I've been working as a Software Engineer / DevOps Engineer for about 3 months now and I just love every day of my work
While the basic curriculum helped me tremendously to understand the components of the Web, programming language fundamentals and how every piece in a technological stack interacts with other pieces, the Capstone experience has definitely taken me beyond the level I've reached upon completing the basic program. Not only my team and I worked and successfully completed a very impressive project, we also learned about the job hunt process, advanced algorithms and data structures, software development methodologies and many, many other things. I learned how real software engineers work as a team, how they communicate while working on a serious project and how to approach technical problem in a collaborative fashion. All in all, it was an amazing learning experience and I'm very happy to say that all this lead me to a great position in a company that I really love!
A few words regarding my current position. I've been working as a Software Engineer / DevOps Engineer for about 3 months now and I just love every day of my work. I couldn't even imagine that my Launch School experience will translate so rapidly into this kind of position (which is not a junior role). I already made several significant contributions to the company's codebase and as our team grows, we plan to hire more and more engineers. Without a doubt, I would hire Launch School graduates as I know I can trust the curriculum and learning from first principles.
