Atskats uz semināru Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto 8.-16.08.2015
Šī gada augustā ar iRobot, Rīgas Tehniskās universitātes, Rīgas Tehniskās koledžas un RTU Studentu Parlamenta atbalstu notika LC Riga rīkotais starptautiskais seminārs, kura tēma bija roomba robotu programmēšana. Seminārā piedalījās 16 dalībnieki no dažādām Eiropas valstīm. Nedēļas laikā dalībnieki mācījās programmēt iRobotus, kā arī apmeklēja IT demo centru, kur uzzināja par aktualitātēm IT jomā. Ārpus akadēmiskās daļas dalībniekiem bija iespēja iepazīt Rīgu orientējoties pa pilsētu un pildot dažādus uzdevumus City Rally laikā, kā arī nedēļas nogalē tika rīkota motivācijas nedēļas nogale Latvijas lauku stilā, kur dalībnieki un organizatori atpūtās pēc garās darba nedēļas sēžot ap ugunskuru, piedaloties sporta aktivitātēs un izbaudot Latvijas lauku mieru.
Te ir pasākuma atskats no dalībnieces Martas no Polijas:
LC Riga IS BACK! And they did it in the best possible way. I still can’t believe that “Domo Arigato Mr. Roboto had to come to an end. Organizers’s effort and dedication was clearly visible at every aspects of this workshop. They have managed to find a perfect balance between academic part, sightseeing and partying. Combination of two very popular technologies, Internet of Things and programming iRobots as an academic part was a major reason why I applied for this workshop. During lectures participants had an opportunity to learn how Microsoft deals with IoT. IoT part was interesting but working on iRobots was amazing. Experienced lecturers provided to us necessary knowledge and support at every step of bringing to life robots. Involvement of participants and organizers resulted with one and only Ms. Dorp Sucker 🙂
Every workshop is balance between learning and having fun thus organizer’s made sure that we won’t be bored at evenings. Diversity of parties and other activities were great, we have been playing beer pong, singing at karaoke and dancing salsa. Of course I couldn’t forget about my new favourite pub and its speciality – Satan shots.
This was my first visit in Riga and I’m absolutely astonished by old town’s charming beauty. Beautiful views and friendly citizens creates unique city’s atmosphere, which we could experince during City Rally.
LC Riga not only organized workshop but also motivational weekend at picturesque latvian countryside. For me those two days were the best part of whole event. Surrounded by fields and forests we spent time on playing volleyball, swimming, relaxing but also on developing soft skills.
Parties around bonfire like theme party “Farmer seeks his wife” were great chance to talk with others participants and organizers but also to admire starry latvian night sky.
Saying goodbye and leaving Latvia was sad moment for everyone. I can’t wait to see soon all of you somewhere around Europe.
