Talents

What they said past attendees

Andraž Filej

"Two weeks of unforgettable work, even though I kept sending new, ‘improved' Excel versions to my project manager during the first few days. I drank lots of water and spent countless hours playing with Lego." 

Julija Černe

"I'm truly grateful to have been able to be part of this project. It was an excellent opportunity for young people to learn something new and, on the other hand, show what we can do. The workshop was modern and well designed, and I hope others follow BS's example." 

Batolomej Kozorog

"Through the NTH workshop I was able, for the first time in my life, to gain hands-on experience in how to develop a technological project as a team. With the help of experienced mentors and lecturers, I acquired applied knowledge, skills and experience in computer science and entrepreneurship, which will come in handy in my further career." 

Jakob Drusany

"The NTH workshop gave me the chance to experience teamwork in R&D and see what my future profession looks like. On top of all the knowledge and skills I gained, I also had lots of fun." 

Aljaž Krpan

"We produced a ready-for-sale product from scratch in just ten days, which I think was pretty incredible. I think these workshops are an excellent starting point for anyone, in terms of both the work experience gained and the contacts made there." 

Miha Pahor

"Two weeks of focused work, which brought forward your leadership and teamwork skills and your ability to use your technical skills in practice, were an eye-opener for me. I realised that talent helps you start, but lots of hard work and commitment are needed if you want things to go smoothly and end in success." 

We want You!

Do you have experience of programming or online and mobile technologies, or do you enjoy doing research on particle acceleration, aviation and space technology, or all this in combination with smart city technology? Sign up for this unique workshop today because the number of places is limited. 

Do you accept the challenge?

Together with a team of selected talents and supported by experienced mentors you'll have to acquire and process data produced by the particle accelerator nicknamed Speedy Gonzales. 

You'll have to present the data acquired in a creative and interesting way in an online or mobile app tailored to a dummy customer called Gordon. 

Win a prize of EUR 1,500!

Mentors

Experience and expertise of the best IT specialists

Mentorship is important not only because of the expertise and experience the participants gain, but also and primarily because of the opportunity to socialise in a professional work setting, which facilitates the entry into a new work environment. 

Erik Simonič

Developer

"I've been working in IT for twenty years now, and it keeps coming back to the fact that the key to success is sharing knowledge. This is the only way to improve our knowledge and work really homogeneously as a team. I'll be happy to give useful tips to the young talents and share the expertise I've gained in my career with them." 

Dean Podgornik

Developer

"While the young participants are getting to know and learning about the IT industry, I'll help them make their work run as smoothly as possible by giving them programming advice and sharing tricks with them, including the nerdiest ones. I know a good mentor is worth his weight in gold, so I'll do my best to help the participants learn as much from me as possible." 

Luka Bogataj

Inženir

"I'm involved in the development of electronics in a company where every project presents us with new challenges. Consequently, we continuously acquire new expertise and learning is an important part of this. Because the problems I encounter as a developer are complex, this inevitably also requires teamwork." 

Aleš Vigali

Inženir

"I'm a test engineer at Instrumentation Technologies. Every day I deal with rapid signal capture devices, which are primarily used in particle accelerators across the globe. In this, I use the knowledge of elementary-particle physics I acquired at the University of Ljubljana Faculty of Mathematics and Physics. I'm aware of the importance of transferring knowledge to younger generations, and I'll do my best to pass it on myself."
