What do participants say about the program?

"I wanted to learn and be hands on with different technologies. This seemed like the perfect fit because you are guaranteed to be able to switch between numerous teams and touch many different parts of the product."

"The program has been a great opportunity to work with different teams in the company, experience different team cultures, and learn which areas of D2L are the fit best for me. I've been able to learn so much through the program since the three teams I've been a part of work on very different areas of the product and use different technologies. Making many connections throughout D2L and having the support of several managers has also been a great benefit."

"The best part has definitely been the opportunity to work on very different projects in each rotation. I've worked on investigating production SQL performance issues, writing static code analysis tools, identifying and correcting cache misuses, automated UI testing, and so much more."
