On September 23rd some students said goodbye to us who will be at the DHBW in the next months. So our group of 18 new trainees and students had dropped to 9 and we could finally move to the learning office of TecAlliance in Weikersheim. For the time being, we worked on other programming tasks provided by our trainers.
When these tasks were finished, we started to work with databases (SQL). After a detailed explanation there were some exercises to get a better understanding of this topic. For example, we created our own databases, connected them with a test program and tried out some functions.
After two weeks we had completed most of the work and have now started our first own project. During the presentation of the project management we had the idea to create a car pool application. The project ranged from planning the user interface to structuring the database behind it. After two weeks we had finished our programs. Each group had created its own app with its own implemented idea. After this completion we were encouraged to implement and replace several other small things (including code cleanups). Some who were a bit faster with the further implementations improved their interface with a clear GUI (graphical user interface, see pictures). When this happened, we gave a short presentation among our trainees to get an overview into the different programs.
This small project gave us a great insight into the process of project planning and its implementation. In addition it was noticeable, with how many different solutions you can solve tasks and problems.
