What role did IT Step Academy play in your life?
Studying at the Academy determined my choice of profession. In the process of studying I was very enthusiastic and realized that I want to be a programmer.
What can you advise students who are currently studying at IT Step Academy?
Programming is not just a profession, it is a lifestyle. Learning requires quite a lot of time investment in self-education and practice. Learning should not be limited to attending classes and should include independent research and practice.
Do not forget about the social aspect, because now projects are created not by individuals, but by teams, so communication and teamwork skills are very important now. Also, you should not ignore it in the process of your professional development.
It is quite a hard work, but on the other hand, it can bring you a lot of pleasure and joy from everyday work, and this is quite a valuable bonus and is not found in every profession.
