A New Dev On The Block

Published by Kyle on June 22, 2018 at 10:56am

Hello,

I’m Kyle, the newest member of the team here at Antelle. I’ve been here for almost two months and have learned a lot.

I had learned Java in my university course and was already familiar with object-oriented programming principles, so it was mainly a matter of watching the video courses and keeping an eye out for the differences between Java and C#. Luckily, PluralSight is an excellent learning platform so it was fairly easy to familiarise myself with the new classes and the syntactical differences between the two programming languages.

A New Chapter

The 4th September came around, and I entered the doors of Antelle to be greeted by Tony, who proceeded to show me around the office, especially the tea and coffee area and my workspace. Following this brief introduction, he took me into his office and told me the broad plan for my time here, as well as my first week’s task.

The New Website

You may have noticed things have changed around the blog and the entire Antelle website.  I’m not entirely sure what iteration of it we are on but I’m very happy with how things have turned out.

Microsoft CRM: Early Lessons Learned

There are a few things that I’ve worked with since beginning work at Antelle that feel too “big” to describe with any sort of justice.  Not unless I could hold your attention for a short novel of a blog post, despite that, I’ll give as abridged a summary as I can.

Pair Programming: Fresh Perspectives

Hello again,

A few weeks ago I had the genuine pleasure of working with an aspiring developer who joined us for a week of work experience as part of his preparation for his University travels and to help build his experience with the Umbraco CMS and the C# Language.
