The C# Academy works in a partnership with international IT companies such as Login VSI to involve IT students in the real software development. The purpose of the Academy is to provide an opportunity for motivated beginners to strengthen and gain practical knowledge in various technologies.

Academy is becoming an annual event for people who relate their future with IT. It will take a place in the first two weeks of August for beginners who have theoretical – but not yet – practical knowledge of writing code. Around 30 % of academy program is built around social activities: workshops, team buildings, training; other 30% is based on a practical task and the last part is dedicated for technical lessons/ modules/ presentations.

This year we will concentrate on Angular, ASP .NET Core, TypeScript and related tools, technologies. 

Academy’s students are challenged not only to write clean code but also to look for technical solutions that can be practically applied. Attendees are introduced to IT products that are being utilized all around the world.

The Academy’s space is lively, modern and full of great vibes. Our favorite way to stay upbeat in the office is to laugh; we believe that laughing every day makes you live longer, well maybe not longer, but it’s much more fun! You will be learning from pragmatic mentors, who possess experience from various business domains and are willing to share it.
