On march 3rd ended our first theoretical phase where we had the chance to learn many new things. We had, in addition to courses like Linear Algebra, Web Engineering and Theoretical Computer Science, also courses like Business Administration and Project Management. In most courses the grade was formed by through different projects instead of “classical” exams. The course Procedural Programming taught us the basics of Python, the topic in Business Administration were the different options of business start-up and we learned in Project Management about Scrum, what it is and how to use it. Everyone could let their creativity run free when building a website with HTML, CSS and PHP in Web Engineering. In Practical Data Processing we were taught the basics of Linux and Virtual Machines.
Since the DHBW in Bad Mergentheim doesn’t have a canteen, we have the opportunity to buy meal vouchers, which we could use, to eat cheaper in the restaurants in the area. In summary, one can say that we really liked it in the theoretical phase very much and we were able to get to know the other fellow students better.
