The SOLID Work Experience Program is designed to give students access to and experience within a real working environment. We host the program twice a year at our Kenilworth offices in Cape Town. We fully incorporate the Interns into our teams – working side-by-side, attending meetings, eating doughnuts and committing real code.
The Interns joined our teams during the 2018-2019 Summer university holidays. We welcomed both old and new faces to this season’s group, though all were impressive in their dedication to their work and the standard of their efforts in their teams’ projects.
“If you are interested in Java and coding in the working world then you couldn’t hope for a better place to go and learn.

Even though I only had four weeks at SOLID I gained a lot of practical knowledge of programming and the working environment that I would not have gained otherwise.” – Heinrich Benz, 2019 Intern

“The SOLIDitech Work Experience Program has been a very beneficial experience for me. I’ve learnt so much at SOLID, and it has been a really good insight into a software developer’s world.
