Get to know our latest recruit Pavilion Sahota, who joined the team as a Full Stack Developer.

What do you like about working at Webnetism?

I love the shared team passion in programming, It’s great to be in a work environment where everyone is just as passionate as you are about technology, I love the lit up faces I see when a new piece of tech or update is announced, and I love the deep discussions we get into about our ideas, there’s never conflict, it’s always an open marketplace of ideas and concepts.

What’s your background?

Been programming since 2012, I know many languages and tech such as: C#, C++, Python, JavaScript, Angular, NgRx, RxJs, ASP.NET, .NET Core, Entity framework and many more. I attended university to further these skills but ended up leaving early as I felt that the teaching and learning methods did not suit me, I ended up spending all my time teaching myself everything instead. Been professionally working as a software engineer for almost 2 years now.

In my previous roles, I worked on a variety of military systems, GIS systems, and content threat removal systems.

What do you like most about your job?

I like the intellectually stimulating nature of programming, I find that working in this industry, I always find myself constantly learning new things. Even when I feel like I’ve learned everything I can, there’s always more to learn. Programming is like a puzzle, every day I come into work and solve puzzles, they can take either a few minutes or a few days to solve, sometimes they even require more than 1 person! But every day is a new puzzle that I’ve been challenged to solve.

I also find that this, sparks a lot of interesting discussions with my work colleagues, we always find ourselves getting into heated debates about programming styles and paradigms, I greatly value the experience and knowledge of my colleagues.

What are your hopes for our industry?

I am very excited for the future of modern web frameworks like NgRx, I am also very excited for the future of cloud development using platforms such as Azure and AWS.

What is the most important thing you have learned in the last five years?

Schools, colleges and universities only scratches the surface of the knowledge that’s available in life. Don’t ever solely rely on learning institutions and courses, get into the habit of self-teaching and personal research. Learning has no limits.
