INDUSTRY GUEST SPEAKER: SIR CLINT C.
Batch Instructor Alfred invited a friend of his, Sir Clint, an IT graduate from PUP, to give the bootcampers a sneak peak of what it is like to be in the industry.
Some of the key takeaways from Sir Clint’s journey as a Web Developer are as follows.
About creativity: “Innovation is your key to success. Everyone is really encouraged to think outside the box.”
About collaboration: “I was never really afraid to speak up and so I always ask questions whenever I don’t understand something. I am never hesitant to throw in inquiries and also formulate my own idea and share it with the team.”
About career growth: “I also realized in my journey as a web developer that you can’t always get things right at the first time most especially in designing softwares because softwares is ever-evolving. The design, the architecture, the code are really dynamic and it really changes its phases based on the current markets that we need.”
About direction and change: “I think Software development is not about perfection, it’s about direction. You need to take it a little step at a time. Gather feedback and reflect on that information, then change the directions as needed. If stuck between two or more options, choose the option that will make change easier in the future. That is actually a line from Dave Thomas.”
About Failure: “Failure is an opportunity to learn. Failing early means learning early. Fail fast, learn fast.”

Of course, it’s time for their instructor to share who among them were exceptional.

Congratulations to the top performers of this batch!
Last days are always hard. To end the celebration, as a gift, the class prepared a quick presentation for their Batch Instructor, Sir Redd, to show him their appreciation and gratitude.
