What Past Interns Have Said About Their Experience

If you are interested in Java and coding in the working world then you couldn’t hope for a better place to go and learn. SOLIDitech provides a relaxed, but hard working environment with tons of wonderful and helpful people to learn from. Even though I only had four weeks at SOLID I gained a lot of practical knowledge of programming and the working environment that I would not have gained otherwise.

Heinrich Benz

The SOLIDitech Work Experience Program has been a very beneficial experience for me. I’ve learnt so much at SOLID, and it has been a really good insight into a software developer’s world. I feel a lot more confident going into the software development field because of it. I definitely would recommend The SOLIDitech Work Experience Program to anyone looking to go into the software development field.

Matthew Almano

It was an amazing experience. The people at SOLID are extremely friendly and very helpful. I enjoyed applying my theoretical knowledge to real-world tasks. Very structured and indeed rewarding.

Sbonelo-Mntungwa

The most valuable thing I gained from this experience was an appreciation of how agile processes aid in the development of a comprehensive software package such as SOLID. Other great experiences include a really flat management structure, relaxed and friendly work environment and the camaraderie in the team I worked within.

Mark Jones

Working at SOLID was a great experience for me. Despite having been here for four weeks I was able to gain more insight into how software is developed in the real world. The working environment here is perhaps the most friendly I have seen so far; great teamwork and the seniors were always ready to assist.

Petrus Kambala

Being part of the SOLID team has been a great experience. I managed to get my hands on some real-world projects that clients use on a daily basis. That, for me, was very satisfactory. Every member of the team was warm and friendly, through them I amassed a great deal of knowledge and insight.

Clayton-Sibanda

I could not have chosen a better place for my internship. Incredibly helpful and useful team that assisted me to grow my knowledge.

Thomas Bing

This program is a very rewarding experience. Working at SOLID teaches you many lessons in a wide range of areas but the most important lesson is learning how to problem solve. The company culture just adds to the experience, making this transition from University to the working world far easier. I have had a great time so far and have no doubt I will in the future.
