In partnership with Qwasar Silicon Valley, CodeU is bringing industry-leading tech talent programs to Mexico and Latin America with the aim of equipping professionals with the digital skills and competencies necessary to work in an environment increasingly defined by innovation and technology.
Every year, there are thousands of people who spend a lot of time and effort trying to get a software engineering job in North America. Companies such as Apple, Tesla, eBay, Google, or Amazon received thousands of applications for these positions, but only very few are chosen. Tier 1 tech companies are known for (and often inappropriately boast about) their <1% acceptance rates.
Kazakhstan is a beautiful country, bordering Russia, China, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, and the Caspian Sea. While it may not be Silicon Valley, it has arguably out-teched California and succeeded in launching an innovative digital university during the coronavirus lockdown that has been wildly successful.
With the significant unemployment levels in America and the sudden boost to digital transformation with the coronavirus lockdowns, there's a surge in a need to upskill or reskill the workforce.
Feedback in learning and in decision making is important. Delayed feedback makes it difficult for us to evaluate our decisions; instant feedback makes it easier. When it comes to solving a problem or creating a solution, we naturally make decisions and choices. Sometimes, with computer programming, there is a right or wrong answer; for example, if the exercise was to perform a function that returned a count of characters in a string, and your answer isn't the expected output, then it's wrong and you have work to do.
Coding can certainly be fun, but it can also be frustrating, perplexing, and mind bending. The world of memes just wouldn't be the same without those that express so well the feelings of a software engineer and computer programmer :)
Effects of the coronavirus impact on the economy, jobs, and internships have been resounding continually since lockdown measures began across the country and around the world. There are thousands of university and college students and graduates who either cannot find a job or internship, or perhaps worse, suddenly had their internships cancelled or job offers rescinded.
Our Elite Summer Coding Program is unlike other coding programs out there, and we wanted to share some insights on what to expect from the program. In short: it's an elite program and it will be tough! Here are the major items to expect for our summer program.
Great question. There is a fundamental difference between bootcamps and CS degrees, and that's our learning model, thus, the outcomes are different, the learning experience is different, and your role in your own learning is different.
