Lecture 1: Software development in logistics (Melanie Bruns, PSI Logistics)

Lecture 2: Software Engineer, Architect, Project Manager, Consultant, ... - every project is different (Stephan Müller, adesso Paderborn)

to lecture 1:

When complex algorithms meet the reality of a modern warehouse, exciting problems arise: How to efficiently design via SQL that there is not too much booze in one place. How to get the order that was never defined in the specifications out the door because the truck driver is waiting. And what bugs you find when temporary workers without any knowledge of German use the dialogs for the first time that you have written in your office. I'm talking here about the decision not to pursue a doctorate, the subsequent move to an unfamiliar city, and my first job in software development.

The company PSI Logistics GmbH develops logistics software in Dortmund and Aschaffenburg. There is plenty to do here, with everything that belongs to logistics: from baggage carousels at airports, to routing problems with e-trucks, to optimizing where the next department store will be built. If you like programming but also feel comfortable in security shoes, you'll fit in perfectly here.

Melanie Bruns studied computer science with a master's degree in Paderborn. She has been a software developer at PSI Logistics since 2018 and now works as a technical project manager. Melanie is a member of the “Matikers”.

Depending on your interests and focus - which can of course change over the years - working for an IT service provider offers a variety of diverse tasks and roles - whether as a software engineer, architect, project manager, consultant, subject matter expert, test manager, ... And one thing is definitely certain - every project is different.
