Solenix Workshop - How much do you think you know about Java?24 March 2017

In this month’s Engineering Team workshop, we assessed our understanding of many concepts of Java. To that end, we took an individual assessment test inspired by the exams designed for the Oracle Certified Associate and Professional. Afterwards we discussed our answers in the group and revealed the correct solutions. The goal was to help the team identify strengths and weaknesses in their understanding of the core of the programming language that we use the most in our projects.


Solenix Talks - METERON presentation23 March 2017

On the last edition of the “Solenix Talks”, we learnt more about the work that our colleagues conduct at the European Space Operations Centre for the METERON project, the Multi-Purpose End To End Robotics Operations Network.
