Código de Comercio: A mass batch email sender
This was an app made for BlueprintsIT‘s biggest client, it’s a mass email sender that can handle sending out hundreds of thousands of emails in a day through either manually requesting the send out, batch processing files in a specified folder that would be read periodically by a daemon, or by requesting the send out through a Web Service. I worked on this project full-time in the early months of 2015.
My job when I joined this project was to test it exhaustively, both in functionality and usability. I learnt to use tools such as SoapUI and Selenium to develop some automatic tests and stress tests. Once I had tested almost every aspect of the software, the job shifted to address and fix the bugs and problems I had found through the testing.
This was my first job out of college that I could fully dedicate full-time and give it my all. I learned a lot, I was given space to learn and grow. Though this particular piece of software had a little bit of a reputation inside BlueprintsIT, I remember it fondly as it allowed me to develop new knowledge, and to adapt to this new environment.
At BlueprintsIT I was given free range to explore my skills, this was a company that cared about seeing their people grow in their own interests. Here is where I first discovered my passion for UX and Front-end development, and therefore the tasks that were assigned to me where usually about those areas. I also got the chance to make many good friends while working here and to build relationships I value deeply.
