EAT++ – We invite you to dinner
“All the great minds of our time have one thing in common: They have to eat something now and then.”
think-cell takes this need very seriously, which is why it came up with the EAT++ initiative. We regularly invite computer science students to talk over a meal in a relaxed atmosphere.
Who is think-cell?
think-cell was founded in 2002 by two computer scientists who continue to run the company. We produce graphics software that performs most of the painstaking work of creating data-driven charts for our demanding users.
Find out more about our company and our working environment on the career overview page. If you are looking for more information on what development problems we are facing every day go to our C++ Developer job posting.
Why we decided to do this?
We are constantly on the lookout for new software developers. We are very interested in young talent and will be happy to stay in touch with you over the longer term. Even if you have no specific plans for your professional future, we would still like to get to know you. And we think we can do that best over a nice, relaxed meal.
EAT++ Lecture on December 13, 2013 at Technische Universität Kaiserslautern
On December 13, 2013 we will pay a visit to Technische Universität Kaiserslautern. In his lecture “Layout without LaTeX: Intuitive and Interactive” Dr. Sebastian Theophil, Senior Software Engineer at think-cell, will present research findings on the topic of automated slide layout. The lecture will take place at 11:00 a.m. at the German Research Center for Artificial Intelligence (DFKI) in Kaiserslautern, Trippstadter Straße 122, lecture hall Zuse 1 as part of the lecture Intelligent User Interfaces Design and Implementation by Dr. Daniel Sonntag. After the lecture think-cell will invite all participants to help themselves to a delicious lunch from our buffet just outside the lecture hall. All students, academic staff, alumni and professors of computer science as well as the entire DFKI are most welcome to join us for lecture and dinner, or simply for either one of the two. We are looking forward to meeting you!
EAT++ Lecture on January 23, 2014 at RWTH Aachen
We are thrilled to announce that on January 23, 2014 we will revisit RWTH Aachen for an EAT++ event.

Practical Course on Modern C++ Programming at Technische Universität Darmstadt, February 17-21, 2014
Starting February 17, 2014, think-cell co-founder and Technical Director Dr. Arno Schödl will host a week-long practical course on Modern C++ Programming at one of Germany’s top computer science faculties: TU Darmstadt. All students of computer science currently enrolled at TU Darmstadt are welcome to sign up (by February 14, 2014) and participate. The practical course will cover the fundamental concepts and features of C++, as well as the standard library. It will also teach best practice solutions for problems arising in C++ software development. Regular attendance and a programming project are required to gain 3 credit points. More in-depth information about this practical course (course number 20-00-0746-pr) can be found here.
After the final lecture on February 21, 2014, think-cell will invite all participants to dinner in a nearby restaurant.
