While the eventual output of Industry 4.0 will be images that will be able to be understood universally, I would imagine that it would help to be able to speak German. Do you speak German?

No German required - for your professional life in larger companies when your are mostly interacting with other engineers. But it feels a bit lonely not to at least understand it.

That's good to know--and I would think you're right, especially for after work hours--language is even more important!

Don't worry about language - many many people here speak English. I mean, I'm pushing 50 and I'm from the GDR (former Eastern Germany) where we mainly learned Russian, but still I'm reading everything in English now ... many hundereds of pages every week. And all the people I know speak English more or less. Shouldn't be a concern. I would even guess that you would find people who would like to practice their English with a native speaker ...


There seems to be a strange thread of discussion about cyclists going on ... Generally cyclists are well supported in most areas of Germany. The "stole" half the width of the walkways from the pedestrians and provided well paved stripes for the cyclists. So it's nice to cycle here. Of course you should watch to keep your speed down in order to be save. Driving above 20mph may get you into trouble sometimes ;-). But it's not as if we're killing off our cyclists all the time :-) :-).

I agree, future is in hugely complex software systems (not the next version of Word ;-)...how about Africa 6.0? there must be plenty of smart people on such a large continent and the cost of setting up a software design center should beat that of Romanian village ;-)...Kris

And how much Euro will they pay as compare to USA? But we need to revise VISA every six months and must return after every two years!

Check out amazon.de to compare prices :) Should be fine.

There is no need for a VISA for US citizens from what I understood, you just need a letter from your employer stating that he tried to hire someone local but failed miserably - a non-issue for electrical engineers where availability and specialisation do not coincide too often.

Good luck!

And *do not* drive over our cyclists when leaving the road or turning right!

Is that a huge problem there? Driving over your cyclists?

[cyclists] They are everywhere, and one needs to be careful, but I just meant to make some fun about that official reference about tavel in Germany. That stresses the cyclists so much that I thought to overdo it even a bit more as a post-scriptum. In the larger cities you should not need a car in the first place. You have decent public transport (with no negative conotation, as in e.g. NYC) or ... you cycle :o)

Actaully, I've had this type of experience, but it was in Amsterdam, at dusk, in the rain, while I was trying to find my hotel. And, bikes kept darting into the street from everywhere!

The Future in Software

Before "Move to Germany", you have to come in Romania for learning 5.0! (No Romanian language required).

Read the following:

The next big thing or The Future in software dilemma:

1. The perpetual trend from today to tomorrow or

2. A fundamental invention into a radical change in our kind of thinking!

Two facts:

   1. The first Personal Computer was built in a garage in United States.

   2. The Future in Software is writing in a village from Romania.

             I have worked for many years to a fundamental invention in software, on a revolutionary informational model.

      The current software model (based on DataCenter, Cloud, Big Data, Internet of Things, IPv6, Anything as a Service (XaaS), etc) is becoming more and more complicated, waste of time and money and a danger for human society.

       From a year to the other the number of IT specialists will be bigger and bigger. They must solve the complications from the software model rather than the complexity of the informational real world.

My project is about:

The Universal Software Model

without Relational Model and without Data Centers.

The current software model (90%) will go to museums. The new model is built 50%. I'm serious. I've worked in software for 40 years. You cannot imagine what will be "The internet of Things". Now it is a big waste of money and time. All is very very serious!

Where exactly is not answered easily.

In general the center of gravity for "high tech jobs" is in the south. Think of Baden-Wuerttemberg (Stuttgart) and Bavaria (Munich).

But - as with any general rule - there are a lot of exemptions: Duesseldorf, Hannover, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Nuremberg, ...

These are the centers - while most of the companies' development sites reside slighly off these centers.

[where]  agreed, it may be of particular interest, though, to be with one of the many small and medium enterprises of 40-250 employees that basically can be anywhere in some smallish town with some nieche product for the world market / a) you get a bit of a new family feeling  (if everything goes right and if you are lucky)  b) you are also wanted for the contacts you bring c) the documentation writers want you to proof-read bits and pieces ...  but if the job is not as you hope, you are likely to move homes (within Germany) to find another position.

LATEST ARCHIVED BROADCAST

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
