Introducing Swift to 80+ students

We held the intro course of the iPraktikum on April 19-25, in which we introduced over 80 students to the programming language Swift, concepts of iOS development as well as software engineering workflows they will need in the course. The course took place in the Rechnerhalle to fit all participants in one room at the same time. In 10 sessions, the participants completed interactive in-class exercises as well as homework in cooperation with tutors who are experienced iOS developers.

Zeiss Meditec Customer Sales Representative Assistant App rolled out in Germany and Mexico

In close cooperation with Carl Zeiss Meditec AG, a team of 7 students developed a mobile app that makes the life of ZEISS customer sales representatives easier. As part of the iPraktikum WS16/17, the team used agile development techniques to build the solution sales representatives really needed.

The app is currently being rolled out in Mexico and Germany. During the development process, the team identified two main use cases: ordering and stock taking. Until now, sales representatives were not able to cover these two use cases in a completely digital way. The team interviewed potential users in Mexico and Germany to identify the problems in the existing processes for these two use cases to prototype and develop a new improved solution. The close cooperation between industry partners and the Chair for Applied Software Engineering gives students the chance to work on real life problems with real customers. Even more, the students’ innovative, young and technology-driven approach is a huge opportunity for companies like ZEISS to prototype, develop and rollout new solutions in a fast way.

Carl Zeiss Meditec is happy to be part of the line-up for the iPraktikum summer term 2017 and looking forward to another success story driven by the engagement of young software engineers taking part in the Praktikum.

BSB Navigator is published to Apple's AppStore

We are proud to announce the launch of BSB Navigator to the AppStore. BSB Navigator is an indoor navigation app for the Bavarian State Library, developed in cooperation with Bokowsky + Laymann during iOS Praktikum in summer term 2015 .

Bavarian State Library (BSB) is one of the largest libraries in Germany and offers diverse services and facilities to more than 3000 visitors per day. Finding different facilities in the large historical building with about 30,000 square meter on 5 floors is difficult, specially for new visitors. The BSB Navigator app solves this problem by offering several features such as interactive maps, indoor navigation, and guided tours. A team of 8 students developed the app during the practical course iPraktikum in summer term 2015. The project not only involved the development of the app, but also setting up a beacon-based indoor navigation infrastructure with more than 240 beacons and signal measurements in the whole coverage area. Only hours after the release, the app received a substantial media coverage, among others in Süddeutsche Zeitung and heise.de.
