Developing tech skills & confidence
July 1st, 2016
“The guys from Eleven Fifty were cool,” Andrew said. “When you had an issue or an error, they would look over it with you at the same time, explaining what had gone wrong. I feel like this program will greatly increase my overall chances of getting a job in the tech industry.”
“Eleven Fifty taught me how to believe in myself,” Nigel added. “When times got hard, they taught me to believe in myself and just take a deep breath because I could do it.”
“Being able to say ‘hey listen I have to keep going because this will pay of’ is the kind of attitude that the Eleven Fifty team instilled in me now and forever,” reflected Abobakr. “This experience will have a forever impact on my life and only make me a better computer scientist and a better entrepreneur.”
“Not many high schoolers can say they know how to code or that they’ve taken an Eleven Fifty class for free,” shared Dionne. “Never in a million years would I have thought I would be a coder, and here I am now doing just that. I’m happy Nextech came into my life at the perfect time.”
