In order to help our customers with their data management issues and solution selection, we often take part in trainings ourselves. A while ago, Evelyn and I went to Denmark for an intense week filled with Stibo training. The first day of our training included some exercises to better understand the concepts of Stibo STEP. One example was an exercise where we needed to create our own data model with relations between different object types and attributes that could contain specific values.
By increasing the difficulty of the course a little more every day, we were able to successfully finish our final exam and obtain our certificate. It was especially interesting since our classmates, the majority being Stibo employees, were open to sharing information about previous implementations. Learning from fellow-students and their experiences made the training even more educational. Thanks to our trainers, who kept the courses interesting, and plenty of exercises we gained a lot of additional knowledge about Stibo STEP and its functionalities.
However, not only the training at the Stibo headquarters was a big plus, the food at the office and in Denmark was also amazing and worth going back. It is really nice to see that YellowGround is not the only company that strives for a healthy work environment, but that we can also align with our partners on such matters.
We were lucky to have a hotel that was situated in the city center, so in the evenings we took some time off from studying for some sightseeing, since neither Evelyn or I had ever been in Denmark. A few nights, we got together with our co-students for dinner and got to know them a little bit better. We also went to the ARoS Aarhus art museum, where many pieces of modern art can be seen, and took a stroll along the coastline for an amazing view.
After a tiresome week, even though it was a lot of fun and very educational, we were happy to fly back home and see our colleagues and family again. And with our newly gained knowledge freshly available, we were really looking forward to tackling some new Stibo projects.
