Students are set up to fail

Students are set up to fail

The growing popularity of coding has led to an increase in coding schools and online boot camps. The schools are designed to produce students who have a working knowledge of software development and are ideally hireable.

But this crash-course approach doesn't necessarily equip aspiring developers with the skills or experience they need. Universities and software certificate programs also don't teach the skills employers value and expect.

The disconnect between study and the workplace

Students are mostly just taught the fundamentals, but they lack the hands-on experience that connects to marketplace needs.

Learning to code is just the start. Only 40 % of software development is writing code. The field is far more varied and rewarding. Programming languages are also a source of contention. 'Hot' languages aren't always used in everyday development. Languages like Python is not that easy to write cleanly, and bad habits are difficult to change.

Skills and attributes that make developers marketable

  • Hands-on experience will always be the deciding factor. University courses and coding programs should encourage as much project work as possible to equip students with a working knowledge of all the components of the software development cycle.
  • Specific tools that aspiring developers should know are Java Script and TypeScript. Node.js is also important.
  • Marketable technologies are web and APIs. Every software engineer will have to speak APIs and JSON. REST APIs are essential.
  • Deep knowledge of cloud platforms is essential.

The solution to the teaching system

The software industry develops rapidly, and many universities and coding programs cannot keep up with the change. They often teach the stuff that is long outdated.

However, we live in an industry where change is constant. Teachers will have to adapt and continually update the course material.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

Ashley Anthony

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.


Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Giovanna Scalzone

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
