What motivated you to learn how to use Pega?
A friend who is also in their final year of the university told me that she was developing an application without using much code. I was intrigued and decided to enroll in Pega UAP courses at my university. I’m proud to say that I am now a Pega CSSA.

 

"Pega helps easily automate the entire business process and anyone can succeed if they are really passionate about learning Pega technology."

 

How has Pega shaped or impacted your career?
I didn’t have a Computer Science background like many of my peers but I have been able to achieve Pega certification and became part of a team that won an award during the Pega Community Hackathon. That wouldn’t have been possible without Pega so I’m very thankful to have pursued this opportunity.

What message or advice would you give to anyone who is considering a career as a Pega Developer?
I would recommend that you choose a career in Pega because of the number of opportunities that will be available to you. Pega helps easily automate the entire business process and anyone can succeed if they are really passionate about learning Pega technology.

"Feed The Need was created to help people who have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. After analyzing the basic needs of human beings. We came together and used Pega to automate requests for these services. "

 

How did you find out about the Pega Community Hackathon and why did you want to participate?
I heard about the Pega Community Hackathon from a friend who was interested in developing an application that serves needy people by connecting donors and recipients. I’m always interested in learning new concepts that are needed to develop an application so I jumped at the chance to participate.

Tell us about the Hackathon project that you worked on - How did you or your team come up with the idea? How did you or your team go about the process of building this Hackathon submission?
Feed The Need was created to help people who have been impacted by the Covid-19 crisis. First, we analyzed the basic needs of human beings (food, clothing, shelter) and then moved on to determine how we could help human beings who were facing emergency situations that would require services such as blood and organ donations. After going through this process, we came together and used Pega to automate requests for these services.

Are there any particular elements of this Hackathon submission that you are most proud of?
The moment when we completed the end-to-end process of our application and submission of our project for the Hackathon.

"Working on Pega technology has created opportunities for me to deliver real-world results quickly resulting in internal exposure and experience."
