Coding Academy: Not just about Code.
It takes more than good techie skills to get hired in today’s company’s. Naos Wilbrink, CEO of aFrogLeap , a mobile website company based in Amsterdam says, “We are a local business always looking for qualified people, which is more than having the technical skills, they also need to be able to work in an international environment. This means they need to be able to work collaboratively, think in critically, and have a high level of problem solving and creativity, and be able to communicate effectively. These people are harder and harder to find.” Our Coding Academy focuses on both: giving students the technical skills as well as giving them practice and competencies in the other skills needed to land good jobs. We are busy getting ready for our next round of pilot sessions as we partner together with Atlassian Software and Eigenwijks. Interested in joining our team of volunteers?
