Summer and winter schools is a joint project of MERA branch in Nizhny Novgorod and Nizhny Novgorod State Lobachevsky University aimed at fostering students’ software development skills. Besides, it is a wonderful chance for students to have a first-hand experience of real-world software engineering practices, master their English, find new friends and feel themselves part of a team of MERA professionals.
The curriculum of summer and winter schools includes a series of lectures on various IT technologies and programming languages, individual projects and English language practice. All trainings are delivered by experienced MERA software engineers. Students are entitled to free lunches, coffee breaks and invited to participate in team building activities. Upon completion of training, each student defends an individual final project in front of MERA managers.
