“Success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. If you love what you are doing, you will be successful.” – Albert Schweitzer

This quote by Albert Schweitzer has always resonated with me, and it is especially relevant to my experience as a front-end developer intern at Bukit Vista. When I started my internship, I was so focused on achieving success that I almost forgot to enjoy myself. I was determined to learn as much as possible and produce high-quality work, but I was also putting pressure on myself to be perfect. But, I soon realized I was more likely to succeed if I focused on enjoying my work. I am more motivated and productive when I enjoy and am passionate about my work. I’m also more creative and innovative. And I’m more likely to go the extra mile.

I’m halfway through my internship at Bukit Vista and having the time of my life. I’m learning new things every day, and I’m surrounded by supportive and talented people. I’m also making a real contribution to the company, which is rewarding.

Learning While Working

Learning while working, can you?

“Learning while working” is an interesting concept, isn’t it? It’s the idea that you can learn new things and develop your skills simply by doing your job. While it may not seem like initially, there are many opportunities to learn while working as a front-end developer intern. One way to learn while working is to pay attention to your challenges. When you encounter a problem you don’t know how to solve, don’t be afraid to ask for help from your mentors or colleagues. They can teach you new things and help you to develop your problem-solving skills.

Another way to learn while working is to experiment. Don’t be afraid to try new things and see what works. This is a great way to learn new technologies and frameworks. You can also learn from your mistakes. When something doesn’t work out as expected, take some time to reflect on what went wrong and how you can avoid making the same mistake in the future.

Growing Together, Succeeding Together

One of the most important things I have learned during my internship at Bukit Vista is the importance of teamwork. As a front-end developer intern, I work closely with other developers, designers, and product managers daily. We collaborate on projects, share ideas, and support each other through challenges. I have found that teamwork is essential for success in front-end development. When we work together, we can achieve things we cannot achieve on our own. For example, this week, I helped my colleague, Felix Ivander (Data Scientist), to develop a dashboard website (Promenade) to visualize data from the backend. He handled all the backend, and I focused on developing the website interface and displaying all the data in a table. Within one week, we finished the website with all the expected features.

Working on this project together was a great learning experience for me. I learned a lot from Felix about how to work with data and how to design compelling visualizations. While working on this project, I also learned a new programming language (Python), like what I wrote in the first section, “Learning while working.”

Overall, I am grateful for the opportunity to intern at Bukit Vista. It has been a valuable learning experience, and I am excited to continue growing and developing as a front-end developer intern. I hope I can contribute and collaborate more on any project.

Let’s be a part of something bigger and make a real impact at Bukit Vista.
