During December 2018 SymlConnect secured a further student placement through the GoWales Scheme. Luke Hengstenberg is a third year Computer Science degree student studying at Swansea Univeristy. SymlConnect were suitably impressed with Luke’s positive ‘can do’ attitude, he was able to immediately start working on an ongoing project working individually and alongside our in-house development team, and effectively contributed to internal development meetings.
Lukes contribution to the project whilst he was with us pre-Christmas was invaluable, SymlConnect will undoubtedly maintain strong communications and encourage future work opportunities with Luke. The entire SymlConnect Team would like to wish Luke all the very best with his studies.
