Matija Komorčec: Apart from technological knowledge, during my studies at Algebra I gained many other skills that I find very useful today.
What kind of projects do you mostly work on now? What technologies and programming languages do you use most?
Working as a developer naturally requires continuous training because the technology and different development tools are evolving rapidly. Apart from a desire to keep learning and staying up to date with new technologies and trends, what do you think are the traits of a good developer, one that is in demand on the labor market?
I would say that a developer’s best quality is probably consistency, in the sense that they continuously and regularly study and work on their programming skills. Programming is not easy, so it is important to stay the course and not give up when a programming problem seems too difficult. Consistency, combined with at least a dose of passion for programming, is what makes a developer that is in demand on the labor market.
You currently work in Germany. How did you get the job at HCL Technologies and in which direction would you like to proceed as a developer?
What advice would you give to young people currently deciding on their choice of university, and consequently, choosing their future careers, who are thinking about computer engineering?
If you want to go to work feeling happy about it, sometimes even stay at home and work remote, have a chance for someone to pay so that you can learn about the things that interest you, which you would learn about anyway in your free time? Great, in that case, pick the area of computing science you are most interested in, enroll in the related study programme and enjoy yourself in the process!
