Curious minds are always keen on finding how things are built. Have you ever wondered what and, most importantly, who stands behind web applications? Vue.js developers are usually the ones to build user-friendly web interfaces, they optimize the application for performance and solve architectural challenges for a large-scale application involving a high-level of customer configurability.
Having this idea in mind, we organized Vue.js Academy. This program was not about simply sharing information, we strived to inspire our participants to continue working in this direction & sharpen their skills even after the end of our collaboration. Did our mentors manage to achieve this objective? From results, we see that they without a shadow of a doubt did it.
From passion to a good career choice: Vue.js Academy at Pentalog Chisinau
Vue.js Academy included 16 lessons that well combined theoretical presentations with actual practical tasks. During our sessions, it was important for us to pay attention to how the information is assimilated by those who take part in the course. If they encountered difficulties while completing a task, we would dedicate more time to it.
Train hard! Get results! Repeat!
At the beginning of the course, Pentalog mentors wanted to lay technical foundations that later would serve as a catalyst to a deeper understanding of Vue.js principles. The Academy took place thanks to our 6 mentors, most of them being IT specialists with extensive knowledge of Vue.js and one Agile coach from Pentalog Agency in Romania.
Mentors leveled up the knowledge that our guys and girls already had, and only then got to the actual Vue.js training. It covered the following essential topics that can help Vue.js developers create high-quality products:
“Consistent and challenging assignments and support from mentors is probably the most effective and valuable way to learn. I learned a lot about the correct layout and CSS techniques such as Grid and Flexbox.” Eduard, trainee
After each meeting with the Academy’s mentors, students were proposed exercises to practice by themselves that had to be submitted for verification. As soon as exercises were analyzed, each completed item got personalized & targeted feedback. Making sure our students understood not just the mistake itself, but also what led to it.
Is it possible to enjoy a Vue.js training? If it is organized by Pentalog, then yes!
The next step was the final exam. 3 hours were dedicated to the development of a product. I am still amazed by everyone’s dedication and good performance. Pentalog trainers managed to catch participants’ attention in such way that we had a full presence 95% of the time. Considering their achievements in a short period of time, a couple of them soon can get a chance to become our colleagues.
As our goal is always to get better, Vue.js Academy organizers asked for the feedback from our participants. Most of them agreed on certain aspects of the course they all had considered valuable:
Learning modern promising technology
New relevant information
Trainers’ approach and attitude
We enjoyed this training as much as our participants did. Therefore, the next time we will make it even better. Lesson learned: in a short period of time you can upgrade your skills, don’t be afraid to try it.
