Academy is all about practice. Most of what I learned on the course is extremely relevant to commercial projects I work with.

"And this empowered me with understanding that there are no tasks I cannot accomplish. Coming back to Academy as a coach gave me even more experience - as a team lead, project manager and solution architect. Academy completely expanded my professional perspective - and still does."

We use the latest versions of the frameworks, different tools and approaches to test the development patterns which are known as best practices.

"The app we were building this year was sufficiently deployed into cloud environment, and used several different databases and an automated production process. The main value here is that it creates a holistic experience of building a complete application from design to release, and it also enhanced students with soft skills, so often useful on commercial projects - sprint planning, task prioritizing and self-responsibility for the code they deliver."

This is not just a study project - every team builds a real product. We all do this together - we learn, we grow and we teach others.

"The coach makes students go out of their comfort zone - forcing them to switch to areas of development in which they have little experience or have a hard time figuring out. This is not just a study project - every team builds a real product, demonstrates results weekly to product owners, goes through debriefing and maintains responsibility for finding and correcting bugs. Our goal is to help the customer solve his problem, not introduce new ones. We all do this together - we learn, we grow and we teach others."
