Every year, all of the 96 Local BEST Groups within their University organize International Seminars aiming for education, meeting other cultures and empowering diversity. International seminars last 9 ‒ 10 days and they cover lectures, meeting host town and evening friendships, which is carrying out cultural exchange and cultural practice. The topic for this year’s seminar, which is the 13th in the row organized by Local BEST Group Belgrade, are the basics of the WordPress system and advanced using of PHP programming language. The reasons behind choosing them as the topic for this seminar are their popularity and widespread presence, but also a desire for bringing their significance in web development closer to participants as they are becoming more sought skills in the world of information, and above that Internet technologies. Most of the Universities in the Europe recognize BEST seminars as significant extracurricular activity, rewarding participants with additional ESPB credits. Verification of seminar attendance is given by the University of the city in which the seminar is held. Course attendance is completely free, as the food, lodging and all extracurricular activities that are covered by the program are covered. Over the year there are over 7000 students that visit University centres around the Europe and thereby contribute to the development of their own education.
The goal of this year’s International Seminar is to achieve a successful cooperation with the companies in the field of web development, improve knowledge of students in this scope and merge different cultures in one. Accomplishing this goal is a big challenge for me, but I will be able to win thanks to my great team!
