This spring the Brainster team welcomed the new batch of international Bootcamp participants learning UX/UI Design and Data Science. As much as it is exciting for the participants, the Brainster team always has some last-minute jitters before initiating a new Bootcamp.
Will we have any class-skippers in this batch? Will we break our PB on finding jobs for the students? Which instructor will be the favourite one this year? Many questions remain unanswered until the moment of the first intro class. Our Student Success Manager Maya orchestrates the whole onboarding process leaving nothing to chance. Birds start to sing and the journey begins – a group of young people are starting to transform their careers!
These are the Brainster April highlights:
We launched our ‘Future of jobs’ report.
The job market is moving at full speed and some professions have it better than others. The data from the latest report of the World Economic Forum – The future of jobs report for 2020 – states that the job market will be significantly different in the next 10 years. It is estimated that as much as 50% of jobs will be replaced by automation. Check our Future of jobs report.
We declared Horia-Iulian State a student of the month
Since early on in the Math & Stats module, Julian has been a devoted participant. Apart from fostering curiosity and open-mindedness, he demonstrated an unwavering will to build onto existing knowledge and acquire new skills, even if it meant facing some demons from the past education.

Our students successfully completed a UX/UI Design hackathon
As a part of our Bootcamp, the students get to work together in teams, towards the same objective for a client. The challenging part was to come up with a solution in just 48 hours! This hackathon brought creative minds together to tackle the challenge given by our Learning partner, Traders Alloy. This is an early-stage start-up concerning Financial Markets for ordinary people. They already have a desktop application, and they like to offer a mobile application. So this is where our students jump into.
The teams developed four innovative and fresh UX/UI design solutions for a mobile app. They have learned a lot during the hackathon, about their colleagues, their skills and also about themselves. Read more.
