"Most people who are new to software development think of it as just writing code, but it involves a lot more than that."
My name is Khuram, I’m a Software Developer at Sky. I joined Sky in 2018 via the graduate scheme.
My job as a developer at Sky is to create new features and functionality for the mobile offering side of the sky.com website. Most people who are new to software development think of it as just writing code, but it involves a lot more than that - there are business requirements that need to be analysed, potential solutions need to be discussed, large pieces of work have to be broken down into smaller tickets and then prioritised.
Then there’s the whole testing side of things, so that’s making sure code works as expected and doesn’t introduce any new bugs. I’d say my day-to-day activities include; writing code, speaking to business analysts and product owners to answer any questions I have regarding the work that I need to do, doing code reviews for other team members and also working closely with testers to find and fix any bugs that I may have caused.
