NCC and Promineo Tech Graduated First Back End Coding Class March 2021
The Back End Coding Boot Camp is designed to accommodate a 9-5 job. It typically requires about 13-18 hours of homework per week, and 1.5 hours of live, online instruction delivered Tuesday evenings. Nabu said the Tuesday evening meeting time worked for his schedule, and he made time for the coursework. “Since I had made a conscious decision for my career transition, I knew I had to invest in learning the tools and technology by finding time to study and focus on the curriculum.”
It didn’t hurt that he already had a foundation in Java and MySQL, he said, “so I did not have to start right from the beginning. However, Spring Boot part of the course required a lot of study and put the skillsets to use. Since I had allocated enough time to study beforehand, I was able to find time to study the materials as well as engage in group study sessions.”
“What you learn is just a fraction of what the Industry really is comprised of, but you don’t have to be an expert in everything that’s out there. Before I joined the Boot Camp, it actually bugged me that I did not know many of the concepts, frameworks and tools for even an entry-level job posting. Almost 18 weeks later, thanks to comprehensive boot camp course plan, I am confident in my abilities to use Java, MySQL, and Spring Boot to build functional applications.”
Promineo President Nick Suwyn said learning Git, Java, SQL, Spring Boot and more in only 18 weeks is no easy task, “It takes a lot of hard work and dedication. Most students spend around 20 hours a week to accomplish this. That’s why it was so great to see how closely this group of students worked together to help each other through the learning process. This group has been the most collaborative cohort we’ve seen to date, and I believe their comradery truly augmented what they were able to learn and accomplish.”
Nabu celebrated graduation in a virtual ceremony on March 10, and landed a position at Minim in Manchester in April as DevOps Intern.
“I am very happy with my confidence and ability to work on a real-world project. My sincere thanks to Kim who worked very hard to bring the boot camp to NCC and such an amazing and supporting team of mentors, instructors, and fellow classmates at Promineo Tech,” he said.
