Excellent problem-solving and coding skills
Good understanding of POOP (Principles of Object Oriented Programming) and coding best-practices, e.g. unit testing, reusability, refactoring, etc.
Experience with database development and design, both with RDBMSes and NoSQL solutions

I didn’t realize that some of what I learned in college was literally “crap”.
