Eve samples life in the world of software design
Eve Pyatt, in Year 12, spent her work experience at WJP Software in Bedale. WPS specialise in crafting innovative and intuitive software products for healthcare, local government, and community-oriented organisations.
Eve experienced all aspects of the work WKP do – from Office Management tasks, Source Control and Collaborative Development to learning about the Installation She also sat in on demos of the MRS Web and EBM software and learned about Customer Support and Website Development using the WCS Software.
Eve worked on a project to use WCS to create a website on a topic of her choice. This project allowed here to experience many aspects of web design including using Bootstrap code, utilising WCS features, and using HTML in practice.
Eve said: “I was most interested in the website design aspect of the company as, while I had done a little before, it was something I wanted to get more experience doing.”
WJP really enjoyed having Eve in the office and are looking forward to welcoming more Year 12 students for work experience in the future. They hope Eve returns to begin her second year of Sixth Form with helpful knowledge and transferrable skills.
James Proctor, Managing Director at WJP Software, said: “Having Eve was fabulous and allowed us to share our knowledge with her, along with exploring what she had already learnt. She was really quick at picking up ideas and how systems worked which was great to see. I’m sure Eve will have a great future in whatever she does, and it’s really positive to know it all started at WJPS.”
