You want a career in IT, but you have no idea what role is for you; Will you like testing all day? Do you have what it takes to be a Scrum Master? Are you creative enough for UX/UI? These are the kinds of questions students and young IT enthusiasts ask themselves at the beginning of their careers. The decision you make will affect your career in so many ways, the wrong choice will either lead to a lot of wasted time or long, miserable workdays in a job you just don’t love. While there is a lot of information about the different roles available in the IT industry, very rarely do young people get the chance to test out these positions before they commit to them – sort of like job shadowing.
That is why Atlantbh decided to revamp their DevDays workshop and turn it into a web app development workshop where young talents get the chance to work on a real project with a real team in an IT position of their choice. The DevDays workshop will give participants the chance to see what it is like to work in a real project team on an actual project with client needs and inputs. Project teams will consist of four positions: Software Engineer, Test Engineer, UI/UX Designer and Scrum Master/Product Owner.
This year’s DevDays will be held on the 8th of October, at BitLab, ETF Sarajevo. Students can apply with full or partial teams, or as individuals. For those who don’t have a full team, Atlantbh will match them with other participants in the same situation. Applications are currently open and future participants can apply here by October 1st, 2019.
All detailed information about the workshop will be sent by email once you’ve completed the application form.
