Software Children's book Digi... what? COMPANY Alea
Alea complete

Hello, my name is Alea and I like to ask questions about the world.

In the new optiMEAS children's book Digi... what? you can learn with me and my daddy what digitalization means.

We talk about the numerical language 'machinic', invisible nets, sweating excavators and cunning cabinet clouds, but also about nature, compassion and dealing with technology.

Available free of charge from us or as eBook in the Apple Store or in the Google Playstore.

The publication of a Kindle version on Amazon has been made in February 2021. Unfortunately, we cannot offer the Kindle version for free. The minimum price for an eBook on Amazon is $3 (USD).

However, we will donate all the proceeds to a children's project.

Digi... what?

Burkhard Schranz had the idea for the children's book when he wanted to explain to his daughter, who is enthusiastic about reading aloud, what he does at work. From the pen of Mama Solveig Kerber, a children's story with application examples from the optiMEAS Everyday life. The bright and curious Alea was born, lovingly illustrated by Florence Baumeister.

Digitisation generally offers a technical potential that is increasingly being used in many areas of life and work. We therefore believe that it is beneficial for children to be introduced to the topic. "Digi... what?" gives a small insight into the field of application of optiMEAS as a solution partner for industrial digitization. But with this book we also want to show that it is important to handle technology, that playing in nature is an important balance and that a responsible decision is based on human empathy. Even if the given framework can only be an approximation of some aspects.

A second volume with Alea on "Business with Heart - Heart Business" will follow soon. Here we would like to tell you about the way we deal with each other and which values are important to us. In addition, we will also talk about individual interests and abilities in this context.

We are happy to receive mail from children about their heart and career aspirations.
