In August, Cellcard X Sabaicode signed a new agreement to launch the Full Stack Developer Bootcamp 2.0, the second installment of its 2021 pilot program which provided high-potential students with the digital skills they need to pursue careers in digital industries.
For the Full Stack Developer Bootcamp 2.0, Cellcard awards 15 talented students with a full program sponsorship, which covers a 6-month intensive full-time curriculum and hands-on training, supervised by highly experienced programmers.
Application for the course and the scholarships started in August, with a total of 110 applications received and evaluated through SabaiCode’s thorough selection process gauging each candidate’s interest, comprehension, knowledge and commitment through a series of interviews.
