The second group of Java training and our news

    In April, the first educational course for Java programmers started on the educational platform, the training on which will last five months. Classes take their course in the online format, the training of programmers takes place in groups through webinars and homework. Projects are as close as possible to real conditions: actual tasks are solved, a bias is made on practical skills. The course teacher - a professional developer and experienced teacher Vitaly Chibrikov - this combination is not often found, especially since it is valuable. We consider it very important that in the process of training a student gets the opportunity to work with a professional in his field.

    Now we pay special attention to the quality control of training, conduct surveys and develop an assessment methodology, simultaneously solving the technical nuances of the process. It is very important for us to build the most flexible and effective method of training and graduate specialists of excellent middle level. However, we have already stated this before.

    We are not in vain declaring that studying with us is interesting, but not easy. In the first month, a small percentage of students left us. The dropout rate of students is inevitable and is a kind of quality indicator - a successful program cannot get an equal number of students at the entrance and exit, this fact will speak about the rating of training in such a program. In most cases, students decided to graduate due to the lack of sufficient time for training. Those who have decided to go further in the polls note the relevance of the material, its novelty and practical benefit, as well as the responsiveness of the teacher. And for us these are very important assessments.

    What's new?

    At this stage, there is a set for the second Java thread, the start of which is scheduled for June 3. Despite the fact that before the start of classes there are still two weeks left, the recruitment of the group is in full swing - we have once again made sure that we are on the right track. The geography of the project turns out to be very extensive and interesting: Moscow, San Jose, Kazan, Kiev, Nizhny Novgorod, Stockholm, Vologda, Simferopol, Chelyabinsk, Tallinn, Cheboksary, Krasnodar, St. Petersburg, Saratov, Cherepovets, Ufa, Vladivostok, Orenburg, Kolomna and these are not all the points that are already marked on our map. Also, those who did not manage to enroll in the first set join the second group, which we are undoubtedly glad. The number of first-year places had to be limited, as there were significantly more applicants than could be enrolled in the group without reducing the quality of training.

    We have planned two Open Doors Days - May 27 and June 1, where we will be happy to answer all your questions and, based on the experience of the first set, we will play places in the group and discuss the conditions of study. Want to attend the Open Day? You are welcome here .

    A group was created in Slack, where everyone (not only students - any user who successfully passed the test) can get access to the professional community. The group discusses Java cases, reviews the code, shares useful materials, discusses various options for solving problems and simply shares experiences and communicates on professional topics.

    What's up?

    The five best students who graduated from the course will be invited for interviews at top IT companies. At the time of the start of the project, among them were Luxoft, ABBYY, IBS, CROC and EPAM, for the first month of work, our partners also became HH, the Laboratory of Cloud Technologies. And the list of famous companies continues to grow.

    Another news - in the near future, a new Python course is being prepared for launch, the selection of candidates for a teacher’s position and the approval of the course program have been completed. The teacher will be Stanislav Stupnikov, an advertising system programmer at Mail.Ru, in his professional piggy bank 6 years of industrial development experience, including the creation and maintenance of web applications, infrastructure solutions, highly loaded systems, data pipelines and analytical systems. 3 years of scientific development for large government customers with contracts for the analysis of large volumes of data.
