The Project v.1

The Project v.1

As a team, we are passionate about our work, and we believe in the power of knowledge. Because of that, we wanted to share our passion and challenge technology with others.

This is how The Project v.1 was born!


We wanted to connect with people with similar interests and together, aim to be better professionals. We also wanted to share our mindset and give them the opportunity to work on a real project and have a hands-on experience.

The Project v.1 started with a Workshop from 2nd of April 2019, until 30th of May. The workshop was held at the Programming Pool Hub, str. Transilvaniei 18A.

We worked with small groups of interested individuals. That way, we could focus on each and every one of the participants. We could better explain every aspect of our jobs and offer them insights into what we’re doing.

The Workshop participants had the chance to learn and practice with our in-house professionals, 3 of the most in-demand skills in Software Development:

  • Business Analysis

    From Idea to Product Support, with emphasis on the most important phases: Elicitation- Strategy Analysis Requirements and Analysis Design Supporting activities.

  • Development (𝗖# & 𝗦𝗤𝗟)

    They learned about the software development life cycle, starting from defining use cases based on provided specifications. The end result was to actually implement a proof on concept following clean architecture principles. The main focus was on C# and Microsoft specific technologies.

  • Testing

    The participants worked on the products delivered by the developers. They followed the Full Testing Cycle to ensure that no bugs were found and that the product was clean and ready to be used.

Each one of the three learning streams had 10 participants, chosen based on the Event Registration Questionaire.

The Workshop took place in a span of 8 weeks, in which the participants were given constant feedback on their work.

The main focus of the workshop was practice. For each knowledge area, the participants applied the learning on a common project. At the end of those 8 weeks, they had a Final Exam.

The top 3 from each learning stream will be given the change to work on The Project as part of our Programming Pool Team.

The Project offers the opportunity to be part of the Software Development Cycle for a period of two months. It spans from 1st of July 2019 to 1st of September 2019, with continuous feedback from our team and a hiring possibility based on performance.

We also learned alongside the participants from doing this workshop and we can’t wait to meet them again for the second phase of The Project v.1

See you on the 1st of July!

I highly appreciated the friendly and fun way of teaching. This made me love coming to the course, and I wasn’t reluctant to ask questions if I did not understand something. I would have liked to have been able to work with other classmates (the last course hour to be a team-based work on the knowledge gained).

I liked the fact that we could freely express our opinions without being judged if what we said was good or bad and I would have liked if we got more practical examples.

I enjoyed the employers’ patience and perseverance. It was a very friendly and enjoyable environment. I would have liked a longer time to get more information.

Adelina, DEV
