Bootcamp is a training programme for students that began in September 2016. Initially, it was a free course, where the trainees could be absorbed into the company upon conclusion of the course. Being complete freshers, the students enrolling for these courses were given hands-on training, where they got to work on projects for actual clients. Aside from placing them in our own company, Bootcamp also assists in placing them in other companies and this is where the practical training proves valuable.
As Bootcamp stands on the cusp of turning two, all those who have been a part of its journey so far had a well deserved celebration. The Bootcamp mentors, most of whom are complete movie buffs, were treated to a screening of the movie The Nun at Inox, Porvorim. Excitement levels were high throughout the day in anticipation of what was believed to be the scariest movie of the year.15 of the mentors associated with Bootcamp went for the movie screening, which although marketed as a horror movie, was higher on the laughs than it was on the thrills.
When asked about their experience teaching at Bootcamp, here’s what the mentors had to say:
“I believe that passing on knowledge is an art in itself. Sharing ideas and information with fresh graduates gives us the chance to improve our communication skills and also grow as developers to a fair extent. My experience teaching has been a journey of its own, a fun roller coaster ride that has given me absolute joy in imparting my knowledge to the students.”
– Senior Android Developer
“My experience teaching has been amazing, because it has taught me so much about myself, as well as helped me improve my skills as a developer. I have found so much pleasure and fulfillment in helping students improve their abilities.”
– Technical Project Manager
In its early days, Bootcamp only had WordPress (web development) on its roster of courses. This has grown to include Magento, app development (Android/ iOS), digital marketing, graphic designing, animation, illustration, Ui/Ux designing and hardware coding with several more courses to be soon added. While Bootcamp is currently focusing on freshers and students, in the future they plan on reskilling employees as well as reaching out to various industries.
