Cylex Summer Internship 2016 - Programming has never been more fun!Published on 10/19/2016 - 11:39
Our summer was more rewarding than ever! These past few months we hosted an internship program for students, where they learned to program a drone. If it sounds too cool to be true, it isn’t - read on below.
Oh, September - your arrival means summer has officially come to an end, with no regard whatsoever for our feelings about its sudden departure. We’ll get over it eventually, but besides the change in weather, for us at Cylex the end of summer also brings an end to our internship program. And boy, was it a terrific one this year :)
Here’s how it all went down:
- May: everything begins somewhere, and our journey began with recruitment interviews and candidate selection. We had such an amazing turnout and the process of choosing only a dozen students was more difficult than we thought. However, we came up with a great group of kids, willing to work on their skills, improve themselves and have some fun in the meantime: after all, they were about to find out how to control a drone (how cool is that?!)
And eventually, the end result was more than satisfying. Look at the drone make its way up!
It took some collective work, it had its ups and downs, but it was more than worthwhile to see all their hard work (and the code they wrote) materialize into a drone control app.
Not to brag, but we had an amazing group of students this summer. We learned so much from one another! There was laughing, there was bonding, it was fun and it was a summer of great results and experiences.
We couldn’t be any prouder of them and their achievements at Cylex!
