Unfortunately, the majority of university graduates of our country are not prepared well enough to immediately join the workforce. Especially in the software industry, there is a large gap between academic education and the practical implementation of it. A fresh graduate very rarely has the well-rounded skill set to mature as a software engineer. In this context, an advanced training-based position within the software industry itself can serve as the bridge from academic to professional life for many CS graduates.
Astha IT’s internship programme started last year through their inaugural Dev Bootcamp with a plan to recur yearly. It’s a three-month long program designed around preparing fresh CS graduates for the software development industry. It promises to provide hands-on, project-based 360 degree training to a group of talented graduates. There are dedicated training sessions on Design Patterns, Software Architecture, GIT, Distributed Programming & Microservice, DevOps among other topics conducted by tech professionals specializing in corresponding technology.
“With a few exceptions, we have noticed that a vast majority of computer science graduates of our country are not industry-ready. Some are very good problem solvers, but do not know much about tech. Some know tech well, but do not know how to mature as a complete software engineer,” – says Hasnaeen Rizvi Rahman, the founder and CEO of Astha IT.
