Chiara: Hi Felix, what are your tasks as a trainee in the field of IT system integration?
Felix: Hello Chiara, although some tasks are of course repetitive, my training in general is very versatile. It starts with picking the components from our warehouse and goes on with preparing delivery notes and finally playing the operating system onto the harddrive. Then, one whole PC can be built and customized with all these little pieces. Next to the daily business tasks I worked on some projects with my colleagues. For instance, we organize our server room, and also installed our new telephone system in a virtual machine. In doing so, I can learn things that are not that common.
Chiara: And what do you learn in the business school?
Felix: There are subjects that probably every trainee knows, like “Politics and Society” or English. But the system integration training also includes “information technology systems”. Here you get a good overview of the basic electronics of a network and also the software that’s based on this. Also virtual machines were a part of our schedule. In each of the information-technological fields application development plays a role: We are learning with the base of C++. No worries, it doesn’t have that much to do with math as many think, but without it it’s also not possible.
Chiara: What do you like most about your work at spo-comm?
Felix: I am generally interested in technology, old and new. In my private time it's mostly the audio editing field, production and retro technology. I was very young when I came in touch with PCs. Since Pentium 2 times I had the chance to experiment with, first with invalided out computer parts, and try stuff out. I had fun doing this back then and now doing this as my profession makes me very happy. I get along with my colleagues very well. The most different challenges are being mastered flexibly and together.
Chiara: What’s your favourite Mini-PC?
Felix: That's pretty hard to tell. As a fan of 19" racks the first one that comes to my mind is our NINETEEN. In my opininion it is the most unique system of all. In regards to the mini PCs it would be the CORE 2: It's really impressive what is possible on such small space. If I had to choose one for gaming I would take the KUMO V with its Nvidia graphics card. I think our product range has a PC for every different application.
Chiara: We are very happy to have you in our team!
