The day started quite relaxing. I finished to pack my luggage and enjoyed that Sunday.
Of course, we had to go to the Belfast Spring Continental Market. Now I have time and place in my blog entry to talk about this beautiful and impressive food market. The food market had a lot of booths from different nations as Italian, Greek, French with freshly made savoury pastries, Spain with paella, Netherlands, with Dutch pancakes, Germany, with currywurst and bratwurst sausages or ostrich or venison burger from the exotic meats of the World Traders. Besides they also offer handcrafted and bespoke local products. „„Frog.““ weiterlesen

25th of May in 2018:

Work was relaxed today because a colleague allowed me to leave earlier from work because there was just one colleague left in the office. I informed my supervisor by writing an email and left at 1 p.m. At home, I tried it one more time at the post office nearby our accommodation. I was lucky things didn’t turn out worse. I missed the collector for the parcels, but the staff gave me a discount of 10% for my 7 kg large package. That’s why my box will be sent on next Tuesday because Monday is a Bank holiday. „„Remember: Enjoy your life today, because yesterday has gone and tomorrow may never come.““ weiterlesen

Presentation in front of the whole IT team

Day 55 25.05.2018 Friday


On Friday I had to troubleshoot some apple tv’s because the app they use crashed. They couldn’t display any slide shows anymore. The reason for this was that the apple TV’s didn’t had the recent updates. Furthermore we tested the new network with a voice over ip telephone to discover if there were any problems or blind spots.

I also used this day to gather all signatures for my record book, in which I had to document my work because my company needs them to sign me in for my IHK final exam, where I must proof that my record book is complete.

This day was a very special one because my supervisor wanted Jakob and me to present our presentation in front of the whole IT team. „Presentation in front of the whole IT team“ weiterlesen

22nd of May in 2018:

At work, I continued the task, which needs to be finished. In the afternoon Jenny and I tried to send our parcels to Germany. First we decided to use Hermes, but unfortunately, we didn’t have a label from Hermes because we thought it is a Hermes shop, where the labels will be printed out. However, the shop owner apologised, and we had to left the shop. My parcel was quite heavy however we had to walk home again. „„Sports do not build character. They reveal it.““ weiterlesen

Spring Continental Market | Last Training session | How to be the strongest version of myself |

Day 52&53 23.05.2018-24.05 Wednesday&Thursday


On Wednesday I had many questions which were not related to the work experience but
had something to do with networking. The reason was that I want to deploy a home
server for myself. Therefore I asked my department manager a lot of things regarding this topic.
For Example: about Port Forwarding, DMZ, security/hardening the server and my OS which
I am going to use (Linux)

Afterward I had to erase the old configurations and apply the new configurations of the dismantling network device which I brought with me yesterday. Another task which was to create a network sensor to a switch, to monitor if the switch was still functional. The last thing I had to do was to change the access points IP addresses from a branch (which did not work that well ).
In the afternoon I went to Niall again for a workout. Like the previous times we’ve met at 6 p.m. at the Europa hotel rail station. We started our workout with some mobility exercises for the whole body. Afterwards he showed me how to floss the joints to make them more operational for a short period of time. This workout was mainly focussed on the upper body.

department manager, reactivate an account for a third company user for a limited
time and move the network devices which were operating to deploy the new network
design on it.

Unfortunately, we came across a problem because there were some IP conflicts and we had to update the configuration. „Last 10 Days“ weiterlesen
