“After a successful five years, Makers Academy continue to offer courses to students from all over the world. CEO Evgeny Shadchnev explained: ‘To be a software developer, you not only need the technical skills, you need communication, collaboration, emotional intelligence and should be able to work well with others.”

“Courses such as Makers Academy focus on practical, hands-on coding experience and are able to stay up-to-date with industry changes by updating the course curriculum every six weeks in line with feedback from the companies that hire Makers Academy graduates.”

“This is where the boot camp environment at Makers Academy really comes into its own and why it is often worth investing in such a course for those serious about becoming a developer. There is no greater incentive than seeing those around you working hard, absorbed in what they are doing. When you get stuck, you don’t have to suffer in silence.”
