Working in the technology job market requires programmers to constantly update their knowledge and search for the latest in the field. After all, innovations appear all the time and what was once a trend quickly becomes the standard.
In this context full of changes, it would be a hand in the wheel if there was a platform that centralized all the resources needed for a career in the technology area. And the IBM Blue Profile exists for that!
This space came to fill exactly that gap that was empty between the needs of professionals in the area of technology, especially among developers.
The project is a partnership between IBM and TecMundo and has been on the air for a few months, as you may have seen in our “Exclusive Channels” space. The goal is to be a virtual environment for learning, interaction and self-knowledge that can and should be used by anyone who wants to develop professionally and acquire new technical knowledge.
What is the IBM Blue Profile?
IBM Blue Profile is a free platform that maps programmers’ profiles to deliver specialized content based on their interests. Use is indispensable for development professionals who want to practice self-knowledge.
This is, in fact, the main objective of the project: to help developers to get to know each other better, a reflection that few professionals make throughout their journey in the job market – which can be a mistake.
When the programmer does not know his own skills, aptitudes and preferences, he can end up making mistakes in his career. Choosing the wrong job, spending time on unnecessary training and general discontent are just a few symptoms of a developer who has not practiced self-knowledge.
How to develop in the career of a programmer?
In this process of self-awareness, IBM Blue Profile offers a number of mechanisms to assist developers in their careers. Learn about the features offered by this platform and how each one works.
Smart and friendly chatbot
The first step in this journey of self-knowledge begins with defining what your developer profile is. This is only possible thanks to the user’s interaction with the intelligent and humanized chatbot built with IBM Watson and IBM Cloud technologies.
This chatbot, unlike many other solutions out there, was built exactly to be able to extract the answers that help to build an assertive user profile. We are not talking about a “cold and calculating” robot, because the chatbot is friendly, human and customizable – it hardly looks like a robot.
Responses are collected, processed and an accurate result is generated based on the characteristics, interests and skills of each programmer. Just trying to chat with this chatbot to understand how amazing this experience can be.
Exclusive content aimed at developers
After the programmer’s profile is drawn, it is displayed on the user’s home page. It is in this that he can follow its development and one of the main differentials of this solution: the exclusive and targeted content for each programmer.
Once the chatbot has understood each person’s preferences, interests and abilities, the system will automatically generate a list of content that is of interest to the professional. This means that nothing “useless” material and that will not add to the development of this programmer’s career will appear there.
