Teaching project “HaLT” wins prize

During my time in Hannover, I participated in developing the HaLT application. In fact, this application was developed in a distributed eXtreme Programming class I taught at Leibniz Universität Hannover in collaboration with TU Clausthal. We were proud to work with a non-profit organization to develop an Android App that should help young people to cope with emergencies due to alcohol misuse.

It was a great pleasure, when Sabine Kowalewski (the project owner and our onsite-customer back then) told me today that the HaLT application won a national prize!

Congratulations to Sabine Kowalewski and the team at Suchtberatung-Herzberg, to the student who participated in the project, to the software engineering group in Hannover, and to the software systems engineering group in Clausthal.

    • Thank you, it really was a pleasure. Amazing, what can be done when a great idea and a great team (including a wonderful onsite customer) comes together. I think we all had lots of fun working on this together and that is what can be seen in the product.
