I was really hyped for what I would learn by doing internship.

The files on the web app server are updated by drag and drop on FTP.

    That is pretty normal, for companies with zero devops.

    Trust me, it could be worse. I'm programming crystal reports.

    Sounds like my first internship. Granted, that was in 2010.... also, the files were direct-edited live on the server, and there was no revision control. It was a Classic ASP application, so there were all different versions of pages (eg _old, _old2, _useThisOne, _noReally, _orig) and it was impossible to tell which one was actually in use. Good times...

    Yup, that sounds familiar

    That was me 4 years ago.

    Now there's git, there's local + testing + production servers, there's auto deployments (well I have a button and it does all kinds of magic and builds new aws instances with new changes)

    Currently I'm trying to remove the button and have a master branch merge trigger this for me.

    Don't wait for change, be the change!

    Hopefully you can drag and drop more than one file at a time. :-)

    I'm reminded of hosting sites I've used like that..
