Endless learning ways

Endless learning ways

What I enjoy most in my field of working, is that ability to learn at your own pace. Whatever subject you are curious about, you can be sure that there is a way to do so.

We have endless resources to learn, and satisfy our curiosity, our passion! I do consider “Coursera” as the best platform to take online courses in prestigious worldwide universities and this is without any cost-if you choose to just gain the knowledge, not the certificate. There is a lot more of resources like udacity, topcoder, hackerrand,etc.

Software engineering is leading the World, changing our habits, and exceeding Human expectations! I really enjoy having the opportunity to participate in making the difference, as a software engineer. I’m living a continuous increasing curiosity and learning curve because it’s all about passion!

I do encourage every passionate about technology and computer engineering to just take some time, and do some search. Just google resources and you will be surrounded by millions of courses and tips.  You don’t have to follow a computer engineering university degree, you just need the two words starting with “P”: Passion and Patience!

From a dream to a way of making it true with Toptal

I’ve been working as a software engineer, SAP ABAP Developer, since November 2014. My work involves an international client “SAP French Labs” which is the most interesting part for me, because I want to grow in an international environment and interact with people all over the World. Thus, enabling me to widen my Network and strengthen my knowledge.

I do believe that a software engineer is not just a “developer”. Software engineering involves interaction with client in order to understand and better satisfy his needs, besides collaboration among a team. That’s why, I have been actively seeking for Computer Science Network since the beginning of my computer engineering university studies.

Back to my technical skills, among my current team we are working with Agile methodology “SCRUM” so that our client stays tuned with our progress. I’ve improved my skills by going through standard conventions and test-driven code as well as my ABAP knowledge, the object orientated programming language of SAP. I always do my tasks conscientiously with a lot of commitment to get the right result and a good feedback. I do organize myself, prioritize my tasks and focus on my goals.

Also, I had usable security certificate in March 2015 from University of Maryland online course and I’m now preparing for Oracle Certified Programmer for Java (OCJP) exam. I’m also working on improving my German language, besides having strong French and English language skills.

My passion for computer engineering led me to constantly being proactive in communities and clubs. First, it was by joining a club “Netlinks” in my School as co-founder where I took charge of organizing our plans, helping on some innovative projects and preparing Netlinks Day 2014, a yearly event. Then, this year, I had a unique opportunity while participating in Arab Women in Computing (ArabWIC) conference in Abu Dhabi as an IT panelist. I shared my experience and met a lot of inspiring women in different big companies like IBM and Oracle.

I guess, you are wondering where is Toptal in all of that? Well! I’m going to tell you the story.

While, doing some searches as usual, in order to meet new challenges, technology news, and tips for interviewing, I found an article written in Toptal: The vital guide for Java Interviewing. Since Java is my favorite programming language, it caught my attention. Then, I took a look at the Website home page and was impressed by its claim of hiring 3% of top talented software engineers. I felt that it was appealing to me, to my passion, to my dream of being one of top talented engineers who have effective impact in the World! So, I started signing in, to join Toptal Java Community.

Toptal caught my attention also by its concept, different from other Freelancer websites like ODesk and Freelancer. It appears to be more selective and serious because of its screening process, technical interviews and commitment to find the right match for you. Besides, Toptal Blog reveals that there are many passionate people like me! I couldn’t forget how I was fascinated by the Co-founder of Toptal article about working remotely too!

Finally, I’m eager to join Toptal Software Development Network! It would be an opportunity to try a new style of work!

Good morning my reader,

Welcome in my first article :).

Well, I don’t have much to talk about my career experience, since I have just started my first year as a software engineer. So, I’m a fresh professional in a big World!

But, for sure, I have something that characterizes me! I’m a girl with big ambitions and a will !

When I start thinking about my ambitions, I can’t stop anymore..until getting them achieved! And I know, my passion for computer engineering will guide me toward making people life better. I enjoy working in an environment where there is initiative, exchange of ideas, thus creativity and innovation. Learning, and learning more among such an environment and interacting with passionate people! It’s just my dreamy work environment!

Since, there is no way for me to keep something just like a “dream”, I’m working hard to be able to get hired by a company ensuring such environment.. maybe Google for example ;). Moreover, one day you will see my own project, with a lot of inspiration and effective impact!

I do believe that where there is a will there is a way! So anyone, anyone of you has to just deeply believe in himself, follow a plan.. and his dream will come true!
