According to Atlanters, the enthusiasm and energy of students just beginning their careers in IT, is a source of inspiration. The excitement they feel about the fastest growing industry in our country always surprises us. This is just one of many reasons why we try to organize activities for students as often as we can.

DevDays is one of those activities. It’s probably the most interesting workshops we host for students. It’s become a tradition, since we’ve organized DevDays workshops for the past three years now. It represents a unique chance for students to experience a taste of the real IT business world by working on real projects, fulfilling the roles associated with actual IT positions, and receiving feedback through an agile approach. Every year we structure the workshop a little bit differently, because trends, projects, and briefs change.

How was it this year? 

In September, we started looking for project teams consisting of four positions: Software Engineer, Test Engineer, UI/UX Designer, and Scrum Master/Product Owner. Dozens of applications came our way and we had the sweet torment of picking out the best ones. After we chose the teams and sent them instructions for the work that needs to be done, everything was set for our two-day workshop.

Why two days?

Well, we spent the entire first day, the 8th of October, at the Electrotechnical Faculty in Sarajevo where teams were working hard to develop a solution. However, they were not alone, since they had the guidance and assistance of Atlanters who served as mentors throughout the process.

In the afternoon of the 9th of October, we welcomed participants to our office, showed them around, told them everything they wanted to know about our company and listened to their well-tailored presentations.

Officially there is only one winner, but… 

In the end, The Atlanter Jury picked a winning team. Džavid Brdar, Mubina Kamberović, Esmina Radušić, and Tarik Sijerčić managed to complete the most amount of work in a given time and to offer the best solution to the problem. We congratulate them once again: well done!

Kenan Klisura, our Lead Software Engineer and one of the mentors said: “All of them are winners, and I mean that. We picked them because they showed potential in their applications and we were not disappointed. They had to work on a very complex project, but despite that, they showed some outstanding work. I and my colleagues are delighted with the teamwork, and out-of-the-box approach we saw from them.

See you again next year! 

The entire workshop was a true pleasure for our team; we had fun, students learned something new and got a chance to experience what it’s like to work on a real project, which we hope will benefit them in the future. What will the next DevDays workshop be like? Stay tuned and find out!
