At Bamboomedia, I was assigned to Flex-T division which makes tutorial CDs. I was assigned on a project about database connectivity. It was about how to connect PHP, VB, and Delphi to MySQL, SQL Server, dbf formatted database, Ms Access, and Oracle. There are some steps that must be done in creating this tutorial:

1. Explore and Research

In this step, I had to find ways to connect all applications and databases that I had mentioned before. I explored Internet and read several books regarding this material.

2. Creating Table of Content (TOC)

The same as writing a book, content of this tutorial must be arranged so that the material could be nicely followed by viewers.

3. Sample and Demo Preparation

I had to prepare anything that is necessary before I started recording. I prepared the source code and created some sample applications.

4. Recording Screen / Capturing Demo

Screen Flash was used during this process. In total, I recorded 44 demos.

5. Narration Design

Narration would be recorded by other division. Thus, I had to provide them with a narration design so that they would know what to say in the narration. I design a narration for 44 demos that I had recorded.

6. Record Narration

This recording was done by other division who had people with nice voices. I had to wait for them to finish before I could proceed to the next step.

7. Mixing

In this step, I had to mix the captured demo with the recorded narration.

8. Finishing

This was done by Technical Support division. They put demos which had already been mixed into a flash template. This flash template contained an interface for user in order to interact with the tutorial (e.g. play, pause, stop, fast forward, etc).

9. Quality Assurance

This was done by Marketing division. They watched and marked the tutorial. If the tutorial passed, it would be produced and sold.


A. Personal Evaluation

Having internship in Bamboomedia was a new experience to me. I learned new things and met new people during the process. I also found that creating tutorial is not an easy job which needs a lot of patience and spend quite much of time, especially in recording the screen demo and mixing.

Compared to my first internship in PT Mulia Industrindo, this time I spent most of my time in creating the company projects. However, the numbers of projects given were less than what I got on my first internship. I also had less difficulty in adapting my self with my colleagues in the office. They were all nice and friendly person. Since I was the youngest in the office, I learned many life and working experiences from them. They were also helpful and responsive to my questions. I felt very comfortable with the working condition. In addition, in order to communicate during working hours, the company used a LAN chat application called Network Assistant.

Finally, I enjoyed my time in Bamboomedia. Many things I have learned during my internship period there. I enjoyed my days there.

B. Points Learned

During my internship period in Bamboomedia, there are points that I have learned and experienced. Below are the points that I have learned.

  • I have learned a lot of new knowledge related to tutorial creation.
  • I have learned what Bamboomedia is and how it runs.
  • I have learned the structure of authorities in Bamboomedia
  • I have experienced working in a team (Flex-T Division).
  • I have experienced working under pressure with dateline.
  • I have learned to be patient.
  • I have learned to be independent and be initiative.
  • I have learned to be brave in adapting my self to the corporate culture and be more open and friendly to the people in the office.
  • I have learned to be brave in admitting my mistakes and be responsible to fix the mistakes that I have done.
  • I have learned to be careful, more responsible and give maximum result in doing every given task.
  • I have learned to be more responsible for what I have done or said.
  • I have learned that every person in a company has unique personality and different ways are needed in interacting with each of them.
  • I have learned that theories are not enough to work because there are many other things that we have to learn in the work field.
  • I have learned that I might not work in a work field that is the same with my education background. Thus, I have to be open and eager to learn new things.
  • I have learned to always updating my self with the latest information by reading newspapers, watching news, browsing through internet and searching through other medium of information.
  • I have learned that asking questions and consulting with the colleagues and superior in the office could broaden my knowledge and perception. They also gave me a different point of view of an issue that I never thought about.
  • I have learned that the internship program is a good way to perform the ability of the students to the company. In the future, the company might offer the students to work there if the students are considered qualified.
  • Technically, I learned about Screen Flash, Sony Sound Forge, Delphi 7 & 8, PHP, VB 6, MySQL 5, SQL Server 2000, DBF database, Ms Access, Oracle 10g XE (eXpress Edition), Paradox database, and Rave Report.
  • I also learned little about Java Micro Edition (J2ME), Visual Studio 2005 and Crystal Report. During my spare time, I explore a little about these issues and successfully created a mobile database application using Net Beans. I also worked on a simple Inventory Control project using Visual Studio 2005, MySQL and Crystal Report.

Those are the points that I have learned. Since my major is Information Technology (IT), having internship in an IT-related company had given me valuable knowledge and experience. It did not only enhance my knowledge and ability but also my personality. I believe that all the things I have learned through this internship program will contribute a lot to my future.

Basically, the objectives of the internship program are fulfilled through all the things that I have learned during the internship period. It shows that the internship program is the right means to educate the students through real working situation. It is important because student not only need to learn theories in class but also need to apply those theories in practice. Thus, student would become well-trained and could become a prospective employee for future.

After conducting my internship program, I am interested to be involved and become one of the participants in the IT market. Based on my experience; there are lots of things that I and other students could gain after having internship in Bamboomedia. Thus, I recommend PT Bamboomedia Cipta Persada as a good place to do internship program for other students.
