I have been able to improve my programming skills as well as learning more about networking and the realities of the technology industry
It was very inspiration and educational. It was great to see how people from similar backgrounds had attained such roles so showed me it is possible to reach such heights.
It was very friendly and even when speaking to the senior members, everyone was really helpful.
I enjoyed it quite a lot, especially the programming tasks and the reviews that we made since it developed my programming and planning skills.
