On the 26th of July, it finally happened; CoderDojo Iasi visited the Heaven Solutions offices. CoderDojo is an international movement that started out in Ireland in 2011. Their vision is to provide kids who are interested in IT with an informal learning environment. This includes regular sessions lead by volunteers who also organise events and company visits.
And who says the new generation of IT professionals does not have high expectations? Our team prepared this event with the same commitment and attention to detail as if it were a regular client. Finally, at 11am we could welcome 10 highly interested youngsters who were filled with curiosity and passion learning more about the world of Information Technology. Nevertheless, a neutral observer would have had a hard time deciding who was actually more excited, the HS team or the new generation!
Once everybody was handed out a name-tag and seated, Alexandra started with the introduction of the company. Of course, we kept this to the minimum then we all know that the guys did not come here to hear a 30min presentation but rather to get their heads around actual computers and systems. Therefore, a 5min presentation had to do it.
The group split up into three, allowing the HS team members to introduce their area of work in much more detail. Topics covered were apps, smart-watch, 3D scanning, iRobot, and Raspberry pi. Especially the iRobot got everyone really thrilled. Then again even we at the office love to play with it so no wonder they liked it.
We hope that we at Heaven Solutions were able to open their eyes to the fast-moving world of technology and could share with them our very own experience, working in this industry. Time flies by and they will be the service providers of tomorrow and we might just have made a difference.
