The study trip offers 3 full-day tracks combining theoretical information and hands-on sessions on Microservices, Continuous Integration and Artificial Intelligence. An exclusive mid-week trip, packed with seminars, labs, excellent networking opportunities, hackjams… and lots of fun, food, and drinks of course!
Track 1: Microservices
The students will be introduced to the latest means for realizing resilience and elasticity in cloud applications and illustrate patterns of concurrent and distributed programming. They will get insights into the concerns of a distributed architecture based on real life projects and get a taste of Akka and Docker. On top of that, the students will get a how (not) to blog training, so definitely stay tuned for their stories!
Track 2: Continuous Integration
This track implies a rough guide to the exciting world of test automation, continuous delivery, and infrastructure-as-code, highlighting some research findings that support the view that these DevOps practices are definitely here to stay. Together, they will turn projects into production ready code by setting up automated testing, continuous integration and automated deployment through a Microsoft and an open source toolchain.
Track 3: Artificial Intelligence
The last track will offer the students a peak into big data technologies and artificial intelligence through hands-on sessions. AI isn’t science fiction. It is based on mathematical models that allow a computer to simulate a human’s capacity to learn – drastically cutting the amount of coding and computing power needed to accomplish complex tasks. We believe that AI will become the most transformational technology of our age. Read more about AI here.
