Having good developer skills is fantastic, but will it make you stand out in the crowd or fully prepare you to shine bright in the professional world where there’s more that meets the developer’s eye?
4 groups of 3 students will get the chance to upgrade their skills during this summer school and get an all-around knowledge to confidently prepare you for future challenges.
