The course will be spread over 8 weekly meetings, we will go from learning the fundamentals to having your very own backend application deployed with Docker.
Maria Ovsyannikova, co-organizer: I am one of the graduates from the first edition. After finishing the course I got a 6-month internship position. I currently work as a full-time Junior Full-stack Software Engineer. By co-organizing this event I’m giving back to the community and want to open the same possibilities as I had to others.
The course will be instructed by a team of developers, headed by Armağan Amcalar, Head of Software Engineering at Unu GmbH (https://unumotors.com), and will be hosted at Eurostaff, in Mitte on Wednesdays.
The course is designed around open-source technologies, so a Unix-like system, Linux or MacOS is preferred. Git and Visual Studio Code will be our main tools, along with Node.js. Windows is not preferred, but if you absolutely have to live on Windows, you should have a working git and Node.js installation, and the rest will work.
