  1. Huy – Your presentation gives a very clear picture of what it is like to work for a software firm! I’m curious to know what are some of the things you learned about yourself while doing this work? Congratulations on making the most of your internship.

    1. Thank you so much! During the internship, I realized that I have a strong interest in exploring technical problems and optimizing their solutions. Moreover, I learned that workplace culture is one of the key factors which can cause a huge impact on our performance or even mindset.

  2. Huy,
    Thank you for your presentation. I love that you took the time to explain why we use the term “cloud computing.” I’m glad that you allowed your curiosity to come out and ask that question.

  3. Great presentation, Huy! Thanks for sharing your experience and suggestions on how to prepare for a software engineering position. It’s great to hear that you enjoyed your work with FPT Software – it sounds like an excellent agile development learning opportunity.

    Did you encounter any challenges during your internship? How did you overcome those?

    1. Thank you so much, Professor! I did have quite a lot of challenges when I first came to the company. There were so many new things to learn in the first week of the internship. I spent time studying Java (because I have never used Java before) along with Scrum workflow to keep up with everyone in my team. It was like a whole new world for me to explore! It was also difficult to learn and interpret technical terminologies in Git such as cherry-pick or rebase. However, I could finally understand them all by reading documents and practicing many times with the help of mentors there.

  4. Great presentation Huy!
    Excellent insight and advice for others interested in software development.

  5. Huy-Congratulations again on an extremely successful internship! I enjoyed listening to your presentation, which brought back lots of good memories of our correspondence this summer about software engineering and workplace culture. I have a feeling that your experience at FPT is going to open a lot of doors for you in the future! I hope we can meet up on campus in the spring.
