In an interactive conversation, the Design Team will demonstrate how the design of a website or an app influences user behaviour. This conversation will be followed by a practical exercise where they are shown how to consistently and purposefully use design in an app or on a website. Last year, the participants developed a Justin Bieber web shop.
Coding (i.e. programming) is a very important element of IT and the core task of our partner ThoughtWorks. Every week, the team members meet for a "RoboNight" where they build small robots and teach them behaviours like for example identifying colours.
And that is precisely what the Girls' Day participants will do: they will experiment with microcontrollers and LEDs, write a code to simulate traffic lights and teach the robots to follow a line.
