We are pleased to announce that the registration for our second free coding bootcamp in Istanbul is now open! Be one of the selected 25 students and become a Software Developer in 4 months!
Why should you take part in this course?

The world we live in today is digital – it’s all about computers, smartphones, apps, games and social media. That means that if you’re not digitally literate then there’s a good chance you’re missing out on opportunities for career progression.

The registration for the second bootcamp is open until 25 February 2022 and it will start on the 7th of March. We want to offer this opportunity for future software developers who want to learn how to code in a supportive environment with other like-minded people.

To apply for the bootcamp you must be 20 years old or older and have an adequate laptop. You must also have the time commitment for four months. The courses will be taught in English so having an intermediate level of English is also a must. You don’t need any previous coding experience to take part in this bootcamp. All you need is an interest in software development and a willingness to learn!

Data Science or Software Development?

It’s an obvious fact that the technology industry has greatly expanded, and many specialties boast career paths that are in high demand. Two of the most popular tech career paths are data science and software engineering —both of which come with their own set of unique attributes.

Do you have a building or discovering mindset?

Both Data science and software development have similar skill sets, but they are different in the way they approach the problem. Data scientists use their skills to analyze data, while software developers use their skills to create interactive features for a product.

90% of data in the world was created in the past two years. 

According to Forbes, 90% of data in the world was generated over the last 2 years with 2.5 quintillion bytes of data being created each day.

Data Scientist is more focused on defining a Problem Statement, Querying Data, performing Exploratory Data Analysis, developing Models, and Interpreting Results. 

Data Scientist works on structured and unstructured Big Data and combines data with Mathematics and Science to derive conclusions from the data. Their usual job is to get the data from a Data Engineer, identify the features and labels, model them by algorithm, test, train and then interpret or forecast the results.

Data science graduates have job titles of Data Analyst, Business Analyst, Data Scientist, Big Data Engineer.

Software development is a more hands-on job with a lot of coding involved. It also requires a lot of creativity and imagination to come up with new ideas for products that would be used by customers. There are various types of software development and each requires a different skill set and mindset.

Software development graduates have job titles of SoftwareEngineer, Computer Programmer, Web Application Developer, Web Developer, Software Developer.

Careers in Data Science and software engineering are rapidly growing and are coming more in demand day by day. Whether you decide to take a career path in Data Science or Software Development, you will be on the right track and you will be having a future-proof career!

Here’s why SHE must learn to code.

Coding is the language of the future. A language that all genders should equally learn and practice.

Women should have equal shots as men

With the ongoing digital transformation all over the world, coding is one of the most in-demand and paying jobs. According to Microsoft, the global number of digital jobs is set to grow from 51 million this year to 190 million in 2025. This means millions of job opportunities in which women should have equal shots.

According to a global software developer survey in 2021, most developers are males, accounting for 91.7 percent of all respondents. Female developers amounted to only five percent of all respondents, demonstrating the male-dominating reality of software development jobs.

With women being present in the tech industry, the pay gap will be reduced, and the average woman’s pay will significantly increase, which means more women empowerment.

Software development fits into everyone’s schedule

One of the advantages of Software Development careers is that they present great flexibility.

Whether you are working for a company or yourself, there are a lot of arrangements you can do to handle both your job and your personal life. Also, a lot of Software Developers nowadays, take more than one project at a time and build a daily schedule that suits their life.

You may not see the creative part, but it’s there.

Most of you believe that coding mainly requires analytical, logical, and mathematical skills, but that’s not only it. Coding is also about creativity, passion, and problem-solving.

Women tend to see certain things differently than men do and think differently. The digital world must have these thoughts and visions in it too.

With coding, all your thoughts and ideas could be transformed into something you and others see on screens. You will get the chance to influence others and enhance their digital experience.

Your creativity and problem-solving skills will allow you to put different pieces of technology together to form a large and complex whole.
