I genuinely need a career advice on my path to being a Java Developer.
I posses basic to intermediate Java programming skills and has never been involved in a project and full SDLC.
I have just started working in a telecommunications company as a Java Developer where I have to handle 4 existing applications in terms of maintenance and support and also enhancements.
The issue is I am not in any way involved in the coding aspect (outsourced to offshore personnel) and instead tasked with gathering business requirements, designing and review.
Is this beneficial to my career progression in software development where I am not involved at all in the programming aspect?
I am concerned that I don’t have project experience or at least one full SDLC where I developed an application from start to finish.
Thank you very much
