Ferienakademie 2015

thumbnail for this post

This year I participated in Stefan Wagner’s team “Extreme Coder Camp” where we focussed on developing software using an agile strategy, called Scrum. We developed an Eclipse-Plugin for the programming language “CamlLight” using the agile approach.

The standup-meeting in the morning ensured that everybody has an appropriate work to do for the day and to see how the progress has been since yesterday. The results were noted in our breakdown-chart. All exercises were stored in our backlog with an estimate for the work effort. This makes it simpler to pick an exercise to be done next.

I participated in the famous “Durnholz-Lauf” which is a 5K run around a mountain like in Durnholz. I finished the run in 23 minutes with an average pace of 4:47min/km.

Lake Run

Sarntal is a high valley – this means that it is surrounded by beautiful mountains with excellent hiking trails.
