Why did you choose C as your preferred programming language to work with? I have a genuine interest in automobiles which I have been trying to develop as my hobby. When I went into details, I discovered that knowledge of C was one of the requirements for me to be able to work with electronics and to manipulate motherboards. In addition, I am keen on new challenges, and, trust me, learning C is a big one.
How would you rate Strypes Lab among other opportunities that you have considered for learning and development? I really enjoyed the complexity of the program, which suited me as a person entering with basic knowledge in C. The course covers topics that you would rarely find in mass online courses or classes for beginners. In addition, academies like Strypes Lab stand out with the opportunity for live communication and interaction, real practice, and feedback, and establishing friendships with like-minded talents. Last, but not least, I admire the lecturer who was leading the academy in C and who gave us valuable knowledge and insights in programming.
And how about the way Strypes Lab was organized and conducted? All the classes were held after working hours, twice a week, which is quite convenient for students and working people. In addition, candidates can join from a remote location which is a great advantage and an opportunity for someone living in a small town or a village in a remote area. Of course, Strypes Lab is free for all participants which takes down any barriers for participation.
Does your role at Strypes match the expectations you had when you were part of Strypes Lab? This is my first job in the industry, so I had very few expectations back then. However, every single day at Strypes proves to me that I made the right choice and found a great place to stay and develop my career. Here you get the feeling of belonging to the team as soon as you meet your colleagues and start working together. I forgot to mention that after finishing Strypes Lab I continued my career at Strypes working remotely from a lovely house outside the big city which is another great advantage of being here.
What would you advise candidates who consider joining Strypes Lab? Even if you are not sure that you want to grow your career in programming with a particular language or technology, I would encourage you to take this step and join the academy. Strypes Lab offers lifetime worth of knowledge which you can use in many different roles at different companies. What you only need is to keep practicing and upskilling all the time. Personally, I would support all my friends interested in software development to apply for the next editions.
