EPAM — Bench

In the outsourcing world bench refers to group of resources who are not assigned to any project, but ready to be used immediately when the need arises.

After my last project I was put on “bench”. I was learning new technologies and deepening my existing knowledge, for example:

  • read books and articles about Java concurrency
  • created a web application in Zend Framework backed by MySQL
  • learned about graph databases
  • watched Channel 9 videos about WPF, Windows 8, and software development
  • prototyped some ideas based on the things I learned

Technologies: PHP, Zend Framework, MySQL, Java, .NET, WPF

Tools used: Eclipse, Visual Studio
