In the end of this summer season, we’re proud to announce that we’ve successfully completed this summer internship program. It was such an amazing experience for both sides, HASELT team and the team of interns. We’ve had challenging things to solve, great working environment and unforgettable team experiences.
We’ve created this program with a purpose to help students who are willing to learn new things and make the first practical step towards entering in the software development industry. After tough choice of picking the best candidates for the program, with just an idea of sharing our knowledge with these young and ambitious people, now we’ve reached a point where we have six well-trained professionals ready to shine. Our team at HASELT was happy to mentor, supervise and work with them on a daily basis.
After setting up a team that consists of software development, design and quality assurance profiles, they've been assigned to work on internal project management tool from scratch, practicing Extreme Programming. The whole project was planned and implemented with Domain Driven Design practices and principles.
The project was mainly .NET C# based, incorporating Hexagonal Architecture, implementing a mediator pipeline with Commands & Queries. On database side, they’ve used and abused PostgreSQL's JSON features making it work like hybrid document and relational database by using the neat Marten library. Unit tests were written in a mixed approach of test-before and test-after.
With their unbreakable will to learn and develop a solution from scratch, accompanied by the attention and care that was given to them by the mentors, they’ve successfully completed the project as a whole.
We have to admit that we had so much fun in the past two months and we would like to THANK our interns for taking part in this program. You’re group of smart people with bright future. It was such a pleasure having you as part of our team.
Whole HASELT team wishes you the best of luck!
