”. How does he succeed in just two years to become Junior Java Developer and what is the success formula? Read from our new blog article.
Hello, Angel! Can you introduce yourself with a few words for the readers of our blog?
Hello, my name is Angel Buzov and I’m from Gotse Delchev. I have been actively engaged in programming for about 2 years, a few months ago I graduated from Software University and now I am a Junior Java Developer
What attracted you to programming and do you have a favorite programming language?
I’ve always had a great interest in computers and how things work in the background. That was the main reason I started programming. I have studied several languages, but my favorite is Java, it’s easy to write, has good documentation, and runs on all platforms.
Why did you choose Software University and what was the atmosphere during the training?
I chose Software university because the training is extremely innovative and modern, the new trends in the technological world are monitored and the training program is being updated along with them. Everything is “straight to the point”. Moreover, something that I think is extremely important is that much emphasis is put on practice rather than on dry theories
What was the biggest difficulty for you during the program?
I do not think I had any major difficulties. Only my first attempt with object-oriented programming was a little more complicated, but with hard work, everything was accomplished
What skills did you acquire at the Software University, in addition to programming?
I have been able to get teamwork skills. It seems easy at first glance, but to reconcile all the different ideas and opinions of the team is a rather complex task. Also, I learned to be organized and not to leave things for the last minute.
Did the Software University Diploma help you to find a realization?
I started looking for a job before my diploma was ready. I think that not the diploma, but the acquired skills and what you are showing in a job interview are the things that help to find a professional realization.
How do you see yourself after 5 years?
After 5 years I see myself as a programmer with even more knowledge and experience.
Finally, what will you advise all future students who are about to start learning at the Software University?
My advice to them is NOT to give up. No matter how difficult a problem seems to be, it always has a solution. That’s why they have to believe in themselves and do not stop trying!
