Students about QWANT
I learned Basics during PreSeason, then I learned C, and then I did projects with teammate Erasyl, studying web-scraping, data science pipeline(Loading dataset, summarizing, visualizing., evaluating algorithms, making predictions with sckit-learn), data analysis , SQL! The projects ranged from analyzing Housing Prices to independently scraping and analyzing a government shipping website. Thanks to Qwant and mentors for the opportunity to develop skills in such an exciting format!
In my opinion QWANT is an ideal option for many who want to quickly pump up in coding. It is different from online courses. Online courses are like learning to swim in a pool with ready-made ideal conditions, and a quantum is more like if you are thrown into the sea with a life jacket and you like it or not - you will learn.
In the course of my studies, I completed the programs: Season arc 01, Season arc 02. I learned valuable lessons about JAP C. During the course of the FullStack program, I completed a lot of cool, full-featured applications. Thanks to QWANT, I learned the method of good programming style, how to create my own web applications. Gained the courage to submit my resume for a job. There were several offers, one even from a company from Dublin.
One of the strengths of QWANT is the community of students and mentors. There is always someone who will prompt, help, advise and motivate. It is noticeable that in the IT industry, society is more open to helping each other. It is very cool that the program has a lot of usefulness that you will not find out ANYWHERE else. Projects completed under the QWANT program provide insight into the real cases faced by Data Scientists.
I enjoyed my experience at QWANT School's Code Foundation program. I learned the ins and outs of programming. I would like to thank Timur and Maira for showing me the way and guiding me. I wish QWANT school great success and achievements.
What I like most about the program is that there are no lectures and exams and you can study on your own at a convenient time, although this requires discipline. There are a lot of smart and interesting guys here who are always ready to help. I believe that the ability to program helps to master not only technical skills, but also develops analytical thinking, trains imagination and creativity, improves understanding of the dynamic world.
I was very interested in a training model that allows you to improve your skills on the job. In addition, an important advantage for me was the deeply applied nature of the projects. Studying at the school has already paid off - with my team in the company, I began to implement a service in the field of Wellness. In the future, I plan that our team will contribute to the development of a deeper digitalization of the healthcare industry in the Republic of Kazakhstan.
I like being able to work at my own pace and see progress within the platform right away. There are no lectures, teachers, or grades in the active learning model. We learn from mistakes, we solve real projects! Qwant is a great opportunity for future programmers in Kazakhstan to upgrade their skills and open up new horizons.
