About This Project

During their two-week stay these 16 Polish students participated in a life-changing traineeship at a local host company in order to improve their professional skills and put their technical knowledge into practice. During their stay these students will be introduced to new programming techniques and devices which will help them to better understand their professional field of work.

Their main tasks included the following:

  • —Installation and configuration of software of Emulation on Virtual Mobile Devices (Genymotion)
  • —Creation of the first Android project “Hello World!”
  • —Design of an interface with the different types of Layouts: RelativeLayout, LinearLayout, TableLayout
  • —Design of a personalized ListView by an Adapter and generic
  • —Design of a relational database in Android, using the ORM greenDAO
  • —Implementation of a CRUD app with greenDAO
  • —Communication with servers with RESTFul API (an own server will be used
  • —Design and implementation of advertising banner in apps with AdMob
  • —Use of PARSE service

During their stay this motivated group managed to successfully complete their internship and fulfill all the required criteria. But apart from work, there was plenty of spare time left for them to explore the gorgeous Sevillian city and its many attractions. Moreover, they also took part in an exciting cultural trip to Córdoba.

PARTICIPANTS’ OPINIONS

—Damian Wilczek:

The trip was a great opportunity for me to gain more work experience. I’ve learned a lot about Android programming, I have gotten to know a lot more about interesting features and algoritms. I’ve seen Android through the eyes of the developer. Our teacher Miguel helped me a lot in many aspects. And the practices were a great opportunity to get to know the culture and traditions of Spain. We were sightseeing Sevilla and were learning Spanish language. Thanks to the project I could try traditional Spanish food, I loved it! Euromind project is a great opportunity to spend some time practicing and learning new things about your specialisation. Everything was coordinated by  Anastazia Mróz .Thank you Euromind for such an amazing time!’

 —Piotr Wicenciak:

‘My apprenticeship in Spain was a great opportunity to improve myself. I learned many things about programming in Android from a great teacher Miguel. I could also learn about culture of this warm country. I think  that the experiences that I have gained during those 2 weeks will help me a lot in the future to get a well paid job which will give me a lot of satisfaction. The project euroMind is a really big opportunity for young people who want to become experts in their profession. I’m really thankful to this organisation and our coordinator Anastazja who helped us a lot with our communication and Inma who cooked great Spanish dishes.’
