At Spade, I learned to work in team, to structure and optimize my code; it gave me a method that I apply today. I mainly worked on projects based on Wordpress. The atmosphere was great! Colleagues collaborate and help each other constantly.

During my interview I was asked what I wanted deepening competence, for me it was developing, and I have not been disappointed! Integration, PHP, Wordpress theme creation ... They even told me the whole development of a site, but always well supported. I learned a lot during my internship. And the atmosphere was no exception, always very friendly! At Spade're not an intern, you are a team member.
