Participants of Innovecs Summer Internship Program Have Presented Their Projects
Summer Internship Program (SIP) is all about growing our own talents in-house. We have created it as a platform to offer opportunities to the next generation of budding software engineers. This is not only of a benefit to interns but is also a way of building a pipeline for future leaders, and thus enriching the whole industry with new talents.SIP started at the end of August 2019 and lasted for 12 weeks. After thorough assessments, six talented interns joined Innovecs for 12 weeks to learn from our leading Engineering experts and develop their projects in InnoCamp. The internship process involved an initial bootcamp, mentoring, and enrollment in an ongoing education program. It also included a project assignment that interns were responsible for and a final project presentation.The SIP’s key feature is about making it possible to implement the ideas of our current employees with the trainees being involved in the process. Among the 10 most promising ideas, we have chosen three to make them real. All in all, six interns have worked in pairs to develop and represent these projects set to enhance the level of employees’ engagement in the company:Café Credits: a service for cash-free purchases at InnoHub Bar — a local office café. It allows people to buy real items at the bar by paying with virtual credits, that were awarded to employees in terms of employees’ engagement program. For example, you can use 3 credits to buy a coffee and an éclair. Intern Campus: an application to manage interns’ achievements and awards in terms of the internship program. It also includes additional features such as feedback, status, mentorships, and allows us to monitor the general success of each intern. Career Path: an innovative product which helps employees who are looking towards professional growth opportunities to plan their career within a company. It empowers HR specialists with a tool to create career maps and add position requirements and skills.Each team consisted of one Front-end and one Back-end intern developer. To ensure effectiveness during the work process, they were guided by individual mentors and the idea creators in the role of a product owner. As a result of their successful internship at Innovecs, trainees have received offers to join the team as Intern Software Engineers. This is what our interns say about the program:

Is Microservices Architecture Only About the Benefits?
Microservices architecture is not a new thing in software development. However, today this approach to building applications is actively gaining traction. In 2018, Camunda conducted research and surveyed 354 companies to determine the value of microservices adoption for fulfilling digital transformation initiatives. Around 63% of respondents mentioned that the transition to microservices helped them improve user experience, employee efficiency, and save on development and infrastructure tools. The respondents also identified top reasons why they had switched to microservices:Additional reasons for switching to the microservices Today, developing a monolithic program comes with various challenges. For example, the more complicated the composition of the monolith is, the more difficult it is for developers to properly maintain it. Let’s take a look at a scenario where there are many teams working on the same monolithic program. If team B fails to deliver high-quality code, it blocks the other teams from pushing their error-free code to the environment. So, all teams wait till team B fixes the code and tries to deploy it again. All teams are dependant on each other, which results in constant delays in delivering features.Additionally, adopting new technologies while having a monolith application can be a very slow process. For example, if you want to apply a new framework, you must rewrite all the code, which can also become a huge challenge and lead to crashes. To minimize these risks, software companies have started actively using microservices application structure. However, this “monolith → microservices” transition may come with its own challenges. So, in this blog post, we are going to cover the following topics:The peculiarities of microservices architecture and some examples Benefits of microservices and drawbacks that can occur along with these benefits Successful cases of switching to microservices structure
