From the very start, our company has had a strong technology stack for both C# and PHP. And because we were faced with a high demand for front-end development from western European markets, we decided to launch an academy for both internal and external developers to improve there skills in this field. To be able to meet the growing demant for front-end development.
It has already been four years since we launched the Lithuanian Front-end Academy, with the goal to share our knowledge and build a community around front-end development.
The Front-end Academy is a workshop-based academy within Present Connection, where people improve there skills in software development by participating in a 3-month course. During the academy, participants create their own projects using React.js for front-end and Node.js for back-end.
During those years, 25 external and 14 internal participants finished courses, presented their projects and got their certificates.
Present Connection’s ‘Head of Delivery’ Ernestas Burokas took the lead for all Front-end Academies. Working as a full-stack developer and later as a team lead Ernestas wanted some new challenges and suggested that teaching students and new developers’ front-end technologies was totally his ‘thing’. A perfect match to share his knowledge and grow his competencies.
