University to industry transition - C++
I am starting a years work placement in a few months as part of my degree course, and wondered how people found the transition from Uni to industry with respect to applying their programming skills. I admit, I am still extremely new to programming and in particular C++, only applying my knowledge to small scale problems. I have the next 4 months, without any uni distractions, to get my skills developed further (I have been spending, and intend to continue to do so, around 3 hours daily reading and practising)
Any advice would be welcome.
