“Find the IT Hero in You”

From July 17 through July 28, Comtrade hosted its 21st EDIT — the Summer School of Programming — at six locations in three countries: in Ljubljana, Maribor, Sarajevo, Banja Luka, Belgrade and Kragujevac.

During two weeks, over 100 participants had an opportunity to learn about the latest trends in IT and to check their academic knowledge in an actual work environment.

As is the norm at EDIT, the main topics were selected among some of the most talked-about technologies and trends and included chatbots, UX/UI, security incidents and IoT. The students have also learned about key tools, development environments, and methodologies.


#EDIT17  in Ljubljana and Maribor was also open for international students, who explored the following themes:

  • Ljubljana, July 17-28, 2017: Hacking the hackers with security incidents analytics & insights

Students have used Bot Builder SKD open-code solutions and Microsoft’s Cognitive Services, a cloud service that recognizes different languages, text, emotions and other API integrations. Their final product was then integrated into a communication platform and tested for efficiency and effectiveness.

The students have learned how to:
