An internship at WidasConcepts does not mean making coffee and copying documents. Here, you’ll be integrated after a short and intensive training in internal as well as external projects. Based on this, you can convince us of your skills and ideas.
Jan-Henrik used this opportunity to learn about the tasks and responsibilities of an IT consultant, during his internship.

Favourite saying/-quoteSo Long, and Thanks for All the Fish
In which team do you work?
Internet of Things
What are your tasks/responsibilities?
I am currently working on a client project. My area of responsibility here, is to take care of the development of a few subcomponents of the application.
What was your biggest success?
With respect to only my internship: that I could help my colleagues on different topic areas in the development with my knowledge.
How did you come to know of WidasConcepts?
In my search for an internship I initially lacked the orientation, since the field of computer science is vast and one can opt from many different subject areas.  Because of this diversity, our university currently offers counselling for students looking for internships, so they can inform themselves about different companies. This is how I came to know of Widas.
My internship at WidasConcepts…
… Is exciting and challenging. I particularly loved that I could work independently and the way I was teamed up in developing a new software project.

WidasConcepts thanks Jan-Henrik for the great support that he has lent us during his internship. We hope that we could encourage him in his IT pursuit and wish him well in his professional and private future endeavours – and to seeing again soon!

Favourite saying/ -quoteI am interested more in the future than the past, because that is where I intend to live.

In which team do you work?
Internet of Things
What are your tasks/responsibilities?
There were 2 major projects in which I participated. In “Team”, the internal time tracking software, I programmed both interface as well as the logic. My main work here were to adapt the intelligent search “ElasticSearch” so as to be able to easily search on customers / projects and the synchronization of the internal database with the CRM vendor Salesforce. With an ongoing client project, I was in charge of work related to its architecture, database connectivity with MongoDB, Implementation of REST- interfaces, also integration of SOAP services of the parent company.
What was your biggest success?
The architectural design and implementation in an ongoing project. In the course of my studies there were no projects with such large scope. To be able to design the concept and then implement, gave me the feeling of having achieved something great.
How did you come to know of Widas?

My Internship at WidasConcepts…
… Was very interesting, instructive and exciting. Initially, I had the feeling of being left off on my very own. Getting familiar with completely new themes was difficult, but colleagues gladly helped me with my questions, making it easier and after the training period, I real quickly learnt a lot of new things. I would rate my development in Widas as very good. I really liked the collegial atmosphere within the company as well.

Christian helped us a lot during his internship with us here at WidasConcepts and we thank him for that. We wish him success with his studies, which he will be taking up again in spring. We are happy that Christian had a feeling of belonging here with us and are sure he will take-back with him fond memories of the last 6 months.
