Week 1 Thoughts

After the first week with Tech Talent South, I was more than glad that I made this decision. The staff members are super friendly and are always trying to help in any way possible.

The instructors are very supportive and knowledgeable. They know how to relay the information in a way everyone can understand, including non-IT people. We have a diversity of IT and non-IT students in the full time program, and everyone seems to be benefiting from it.

At every class, our instructor Ben sets expectations, gives us an assignment, and reviews the assignment from the previous class. I like how he not only explains the topics, but also shows us several examples and gets us involved by having us do a few exercises on our own. He also walks around the classroom and provides assistance to anyone who needs help writing the code for the exercise.

The Community Organizer is always active and trying to get us involved with different Meetup groups to do some networking and get advice from the people who have been in the field for years.

We also had speakers who provided valuable tips on how to be successful and shared their encouraging stories with us. I thought it was very beneficial to hear from those who went through the same path and made it in the industry.

I would highly recommend Tech Talent South to anyone who wants to learn coding.

Now, it’s time to get back to coding ☺ Looking forward to the rest of this BOOTCAMP!!!
