Scalac Camp is our proprietary internship program for students who want to learn Scala from the basics.
We decided to create it because we love to share knowledge and we are functional programming passionates. We have made it for people who want to practice with real coding and real projects, in response to market needs and to be well prepared for entering the IT market and taking the first steps into the commercial world. We believe that the Scala programming language is something worth investing in.
The first edition was organized during the summer of 2019. We invited students to our HQ in Gdańsk. The first edition gathered together 11 trainees during the first, more theoretical part of the camp, and 5 of these also took part in the second, definitely more practical part. Thanks to the camp they got a lot of new experience and great knowledge that they can use during their studies while searching for a new job or in their own projects!
And lastly! 3 of them have found their dream job – here, at Scalac! They have become Scala programmers. This is, of course, possible because the cooperation worked well for both sides during the whole camp – we are fully open to proposing longer cooperation and to stay with us in Scalac, in order to gain more experience even after the camp.
