Schoolboy Egor TalkerFrom Belgorod Region, thanks to his training, he decided on a profession: he sees himself as a specialist in Data Science or web and desktop development. Wants to develop in the field of artificial intelligence and machine learning. Learn programming languages at Code of the Future project it was not easy, but interesting: at that time, Yegor was in 7th grade, and on the course they used mathematics of 11th grade and the first year of university. I came to courses with experience, knew the Python programming language well and began to learn the C# language. In addition, behind Egor had a lot of practice, independent mini-projects, and three years of study at Quantorium technopark.
Ksenia Voronova from The Republic of Tatarstan, thanks to the course, successfully coped with solving problems at the USE in informatics. The knowledge gained helped with admission.
