Academy Week 12: Looking Back

It’s been 12 weeks since our September 2020 cohort joined the Academy. Before they start their new lives as Software Engineers next week, they took some time to reflect on what drove them to apply in the first place and what they’ve gained from the experience.

Getting to know the September 2020 Academy cohort

At the beginning of September, a new cohort of 12 Academy Engineers joined our team! This month, we spoke with them about their backgrounds and the experiences they have had during their first week in the programme.

The world beyond the Academy ?

Several engineers, including myself, joined Made Tech via the Academy. It’s a 12-week programme that the company offers to teach passionate learners the best software engineering practices in the industry.

Academy Week One: Mind Blown

It’s the end of our first week in the latest Made Tech Academy cohort. My mind has been truly blown.
