At the end of July, a brave group of 32 students and 3 accompanying teachers from Salonta (Romania) undertook the long-awaited trip to Seville in search of a great experience of personal and professional growth, as they themselves confessed. Web development was their professional challenge and adapting to a totally new culture the personal one.
How went their professional challenge? Well, after getting familiar to the host company, their professional guide, the training program and the work strategy, our young people got the chance to explore the most relevant aspects of Front and Back-End development, made contact with mock-ups and created their own web designs and architectures. As they were real web development teams, our young programmers developed three projects for the host company: the official website, a video game web page and a new web app. After constant reviewing, designing and redesigning of their ideas, the teams were able to launch three wonderful projects at the end of the training.
What about the cultural challenge? During the three weeks of mobility, the students had the opportunity to explore the most visited corners of Seville through the City Tour, the River Cruise or the visit to Metropol Parasol. The Flamenco Show and the visit to the Bullring Arena gave the participants the opportunity to learn more about two of the symbols of the Spanish tradition. That was not all. Every day of the weekend, the young people were able to explore different cities on the Spanish coast, such as; Cádiz, Malaga and Marbella. Granada was another Spanish destinations for the group, while Faro gave them the opportunity to cross borders and have a first contact with Portuguese culture as well.
There is no doubt that the Erasmus+ adventure was unique for this Romanian group.
