Agile Summer Academy 11th - 22nd July 2016 - Software Cornwall

Are you a graduate looking for a career pathway in Cornwall?

Looking to turn your programming skills from a hobby into a career?

Or are you looking for a chance to refresh your skills and get back in to the coding world?

If you’re interested in gaining hands-on experience in a working environment, our Agile Summer Huddle could be a great opportunity for you.

Hosted by Bluefruit Software the Summer Huddle aims to bridge the gap to employment for talented programmers looking for an exciting career in software development.

You’ll be working on a ‘real-world’ simulation of a software project, working alongside industry experts and learning the commercial aspects of coding, as well as the project management side, using Agile processes and methodologies.

I have been learning from home using TDD, which helped a lot on the course and I was able to share my experiences with others. It was also great learning how to use Agile methodologies and why they are so useful, as I know a lot of employers look for that sort of experience.

I had a fantastic time and it was a good opportunity to experience a realistic 8 hour coding day for 2 weeks. Because I’ve only ever done it as a hobby, I really wanted to find out if I’d enjoy doing it all day, every day, as a full time job. I can say so far, I’ve been loving it!”
– Lucy Coding hobbyist; now works as a full-time Software Engineer at Bluefruit Software)
