In cooperation with SPARK business park, association Hello World is branded as SPARK school.
The demand for programmers, designers and project managers is increasing day by day, so we decided to launch the school in which the young people will acquire specific knowledge of certain development technologies, such as programming, design, mobile app development, electronics and operating systems.
We want to motivate young people for a career in the sector of information technology, but also to give them the possibility for practice and professional development.
SPARK school organizes free workshops, through which we want to create new developers, designers and project managers. Annually, there are two sets of workshops, and at the end of each cycle candidates who pass our tests are dedicated with certificates.
SPARKreators project will contribute to reducing the gap between the education sector in BiH and developed countries. Our desire is to give young people the most important tools for the future – self-awareness, critical thinking, technological literacy and modern approach to learning. We will donate more than 500 mBot robots to primary schools and associations that educate elementary age children throughout BiH. Read more.
Once you finish our workshops, other than learning new, interesting and useful things for your career, you can also get a chance to work in one of our member companies or become part of the SPARK startup program. Check out the workshop schedule:
There are two directions of mobile app development workshops – Android and iOS. The workshops will begin after we receive a sufficient number of applications.
ANDROID MOBILE APPS
In this workshop through lectures, exercises and assignments, participants will be familiar with the Android studio and learn how to make Android applications. They will learn how to create a dynamic UI, use the resources of the device, data management, and more. Upon completion of the beginners’ workshop, participants will independently develop apps with the help of their mentors.
Future designers can choose between two design workshops: UI/UX Design and 3D Design.
The workshop is designed for beginners and they you can learn the basics of working in design programs and get familiar with the design of User Interface for the web and mobile platforms. UI/UX Design workshop will start in October 2017.
The workshop is divided into four phases. In the first phase, participants will become familiar with 3DS Max tool for creating geometry. This is followed by modeling phase where the participants will model various objects. In the third phase, students will make the system controller (Rig) and thus be prepared for animation modeling. Finally, in the fourth phase, participants will learn how to revive the model from an animation. 3D Design workshop will start in January 2018.
Linux Basics is a workshop designed for beginners who want to acquire basic skills in one of today’s most sought after branches in the IT industry – Linux System Administration. The aim of the workshop is to familiarize students with the basics of installation, configuration, and maintenance (administration) of the Linux operating system and introduce them to more complex topics such as network administration, data security, and system containerization. The workshops will start in October 2017.
At the IT Project Management workshop, you will learn about characteristics of IT projects, their main success factors, and project manager’s characteristics. The workshop consists of: model management, group processes, planning and project selection, and management of time, cost and human resources.
Beginner’s workshop in progress – applications closed until August 2017.
At SPARK school, you can choose between two directions of programming workshops – Web and Node.js programming.
The web programming workshops consist of three parts: Beginner’s, Frontend and Backend. If you’re into Web programming, these workshops are ideal for you. The workshop is launched once a month, in groups of maximum 20 participants.
Waiting time: up to six months for the Beginner’s workshop after signing up
