Consulting Chronicles

From Mobile developer to WEB Front developer (1st part)

OCTO is a great place to work and even greater place to grow. As an Octo consultant I’m used to learning and improving on a regular basis. Sharing knowledge is a central value of OCTO’s culture. I have been told to always try to find a better way and to push the boundaries of knowledge.

As sharing is a core value, I could help by sharing this new career path I’ve choosen.

After 5 years spent in the iOS development field, I had the strange feeling that I wasn’t learning anymore. Not that I had mastered everything there is to know about iOS development, but I felt the need for a “reboot”.

Talking with HR and managers, and I decided to face new challenges by joining the WEB Front team (WEBF).

I started my career a while ago in embedded software (for automotive and aeronautic industries). I never touched JavaScript and HTML/CSS always appeared to me as black magic.

Although I will officially join the WEBF tribe in May, the 2nd, I already started to take some MOOC and attended some of WEB Front team’s days for a month. Therefore I can already explain a few things I found out about my new challenges. Read more
