I recently done an interview with switchup talking about the challenges and motivation of starting our bootcamp in London.
There were quite a few interesting and thought provoking questions and it was a really good experience! Here is a sneak preview!
Hi, Alex! What motivated you to start a bootcamp?
The main motivation was to share knowledge and empower people to start coding. Coding is such a relevant skill to have today. Another key driver was to make coding accessible and teach it in plain English.
Someone graduating with a humanities or even a hard science degree may find it difficult to land a job in their field in the current climate and at the same time will be faced with an abundance of well-paid tech jobs in the market. This is where a bootcamp is ideally placed to offer that head start into the tech space.
What challenges have you faced so far with starting your coding bootcamp?
Keeping up with demand and adding more courses. We have grown very quickly in a short space of time, so striking a balance between expanding our course offering, whilst ensuring that quality of content and delivery remains high is our key priority. However we are aiming to add two new courses on web design and mobile app development later this year, so stay tuned!
