The admission to Telerik Academy Alpha Java is now open for online application. The program is 6 months long and starts in November. Everyone can prepare for the exam by using our free materials or by taking similar courses with a focus on programming fundamentals.
Telerik Academy connects established software companies and rapidly developing startups with top tech talent that has graduated from Telerik Academy Alpha - our professional program training junior software engineers.
At 20, Kiril Peyanski graduated from Telerik Academy and started his first job as a programmer. He decided to spend enough time and choose the company that would best fit him. So, after several job interviews he finally picked Progress and is now part of the Kendo UI for React team.
George Mateev moved from his home town Pleven to Sofia in order to study “Computer Science” in Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”. In his first year at the university, he joined Telerik Academy’s professional program for software engineers to combine theoretical knowledge with hands-on practice and landed his first job as a software developer even before graduating from the Academy.
While studying “Computer Science” at university, Victor Metodiev decided to join Telerik Academy. His aim was to broaden and build on top of his programming skills and to kick-start a career as a software engineer. His efforts paid off soon. Only a week after graduating from Telerik Academy, Viktor started working as a full-stack developer in the Bulgarian software company Grafixoft.
97% of the Telerik Academy Alpha graduates today live and work in Bulgaria. Nearly 70% start working in IT in less than 2 months from their studies’ end, followed soon after by the rest.
"We're happy that there's been tremendous interest in the free programming fundamentals courses since we opened them up to everyone a year ago. For some participants, it is the best way to find out if programming is their career path; for others, it is a great way to prepare for the entrance exam to the 6-month Alpha programs." shared Alexandra Mechkova, our CEO.
How to create a good user experience, what skills and education are needed for a career in the UX industry? Polya Vasileva, our Creative Director and head trainer in the Upskill UX/UI Design program, answered these questions in an interview with Digitalk.
