Highlights from the IT conference 2017
We had a great honor to be sponsors of the 22nd Scientific Conference “Information Technology – Present and Future“, organized by the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, University of Montenegro, held in Žabljak, from 27th February to 4th March. The event was attended by more than 300 experts from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Russia, Serbia and Turkey.
We presented Bild Studio in a slightly different way than usual. Gatherings, which involve a large number of students, professors and employers, are a great opportunity to present our internship programs as a long-term solution to the problem of lack of adequate staff on the market of Montenegro, hoping that others will follow our example. So far, 47 people were trained through various programs, which involved practical and theoretical work in order to meet the demands of the modern market, which are changing faster than the teaching program of formal education.
After the presentation of the companies, registered teams of students divided in groups and engaged in the Internet of Things (IoTON) and (Hackathon) programming competition. Our software engineer, Lindon Camaj, had the honor to be part of the jury that decided on the winners of this year’s Hackathon. Students were asked to write a program that simulates a simple graphics editor, and additional task was to create a graphical user interface (GUI) for the editor.
All of the companies, sponsors of this year’s IT conference, provided appropriate gifts for the participants of both competitions. For winners of this year’s Hackathon, Bild Studio donated Arduino robot kit, three books in the field of programming and participation in our internship program for developers.
This year’s IT conference ended in traditional gathering in the hotel “Žabljak”, where winners of IoTON and Hackathon received their awards, while sponsors and friends of this year’s conference received a thank you gift. Impressions were not settled until the morning after.
As hoped, Žabljak weather treated us right, we enjoyed plenty of ideas and good organization. We are pleased to have been a part of the IT conference and will continue to participate in such events in the future.
