As a spearhead for software engineering and nearshoring in Mexico, ITJ firmly holds the mission to offer mentorship and career development to a new generation of software engineers. The company recently held its first quarterly iOS Mobile Developer Bootcamp in Tijuana. The 2021 event hosted professionals and students in their last semester in Computers and Software Engineering, Software Development, and other engineering majors that are seeking to jumpstart their career as mobile developers.
Over one hundred young IT professionals and students from different states of Mexico and Latin America registered to attend this immersive, two-weekend hybrid program both online and on-site at the BIT Center in Tijuana.
The Bootcamp is highly attractive for young software engineers because it allows attendees to learn from industry experts at ITJ. The program covers the basic skills needed to become an iOS native mobile developer. After the completion of the Bootcamp, attendees are equipped and prepared with everything they need to create applications for mobile environments running the Apple operating system – iOS.
While explaining the purpose of the Bootcamp, Maritza Diaz, CEO of ITJ, states that “Mexico is booming with young engineering talent. At ITJ, we want to empower the next generation of software engineers with the right tools, technology, and resources to become world-class at their craft. In these young tech mentees, we have seen the potential and talent that, with the appropriate mentoring, creates software engineers suited to solve some of the most challenging problems of the future. Through the Bootcamp, we want to push this new generation forward and help it reach its full potential.”
The first quarterly Bootcamp consisted of two full-day weekend events ranging from July 24-25th to August 1st. Each day is divided into 30% of the time for technical knowledge and 70% for hands-on building experience in labs developing a real native mobile app. Each day is 7 hours long with one-hour lunch time and 15 min breaks every two hours to recharge.
During the event, ITJ staff offered job interviews to qualified attendees as part of its commitment to provide this young talent pool with the opportunity to boost their careers.
The event was hosted by ITJ and sponsored by the BIT Center, Tijuana EDC, and Mexico’s National Chamber of Electronics, Telecommunications, and Information Technologies Industry (CANIETI).
