Twice a year we invite a number of University students to join our Cape Town team during their holidays. As part of the SOLIDitech Work Experience Program, they dive right into the workings of the company; they work with the teams on very real business problems, commit real code and eat plenty of doughnuts. We design it like this so that the students have access to and experience within a real working environment.
The interns joined the team during the 2019 University Winter holidays and were with us for three whole weeks. They got to work on a dedicated project using Java, Tomcat, Docker and React. Each of the Interns left the office having learnt a lot about leadership, team work and software integration. It was an absolute pleasure working with them and we are very proud of what they achieved.
Here are our Winter 2019 Interns:

“The SOLIDitech Work Experience Program has been a very beneficial experience for me. I’ve learnt so much at SOLID, and it has been a really good insight into a software developer’s world. I feel a lot more confident going into the software development field because of it. I definitely would recommend The SOLIDitech Work Experience Program to anyone looking to go into the software development field.” – Matthew Almano, 2017 & 2019 Intern
