Vojtěch Pospíšil worked in London before joining the Coding Bootcamp Praha. He found a job already during the last week of his batch and started working as a Backend Web Developer at GIT Consult in Prague in November 2017. Why did he decide to come back home for his studies and how was his bootcamp experience?
What did you do before the bootcamp?
I used to live in London, getting life experience, learning languages, meeting people and working at a job I was not really happy with.
Why did you decide that you want to learn programming?
After some time I got bored trying different jobs and wanted to focus on a real job career. And I saw a future and lot of opportunities in the programming world as well as something I could imagine to do as my future job longterm.
What made you choose the Coding Bootcamp Praha?
I was looking for bootcamps for a while, but most of them were too expensive. When I found out about Coding Bootcamp Praha I was happy because it was an opportunity to come back home and immediately start my career.
How was your experience at the bootcamp - instructors, other students, team projects, hackathons, Demo Day etc?
Bootcamp is great for learning as well as for bringing people together. I felt all the students and instructors got very close together during the bootcamp and everything is just easier in a friendly surrounding. About hackathons, projects, demo days, etc. - I think its really great this is included during the camp! It tests your knowledge, cooperations, etc. and again, brings people together.
What was your favourite part of the Coding Bootcamp Praha experience?
I think my favourite part were the hackatons. It was really fun, it made me feel really competitive, cooperative, excited, and just pushed me to do my best. At the end of a day after reviewing all solutions, all advice and couple of beers I felt happy after a flourishing day.
What do you think about the job support - the HR workshops, the CV/LinkedIn help, meeting the company partners etc?
For a junior beginner programmer it's not easy to find the first job, but with all advice, help and support from the bootcamp it made so much easier and I am really grateful.
How long did it take you to find a job, where do you work now and what is your position?
I was so lucky that I found the job already during the last week of the coding bootcamp as a junior back-end developer at GIT Consult.
What would you advise to anyone who considers signing up for a coding bootcamp?
If you are into coding, it is definitely a good choice. In a short period of time you are able to get so much knowledge and truly fall in love with coding!
