Mr. Sok Puthiphorn
My main goal is to develop computer programs that allow computer systems to process information in the appropriate manner by specifying step-by-step processes.
Technology and programming is my passion, so I love working in the Information Technology sector. Today I am a Senior Programmer at KhmerDev, where I have been working for just over one year.
In 2010, I started as an Internet Shop Controller in a local Internet café, working part-time before being hired as a Developer and Technical Support Team Leader at BnD Solutions in 2011. I progressed through company ranks to become Senior Programmer at Atmosphere Technology Co., Ltd by 2013.
As Programmers, we are faced with new problems to solve everyday, from debugging and working on someone else’s code to communicating and understanding what clients want. Additionally, technology is constantly changing and programming languages must constantly adapt, which means we must always stay on top of everything and don’t fall behind. We are constantly adapting and looking to improve as this is an industry with endless room for growth. The constant evolution of technology is what makes the job exciting.
One of the best things about being a Computer Programmer is that while companies generally require a Bachelor’s degree in computer science or programming, some will hire individuals with just a certificate or an associate degree. Experience is key; get as much as you can, however you can. If you are looking to work in this sector, my advice is that you should always be prepared - know the job and the company you are approaching. Most importantly, be ready to explain why you are the best candidate for the job. Start coding, immerse yourself in technology, and become a problem solver. If you love technology and working on step-by-step codes to help businesses run efficiently, this is the job for you. For me, I believe that with my current experience and knowledge I can become a Project Manager or Technical Team Leader.
