This week I went to Founders & Coders coding boot camp that happened at “The Cube” in Greece. Two of their developers decided to come to Greece for the boot camp, and that was really nice of them because I don’t see a lot of such boot camps existing in Greece. What I would really love to see in Greece is an algorithms and data structure coding boot camp 🙂 I am learning that right now and I will be blogging my experience or solutions as I do so in the next weeks.
It was a super busy week. Coding in the morning, coding in the afternoon, coding in the evening, coding at night, and coding at midnight, actually coding almost all day with the exception on when I was writing a blog post I’ll talk of another time. I was able to balance this with my official last days of my internship which I will talk of in another post.
So Founders & Coders is a 3 month boot camp with the aim to equip you to become a software developer. I don’t have much experience on which level can an absolute beginner get to after such boot camp but that is something for those interested in it to figure out. The one that happened in Greece lasted one week, so I believe it was probably a small portion of the actual full curriculum. Founders & Coders is located in London, UK and is FREE to attend if you get selected for a 3 month batch. You just have to make sure you have your own accommodation and things needed to live in London if you get accepted, and that you follow the steps given in the application process before applying. You can check it on their webpage yourself.
I know some basic programming(at least), but I try to brush up my skills from ground 0 several times till I am sure I understand the basics well, I wanted to meet other people interested in programming, and I really wanted to learn how to use APIs plus anything else I could. So that’s why I decided to attend, also because I wanted to spend my summer honing my coding skills some more. The classes were from 10AM – 4PM with one generous break. Let me mention in the past 2-3 months I have also gone to 3 company visits. Nokia, eWorx and ZuluTrade but I haven’t blogged about that. I saw Nokia data centers in Greece and it was so beautiful! I really like the climate of a data center, it looked fascinating.
