Transfer Solutions employs around 170 consultants, project leaders, testers, developers and DBAs. They live and breathe Oracle, OutSystems and Java technology, and they are very happy to share their extensive knowledge and experience with others. They know that sharing knowledge works best in an informal and personal atmosphere, as they explain below. Please note: these are just a few of the trainers that can work with your group.
“After studying Biomedical Sciences at VU University Amsterdam, I continued by studying Bioinformatics at Wageningen University. I have been working at Transfer Solutions since 2011. The switch to IT involved completing a full Oracle learning track at our Transfer Education branch. That’s how I got to know Transfer Education, and experienced what it is like to be taught by enthusiastic people as a student.
As a consultant I mainly work on projects where new technology is applied in a short timeframe. These are mainly projects with a strong web component (web services, front end development).”
“I obtained a first-degree teaching qualification, but never taught high school: this was mainly due to the general lack of motivation of the students there.
Teaching at Transfer Solutions is completely different. The students of Transfer Solutions are highly motivated and that makes teaching so much more fun: these students challenge me, get the best out of me and in return get the best out of me. Besides having fun teaching, I also enjoy programming. I always hope that during my lessons I can also transfer some of that enthusiasm.”
“Learning is more than just increasing your knowledge base. A licensing workshop might hardly seem spectacular, but is oftentimes quite an adventure. For someone who has dealt with licensing rules regularly, they become coherent and less sizeable. Despite the documentation published by Oracle (the “jurisdiction”), “jurisprudence” is much more common, which can lead to quite different results, even in seemingly similar cases.
The challenge for participants is to find a recognizable pattern in the examples garnered from real use-cases.
Chances are that in the past one outcome has been completely different from another. By trying to understand the rationale behind these cases as a group, this workshop grants insight into the process and leads to learning. My day is made when my students not only know how everything comes together after this workshop, but also see possibilities to be creative with the rules.”
