At the end of the final semester of my undergraduate study at Swiss German University (http://sgu.ac.id), I looked for a company that was committed in harnessing Free Software (http://gnu.org) to create IT solutions. Just before the graduation ceremony, the faculty of Information Technology held a career day presenting five companies. The first was an international insurance company looking for salesperson, the second was an old local IT solution company specializing in banking system with Java, Cobol and RPG as the primary programming languages, the third was a local Microsoft Gold Certified IT solution company, the fourth was an international company specializing in providing IT solutions for aeronautical industry, and the last one was Infi-nity Solution. It was really a blessing from Father in Heaven to find Infi-nity Solution just before my graduation ceremony since previously I had been looking for such a local company in vain.
Infi-nity Solution (http://infi-nity.com) is a start-up company that is committed in harnessing Free Software to create IT solutions. Pioneered by two IT consultants, Hery Atmadja and Ivan E.C. Wirawan, who have worked at Accenture and Hutchinson, Infi-nity Solution is very good at analyzing, designing, and implementing Free Software-based IT solutions. Since the developers at the company were only the two pioneers, I was really interested in joining this company as a developer specializing in Free Software. For sure there will be many interesting challenges and a lot of opportunities to learn as well as to contribute to Free Software communities out there and the Indonesian society that we serve.
The most interesting thing during the Infi-nity Solution's presentation in the career day was that the pioneers analyzed, designed, and implemented a web-based shop floor management system for a local apparel company, which exports its products to various countries, with Symfony, PostgreSQL, and BIRT within three months. Of course, it was followed by hundreds minor incremental updates here and there, but in my opinion, three months were pretty fast in analyzing, designing, learning how to use Symfony, PostgreSQL, and BIRT to create the first working product that entered production stage as well as installing about 200 barcode scanners to capture goods movements in the production area. So, I decided to join this company, and to this day I have been having fun there :-)
