Okay so I'm a few weeks into working at Arden and everything seems to be going well, I've had a couple of weeks of training which involved going over some general software concepts such as: Development Lifecycles and Source Control.
Recently me and another new starter have been working on a project together. It is only a small standalone application written in C++. It is essentially a chance to get used to their IDE and Source Control without having us get too in depth with the main program code base.
I'm looking forward to where things are going to go over the next year or so. I've learnt quite a bit so far, although mostly about design. I'll update again soon.
Keep it easy :)
