Student To Intern

By Byron Murray | Friday, January 9, 2015

Learn more about Byron's experience as an intern.

My name is Byron Murray and I have just completed three years study at Waiariki Institute of Technology where I attained a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Information Systems. I was lucky enough to be offered an internship at Dubzz Digital Marketing which I am very grateful to have the opportunity to get first-hand experience as a web developer.

Preparing for the job was a challenge in itself. While I had a lot of the technical skills necessary to complete tasks, I was surprised at actually how different the day and a life of a developer was to what I had imagined. It isn’t just building websites and writing code. There is a lot more to it than that like interacting with clients, researching and content updates.

While studying I spent a lot of time learning PHP and SQL for developing dynamic websites with little attention to design languages such as CSS. Prior to getting the job, I pictured myself working as a PHP programmer but since working at Dubzz I have been learning a lot about front-end web design, thus making for a more rounded web developer.

Before studying I was an electrician and one of the reasons I got into programming was for the challenge, and so far it hasn’t let me down. I am learning new things every day and am coming more aware with how true the quote is by Aristotle “the more you know, the more you know you don’t know”. I am so happy to be in a position where no two days are the same, and never having the chance to get bored. There is a lot to learn and I look forward to all the experiences and opportunities this exciting, forever changing career has to offer.

Once again thanks to the Dubzz team for all your help and the opportunity you have given me.

What we appreciated most was that Rachel took a technical subject and explained it in plain English, enabling our operators of varying age and technical ability to understand both the current and future opportunities available.
