After the Start on 01.09.2021 and the Onboarding, some of the new trainees and students went to the Trainees-Office for the time when there was no university/vocational school.
As the name suggests, the goal of the Trainees-Office was to learn new things and to get started in the IT area. We learned the basics of different programming languages, had our first touches with backend, frontend and APIs, and learned a lot about databases.
We gained a lot of practical experience with small and larger tasks and created our first masterpieces. For example, we programmed a ping-pong. Finally, we went through a complete project from start to finish, it was a functional carpooling app. In the process, we learned a lot of new things about programming and solving obstacles and problems, as well as the workflow of agile working.
Meanwhile, the atmosphere was always positive and very relaxed despite the work. We chatted with the other trainees/students and the trainers, who were always friendly and helpful. In addition, the trainers told us about their daily work routine and gave us exciting insights, e.g. in the areas of security and Research & Innovation.
Unfortunately, our time together in the Trainees-Office is now coming to an end. But we can finally join the teams to contribute and work there with the knowledge we have gained.
