24 hours with Antoine, Full Stack Developer

Antoine is a developer in Lannion, Brittany, and former scrum master at Nokia where he managed a 5G dev team. Today, he works on the front- and back-end of a website enabling fraud analysts to identify fraud patterns. His work both helps detect and prevent fraud. He is experienced and works in a small team, so he has free reign to put forward vast amounts of ideas and implement them.

After dropping my 9-year-old son, Robin, off at school, I come to the office. I say hello to my colleagues who are already working and sit down. We are 3 developers in the open space, which makes collaboration easier.

08:45

I check my emails to plan my day according to priorities and I also answer to some Teams messages. Then I proofread a bit of code pushed on GitLab yesterday by a trainee who is working on one of my projects. I suggest some improvement but I'm quite happy, he's done good work.

09:00

I go back to my development story that I began yesterday on the front-end to query the back-end part with python and jQuery scripts. Last afternoon I was stuck on a bug, and I had an idea this morning while I was brushing my teeth.
 

09:45

Coffee break with my colleagues. In the open space we have very varied jobs, and we don't work on the same topics, so we don't usually talk about work.

10:00

I finish my development, the problem seems to have been solved and I add a few unit tests, then I push my changes onto GitLab. I'll now be able to test it on the qualification platform which is connected to real equipment.
 

12:00

Today, it's nice weather so I decide to go for a run by the sea. I get a sandwich that I'll eat afterwards.

13:30

Back on site, refreshed and ready to continue my day. I prepare a short demo for my meeting at 3 pm to illustrate what I have to release tomorrow. I also inform the application users: as they work 24/7 they will inevitably be affected but we have tried to automate as many things as possible to reduce the downtime.

15:00

Synchronization meeting with the different stakeholders on one of my projects. This is a HCI that helps the Fraud Analysts filter fraudulent traffic on international voice by enabling them to configure network elements.

16:00

Straight afterwards, I perform a few tests on the lab* and I update a story like we talked about in the meeting.

16:30

Then, I make myself a coffee that I drink at my desk while researching a blocking point: someone on the internet must have already found a solution, I'm sure!

17:00

I go back to the development tests I did this morning, correct a problem for an unusual case and add a test so that this problem is now covered by CI. Everything seems to work as expected and I open a merge request, putting it for my colleagues to proofread.

18:15

The day's over! I go and get my son, and we go home. * the labs enable us to test the use of a software program with users, in a near-real situation.
