20th EDIT – Comtrade’s IT summer school kicks off in Ljubljana and four more cities: Two More Cities To Follow Next Week

16-07-Mon

Comtrade’s traditional IT Summer School began today, welcoming students to its company-based campuses in Slovenia (in Ljubljana and Maribor), Bosnia and Herzegovina (in Sarajevo and Banja Luka), and Ireland (in Dublin). Campuses in Serbia (Belgrade and Kragujevac) will open in one week.

EDIT” (“Education for Innovative Thinkers”) first started 20 years ago with ten students. Now there’s 106 of them, in seven cities. Starting today, through July 29, EDIT2016 will provide them with two weeks of learning, project work, team building, fun activities and an overall unforgettable experience.

Each campus has a pre-selected topic, ranging from Mobility as a Service, through the Internet of Things, to Cloud and Microservices. By working on specific projects, to be applied in real life, students will update their school knowledge. By doing practical work in small teams, they will learn group dynamics, leadership challenges, and project management first hand. That practical side –insight into what it’s like to work in a real workplace, with real co-workers – is what participants of previous programs highlight as the greatest benefit gained at EDIT.

Already a leading IT summer school in Southeast Europe, EDIT expanded to include Ireland this year. More than 400 of the brightest, most talented students from technology high schools and universities have applied this year. This year’s program was also open to international students – applicants from countries beyond those where Comtrade is located. Since EDIT’s first iteration in Ljubljana 20 years ago, more than 1,000 students have attended the summer program.

The 20th anniversary of EDIT has a festive side as well. The Ljubljana campus is the venue of the anniversary celebration, scheduled for 4 PM, on Monday, July 11. All alumni of EDIT Slovenia, where the school originated, are invited.

Can team building get any better than this? We enjoyed a nice day out in Banja Luka, kayaking down the river Vrbas. It was a great way to get in touch with nature and relax after all the hard work 🚣‍🚣‍ #EDITworld
