TESTIMONIALS

Ashley Michal Lewis
Q12016 edition grad
As a self-taught developer, this program gave me the opportunity to test my skills within the context of a professional development workflow under the guidance of an experienced developer. My mentor is supportive and respectful, responds promptly to questions without condescension, while challenging me to think critically about coding decisions. This is the perfect opportunity for a self-motivated, independent learner to transition into a production environment with a company that values their developers and the Ruby community.

Q32016 edition grad
As a recent graduate from college as a Computer Engineer, I was looking for my first real job as a programmer. I was able to use all the skills I developed while at school, and also find new skills that helped me as I entered the working world as a developer. My mentor helped teach me the foundation of Ruby and the culture around developing in Ruby and Rails. I was challenged each day to test my limits, but I was also encouraged to ask questions and try my own solutions to each problem I faced. This opportunity is great for a new developer to learn about Ruby, and could be a stepping stone to joining a company that values its employees.

FAQ

Will Moove-it provide laptops for participants?

No, participants are expected to provide their own personal laptop.

What kind of time commitment should I expect?

Daily standups' attendance is mandatory for all participants, and a minimum of 6 hours a day in the office is expected. However, as long as the apprentice demonstrates sustained progress and steady growth, by excelling in the completion of the deliverables, exceptions will be considered and attendance may be skipped upon prior approval from the coach.

How does the curriculum differ from a bootcamp?

This program does not include formal classroom instruction. Rather it requires self-directed study and research in order to meet the weekly goals.
