A new adventure : Stuttgart !

by Grungi

So, that’s it, I’m now in Stuttgart for a 3-months internship in the University of Stuttgart. And, I must say as I’m typing from my very cool apartment, so far so good.

The trip (by train) was really cool, got a bit of time to kill in Cologne between my two trains, and I was awed by the spectacle of the that huge cathedral right outside the station.

Honetly, it’s like, huge.

And stepping outside confirmed what I thought : that building is really impressive. And against the grey sky, it looked quite intimidating…

You can almost hear a deep choir singing foreboding melodies, right ?

The rest of the trip was peaceful, and before I knew it, I was on the campus. There, I met Florian Hindenlang, the guy who I’m going to work with during those next three months. The rest of the day consisted of a quick tour of the lab, with “nice to meet you”s sprinkled here and there. Then some work, and finally a German supper to close the day.

And here I am, typing on my laptop, in a room much nicer than I thought I would end up in, with a ΓΌber fast internet connection ! Life can be good, sometimes πŸ˜€

So, there you go, a little picspam of my apartment. I didn’t take many pictures, but don’t worry, you’ll get a glimpse of the campus and the rest over the course of the next few weeks.

That’s the kitchen, with a fridge and everything. And my half-unpacked stuff.

The bedroom. Did I mention it’s huge ? And the desk is really big too. Reaaaaal nice.

Beds !

And lots of storage space. Won’t need it, but it’s still pretty cool.

I can haz shower !
So there, a little tour of my first day in Germany. It’s all good, and there are already talks of something I really find interesting : a coding marathon, where we would take a full week in a hotel and simply dive and code something from scratch. The sprint coding amateur in me rejoices!
Till next time…
