OpenHack IoT & Data – 28. – 30. Mai

Als CSE (Commercial Software Engineering) können wir Kunden beim Umsetzen von herausfordernden Cloud Projekten unterstützen. Ende Mai bieten wir als Readiness Maßnahme einen dreitägigen OpenHack zu IoT & Data an. Für alle Entwickler die sich mit diesen Themen beschäftigen eigentlich ein Muß.

Wir geben bei den OpenHacks den Teilnehmern, also Euch, Aufgaben, die Ihr selber lösen müßt. So ergibt sich eine enorm hohe Lerneffizienz und ein bemerkenswerter Wissenstransfer.
Zielteilnehmer: Alle die entwickeln können: Developer, Architekten, Data Scientists, …

Falls ihr Euch also aktiv mit den Themen IoT & Data auseinandersetzt oder auseinander setzen wollt, dann kommt selber oder schickt andere Entwickler. Ihr könnt Euch dann gemeinsam mit den Software Engineers der CSE mal so richtig in das Thema reinknien.
Ah ja: Ganz wichtig: Eigenen Laptop mitnehmen und “come prepare to Hack!!”. Kein Marketing, kein Sales. Hacking pur!!
