I was then introduced into an internal project where I worked as a researcher and developer, testing out and implementing very new software components such as graalvm. Other technologies I learnt to use included Linux, docker, jenkins, Mongodb, Springboot and security tools like sonaQube."

When doing a technical internship one is faced with many problems, whether it is connecting to a VPN for the first time or figuring out why a process is not running, the ability to problem solve is the first and best skill that still helps me in my job today."
