Hi guys! I just started at Dealer this week, and was sitting here wishing I had had more of an idea of what to expect at the position I accepted. Then I thought, heck, a bunch of us are out there already, and we should share with you guys some of the technology we're using every day so you can at least have a sort of a topic list of what is being used out here in different companies.
In my internship at EQ2 (You are not allowed to view links.
), a software company focused on administration and maintenance, I made use of a whole bunch of classic ASP, some Windows Server in a couple of different flavors and some basic html and css. This company was very awesome, if slightly behind on a lot of the UX and display technology. However, when I left, they were working on some very cool stuff.
My internship at MyWebGrocer (mywebgrocer.com) was very informative for me; I was exposed to a much larger ode base than I had been before, as well as having to learn C#, MVC3/razor, ANT, t-SQL and how to actually make use of a number of coding principles that I knew in theory. I learned a good deal about unit testing, SOLID, reflection and how awesome the Microsoft tools can be.
Thus far at Dealer.com I have been exposed to Groovy, Grails, ext.js, Jenkins, Maven, and gitflow.
