Welcome to the Treehouse Community
Looking to learn something new?
Thank You Team Treehouse
Just wanted to express gratitude and emphasise why this site is so useful.
I am only on module 4 and have yet to have the confidence to try and get a job doing it.
But I felt like I have gained depth and confidence in what I have already learned. I work in a Customer Services job, my job consists of 3 main responsibilities, processing repair bookings, processing liability claims and handling complaints.
We had a new booking process going ahead and I thought I would pitch in with some suggested improvements. Because they were looking to make things a lot stricter on agents to avoid booking errors and knowing what agents are like and the plethora of errors that would occur and I don't think a crack of a whip is going to stop them from happening. So I figured there would be a way they could prevent these errors with a bit of coding.
Not only did they like my idea, I have been given time to work on coding it and leaving room for us to automate the process, which is what we're currently working on. So saving time processing bookings and catching errors agents make before they send a booking over.
It also has earned me the supervisor bonus this month. Granted, I am still working a loss give the bonus is £100 and this costs me $100 a month, but I'll have a drink on Treehouse at least. :P But I am surprised by the level of skill I have from doing these courses and how much I actually understand from it, rather than how I was coding before "I know it works, but I don't know why it works", and knowing "why" has helped me plan and structure myself better to resolve problems.
I may even try and be cheeky and try and convince them to have a developer role, if there's other areas I think that can be aided and save time & money and create my own job. After all, I can see other areas where I could make something that'll help.
