The supportive learning environment we cultivate at Makers is fundamental to the success of our developers, and it’s just as effective regardless of whether the cohort community is on slack, on zoom, or onsite.
“Support from the other cohort members was so important, I feel we were all there for each other and that helped a lot.”
Student, Oct ’19
Pairing helps you learn because it gives you a structure to communicate. By practicing how to explain new concepts to one another you’ll accelerate your learning and develop the essential collaboration skills you’ll need in a modern software environment.
“I have always tended to enjoy working alone more, so mandatory pairing was a big shift in learning style for me. But I learnt so much from other cohort members, or by explaining my understanding to other cohort members.”
Makers invests more in its alumni community than any other bootcamp. Not only do our graduates receive post-course support from the Coaching Team both technically and with career and interview preparation, we also pride ourselves in having a thriving and engaged alumni community stretching long into people’s careers, all overseen by our Alumni Community Manager, Tommy.
