What Residents are saying

"I really appreciated mentors’ help. They exposed us to our blind spots. This kind of knowledge comes only from the people with a certain level of expertise. Contrary to what you may think, the bootcamp is a sphere where you listen, share and improve. It helped us bond as a team. We ended up understanding ourselves better."

Tina Bychkova, Head of Digital Marketing at Synctuition


Participants' opinion

"The second bootcamp was one of the most eye opening, informative and at the same time entertaining experiences I had as a game development professional. Truly showcased that direct communication with users is just as important as focusing on big data."
