We finally made it!
At last we succeeded and had the first day of studying. As intended it was Saturday the 2nd of July. Classes started at 10 and lasted till 14, of course we had some breaks.
The first day meant to give students general insight into what our company does as well as what modern IT world looks like. Therefore we tried to give an overview of what the main musts for a successful developer are, not to mention our wish to show what the most important stages of product development are as well as who the main characters in this play are.
The first to take the floor was Artyom Goncharov, the CEO of our company. His presentation gave overview into:
- History of the company
- Company structure
- Our values
- Goals of academy
- The perspective

The last but not the least had the word our PM lady,- Olga Starosotska.
Her presentation was deeply informative and realistic, because she explained basic notions about communication. Which really matters while working in outsourcing and everyday facing difficulties clearing up all the issues with the customer.
Olga’s presentation consisted of several parts, such as:
- Communication as principle
- Communication rules
