What is Oakfusion Talents Forge?
The idea behind Talents Forge was to provide young programmers with a starting point, from which they can progress to the professional IT world, and at the same time experience an interesting adventure. However, this is not an average programming course, because it faithfully reproduces the realities of a typical IT project. Talents Forge is addressed to both students and graduates of programming studies.
When a young person is just starting his programming adventure and applying for an internship in an IT company, he often hears that he lacks experience. When applying for a programmer position – he also learns that he lacks skills. However, he is not able to get them, because no company is willing to hire him and train him properly.
Oakfusion Talents Forge is our answer to this problem. For several years, our course has met with the unflagging enthusiasm of young students of software design art.
How long does our programming course take?
The quick answer is 6 months. We estimate that it takes about half a year to prepare the programmer for independent operation in the IT world. Some are ready sooner, some later.
What does the recruitment process look like?
The recruitment interview is a loose exchange of views regarding the candidate’s experience. During it, we want to check technical skills and also soft skills.
How many people does the team consist of?
We work in teams of no more than 6 people under the leadership of an architect and product owner – Forge mentor. Practice shows that this is the best number to maintain the right pace of work and proper communication.
Product owners and architects are responsible for increasing the productivity of programmers by sharing knowledge, best practices, and experience as well as project control.
