    Communication skills
     
    My first significant experience in coordinating with other people in order to organize events came from my participation as a secretary in a students association.
     
    My trainee year at ESOC allowed me to develop a variety of useful communication skills through my involvement in a professional multidisciplinary project team:
    ▪ Inherent to the international character of ESA, communicating with people that come from different countries and cultures.
    ▪ Working together closely with people from 'across the fence', i.e. having a different professional background and role in the team. Specifically, this trained my ability to present my own work in a clear and abstract way to an outside public and to understand the gist of other people's work.
    ▪ Resolving conflicts arising from people with different roles having different interests.
     
    Other than that I attended company-offered seminars on presentation techniques and conflict management.
     
    In my personal life I've been active in several of ESOC's social clubs. My main involvement has been in the ESOC Theatre Group. I've played a main acting role in the group's 2013 Spring production. The acting itself develops many skills:
    ▪ empathy,
    ▪ opening oneself up to an audience,
    ▪ non-verbal communication,
    ▪ expressing and learning from constructive criticisms.
     
    Being part of an amateur theater production group has taught me team spirit and maintaining the delicate balance between work and private life. 
     
    Organisational / managerial skills
     
    Being involved in an Agile software project as a software developer during my trainee year at ESOC:
    ▪ has given me a feel for how long it takes me to do different tasks and, in turn, improved my personal planning skills,
    ▪ has taught me that time and cost constraints always involve tradeoffs and how to choose the right tradeoff. E.g. the tradeoff between a 'clean' solution and a quick solution.
     
    Job-related skills
     
    Through my training at ESOC I developed or improved on the following skills:
     
    ▪ Analyzing software architecture solutions in relation to important non-functional software qualities such as maintainability, robustness, performance,  configurability, etc.
    ▪ Software management: maintaining software versions, setting up processes for automatic building, packaging and deployment of software.
    ▪ Integrating and testing a distributed system with several software components, including log analysis and usage of network monitoring tools.
    ▪ The agile or incremental approach to software development.
    ▪ Writing high-quality software documentation: understable and comprehensive user/configuration manuals, software design and external interface documentation using UML 2.0
    ▪ Quickly collecting a working knowledge of new technologies by efficiently using the web as an information resource.
      In particular I learnt many things in the area of service-oriented architecture (SOA) design, due to the assignment of my traineeship:
    ▪ Defining interfaces between software systems in the form of services in a language and communication-agnostic way using SOA technologies and  standards,  both from general IT industry (WS-* standards, JAX-WS) and space IT industry (CCSDS Mission Operations family of standards).
    ▪ Developing language and communication bindings for these abstract services.
     
    Computer skills
     
    ▪ IT technologies:
    ▫ imperative languages: Java, C, C++
    ▫ functional/logical languages and hybrids: Prolog, Haskell, Mercury, Scala
    ▫ databases: SQL
    ▫ scripting: Python, Perl, Bash
    ▫ distributed systems: JAX-WS Services, Java RMI, Java EE, OMG CORBA
    ▫ network, transport and application layer protocols: HTTP, DTN, IP, TCP, UDP, Ethernet, SSH, . . .
    ▫ data modeling and XML-based languages: UML, WSDL, SOAP, XML Schema, XAML, . . .
    ▫ CCSDS standards: SM&C services (book 520.0) and MAL (book 521.0)
    ▪ IT tools:
    ▫ Office: Word, Excel (basic), Visio, Powerpoint, Acrobat, Latex, Lotus Notes, WebEx
    ▫ Operating systems: Linux (Ubuntu, SLES), Windows (XP, 7)
    ▫ Virtual machines: VMware (Player, vSphere)
    ▫ Basic Matlab and Maple
    ▫ Software development tools:
    ▪ Design: IBM Rational Software Architect
    ▪ Source code versioning: Git, Subversion
    ▪ Building and deployment: Maven, Ant, Jenkins
    ▪ IDE’s: Netbeans, Eclipse, Microsoft Visual Studio
    ▪ Agile development: tinyPM
    ▪ Software and documentation change management: IBM Rational Change
