What Does a Software Developer Do?


As an intern, I had never played pool
before but it became one of the things that I love to do here almost every day and I actually got kind of decent at it… maybe not today. I’m Karen Zoeller and i’m a junior
software developer and we’re here at Highland. A junior software developer is
an entry-level developer position which basically means i write code. So maybe i
will find a bug in the software and I’ll fix it or I’ll enhance the software to
do something a little bit better Highland is the creator of ‘OnBase’ which
is a enterprise content management software. It can be used in healthcare or in
banks, in higher education… for colleges – for financial aid or for
admissions. Basically anywhere you can think of – a company could totally use OnBase. On a typical day, someone on my team might be like… The software is acting this one way but we think that customers would really appreciate it if you did this. When I click this button everything
would just kind of stop and we would have to wait for something to pop up but
now when i click it we get another window that pops up over here and it
shows us a little bit about what’s going on in the background while we’re waiting
for the process to finish I’ve always loved puzzles and for me all
of this code is just a bunch of puzzles that you have to figure out. Like when I
found a bug… well, I know that this is well, I know that this is happening but why and where in the code is it happening and having to go through and figure out this puzzle of what is going on and how do I fix it. I think it’s really fun and it’s just like doing a sudoku puzzle or something like that. It’s really fun. I went college at Case Western Reserve University and I got a bachelor’s degree in computer
science. Hyland actually really loves working
with Case Western Reserve University and one day I saw the Hyland booth on
campus, so I went up to talk to them and here I am. I think program is really cool.
Being able to write something and then hit start and see your application be
created right there and have it do exactly what you want it to do. It’s kind of like an art form
you know, you worked really hard on it and now look at this thing that I’ve
created. That’s why i like it. You can always just start up a little
application and see if you can make something and see if you enjoyed it
