6. Describe a typical day at NectarOM for you?
My typical day at NectarOM begins with an essential cup of coffee. After unpacking my bag, I get started with checking my emails, making sure I have any updates that may have come in during the evening or early AM. Then I check any outstanding code that was submitted for review, making any fixes or changes that need to be added before resubmitting. After checking in on these communication channels, I get started with the tasks for the day. The cycle of checking submitted code continues until everything is approved and accepted, and my day ends when all outstanding tasks have been completed or updated.
