Ani-Sarambelieva

Meet Ani Sarambelieva. She is a software engineer that was brave enough to talk about her path as a developer so far. We asked Ani some questions that might help you start your career as a programmer.

How and when did you start programming?

It was never my dream job. It all started in 11th grade when I went to a programming presentation with my boyfriend. I was wondering where to study from, and the hardest part is to find out which is the best place. It was really interesting, but I didn’t know where to study. The hardest part was finding out, which is the best place to study from.

Why did you choose SoftUni?

I was very insecure and had trouble with the basics. SoftUni starts from the basics, and the community is friendly with novices. There were a lot of colleagues that helped me with my exercises. One of the things that motivated me was the fact that there were a lot of people that found their dream job here.

What is the thing you love most about being a software engineer?

It will sound strange but for me, it was the ability to fall easily into the flow of work. It is the state of, being one with your surrounding. Time passes and you don’t even notice it. For example, at 9 am I start working, and I sometimes forget lunchtime. The work is interesting, and challenging and can bring the best out of you. It is creative and you can add your ideas and logic, for the specific task.

Do you remember your first working experience as a programmer?

I was nervous and anxious. There was that feeling of not being ready for the job. My first tasks were not as hard as I thought that they would be and managed to do them. My work colleagues give me hints and guidelines that helped me later on. As time goes, my tasks become harder, and this is how I developed. The one thing that helped me was asking a lot of questions and communicating with the team.

 

What is the most important thing you learn in SoftUni?

Consistency. It is one of the most important things. Having regular homeworks, exercise sessions, and having to write code every day. Studying is a never-ending process, even after graduating and starting a job.

Do you have advice for our students?

Coding InstructorsNever give up when you have a bad day! When you start learning something new, there is the void that you are missing some parts. By studying consistently, you will succeed. You learn by doing, and it will take some time. Give yourself time and be patient.

Where do you recommend for a beginner to start their career path?

Without a doubt, it is at SoftUni. I wish good luck to all of you.
