From 17.06. to 19.06. six very interested and engaged students took part in a three-day internship workshop in Weikersheim. The students wanted to do a voluntary internship during their holidays and learn more about the different training possibilities and programming.
The main objective of this workshop was to convey theoretical contents and methods and to better understand their application. During this three-day workshop, the trainees had the opportunity to enter the world of programming and develop many practical applications in this field.
The first day started for the six trainees with a short welcome as well as a first insight into the company in form of a company presentation. In order to get a practical impression, a tour through the company followed. Afterwards the trainees had the opportunity to get to know the basics of programming, such as what variables, branches and loops are and were able to develop small applications with the programming language C#.
On the second day the trainees got to know the Raspberry Pi, a small single board computer with which all kinds of projects can be realized. With the help of the pluggable extension module “Sense Hat” and the programming language “Phyton”, they were then able to run lettering across an LED display and change the color.
On Wednesday the trainees received an introduction to HTML and CSS. These are two description languages that define the structure of web pages (HTML) and the design of the corresponding elements (CSS). During and after this introduction, the trainees were able to do exercises again and again and create smaller websites themselves.
