Zukunftstag 2017

April 2017 - Each year towards the end of April German school kids get the chance to participate in the “Zukunftstag” (girls & boys day) spending the day in a company or business they are interested in.

Zukunftstag 2017

This year, Airpas Aviation welcomed three boys and one girl, to look behind the scenes of “the home of the most efficient airline cost management and route profitability solution”.

After a warm welcome, the office tour and a general introduction to the core features and functionalities of the software solution the kids were familiarized with tec life:

  • introduction to software development including how to become a software developer and what it means to be one,
  • sneak-preview of the deployment process and the setup of new Airpas customer environment,
  • participation in daily standup meeting and in the estimation poker, gaining insight into agile software development,
  • time with the support team and understanding the daily tasks.

They were extremely impressed after taking a look into some central tables of the Airpas database: flights and invoices. Together with an Airpas senior developer they built a SQL query to sum up the invoices of one year and came to the incredible number of 10 Billion Euros!

“Much better than going to school”, they stated in unison at the end of the day. At least the boys could picture themselves becoming future software developers. Especially Java Developers because that’s the universal Minecraft language.
