Typical Day
I get ready to start my day at one of the top 10 Global Investment Banks of the world. Working in IT it is imperative for me to ensure our systems are up and running and develop high-quailty, reliable, scalable, maintainable and extendable software.
9:00 AM
I start day & launch development tools like Microsoft Visual Studio, Eclipse(Java), requirements document, Bamboo, Issue Tracking system (eg. JIRA.), Database & my Outlook inbox to check if there are any issues reported by support group or if there is a response from business user on the queries I asked while developing my module.
9:30 AM
All team members gather near the scrum board for a quick stand-up meeting to talk about what we did yesterday, today plan and if there are any blockers/issues that will impact work, I go back to my desk once the meeting is over and start developing my module.
1:00 PM
I have a one on one session with my manager to discuss my performance and any feed-back from my global partners/colleagues.

I break for lunch with my team colleagues within my teams & across teams, we chat about technology, global markets, escalations or new team activity coming up.
2:00 PM
Back to my desk & my world of coding.
4:15 PM
An issue is reported with a customer. I figure out the issue and ask the customer to reconnect to our system which solves the problem. This will help my company save on trades from this particular customer who typically trades $500 million a day. I then talk to my business analyst about adding a customer connection-monitoring feature that will help support group to proactively contact customers before they call us.
5:45 PM
I shoot my queries to the Traders and Sales team in the USA so as to get a response on the same day or next morning before getting into office. I start checking-in-my code/changes into the source code repository which triggers automated unit tests to see if my code will break anything that’s developed by other team members.

    In just two weeks, I feel that I have learnt more on programming than what I did during my engineering.

    The sessions are very interactive and very informative. I have started getting the bigger picture of programming and the role of Information Technology in Banking. Guest lectures allow us to interact with experienced people from the industry and people from higher management in the industry give a brief on their roles and experiences.”
