While I was studying for my Bachelor's degree in computer science, I decided to do an internship as a software engineer at Zühlke. Following my successful application and an intensive onboarding week at Zühlke in Schlieren, I was 'good to go' for my first day of work in the Berne office. The best part: I was allowed to work in an actual project from day one and so to dive right into the world of software development.
At the beginning of the internship I wrote tests for an existing iOS app. Through this task I was able to get to know the programming language Swift, which was new to me. I was able to get a lot of experience in testing. There was only one drawback: my project team was based in Zurich, but I was on my own in Berne. This less-than-ideal situation was quickly remedied, and I was given the opportunity to work from Schlieren, Zurich for the next two months of my internship.
