Looking for an Internship in the USA

As a 5th year student at EPITA, I am looking for a 6 months internship to finish my studies.

During my first three years at school, I worked for an IT consulting company and have made several technical internships which increased my technical skills. Then, during the last two years, I specialized in project management and technology and business issues management. I acquired knowledge in that discipline such as how to manage a team, monitor and organize a system development lifecycle or manage milestones.

I am looking for an Internship (in the US) from February/March to improve my know-how.

Keres project – Manage and secure your people-lifting booms and platforms

During the 3rd year at EPITA, students are able to do a personal project (during 4 month) that can replace some school projects.

So, benjamin, simon and I decided to find and create a solution to manage and secure construction trucks after Access Industries company talked to us about their problem. Actualy, all kind of people-lifting booms and platforms have the same key, so, it’s easier to change it if it is lost. But, it is completly unsecure and it appears that access that their trucks are used during the night or the week end by other companies.

So, we proposed them one solution, not very expensive and easy to use.

Our solution consists of using RFID cards and GPRS connexion to secure the trucks.

Here is how it works :

  • When you want to use a truck, just the card come near the RFID device.Boitier Keres
  • our device contact our server and check if:
    • this card is allowed to switch on this truck
    • this truck can by switch on at this time and date (for example, a company can decide to make this truck only accessible from monday to wednesday between 8am to 4pm)
  • The server responds to our device which switch on or not the truck.

Technologies used

  • RFID receptor
  • Wifi to simulate GPRS for this first step of the project
  • C# webservices
  • asp.Net for the web interface (see video demo) and Ajax
  • C# stand-alone application to manage the RFID device

Descente dans les profondeur de l’arrière pays niçois

Ce we, nous sommes allé faire une petite via-souterrata dans l’arrière pays niçois.
Après 1h15 de route, nous arrivons au pied des pistes de ski de Gréolières dans le parc naturel de la moulière. Nous sommes pris en charge, on nous habille des pieds à la tête (combinaison, gants, casque et lampe frontale, baudrier et mousquetons), une petite formation de 10 minutes sur l’utilisation des mousquetons et l’assurance et nous sommes en route pour l’entrée de la grotte.
Dix bonnes minutes de marches en montagne sous les combinaisons et des litres d’eau de perdus plus tard, l’entrée de la grotte se dessine.
Un petit aperçu de la grotte, une descente de bien 20 mètres dans un petit trou, au fond, du noir et encore du noir, du silence, 10 degrés (mais on à quand même bien chaud avec les efforts fournis), et que du bonheur :)
Je vous laisse admirer les photos.

Olibrius now has his winmo application

A few weeks ago, I talked you about Silvermoon which is a graphic library writter by Tom69.

I decided to play a little bit with it and after several tests, I started to make a real full application. So, this is it, an application to manage my association Olibrius directly on my phone. Well,  actually, all it does is to show me all comic books we have, there mark and place, classified by collections.  It also permits me to access to the member list and their status and mail.

OlibriusAppv1-1 OlibriusAppv1-2 OlibriusAppv1-3OlibriusAppv1-4 OlibriusAppv1-5

For the moment, it only supports European comic books, since we didn’t entered us comic books and books in the database. Us comic books interface will probably be the same but for books, since we can’t classify them by collection, I don’t know yet how I’m going to display them (maybe a search box or something like that).

So, how does it works ? Actually, nothing very special, just made some webservices in php (I know, webservices in php are so dirty, but, didn’t have the choice), put them on the same server where Olibrius website and database are, and call them from my C# application. So simple but a little bit slow when I don’t have 3G access…

See you with my next application…
