Interview with Full-Stack alumnus, Hristo Georgiev
by Claudia Boker
Can you introduce yourself? What were you doing before you joined Constructor Academy and where are you now?
Hi, my name is Hristo. I'm originally from Bulgaria and before I did the Full-Stack Bootcamp, I worked at a cleaning company here in Zurich.
Now I work at Constructor Academy as a software developer.
What did you like most about Constructor Academy’s bootcamp?
What I liked the most about the Bootcamp is that we studied only relevant topics today. Technology that is used in the tech industry today. Ultimately, increasing our chances of finding a job quickly and easily after the Bootcamp.
What was your biggest challenge during the bootcamp?
Well, the Bootcamp is very intense, you learn a lot of new information each day and my biggest challenge was just keeping up with the added information every day and trying to assimilate it.
Tell us about your capstone project.
So, my capstone project was called "Analyze My Music" and we decided to use the Spotify API because it provides a lot of interesting data to the user. Technically you cannot see this data in the Spotify app by yourself, so, we decided to consume this data and show it understandably, with some cool charts, for example, the top tracks that you have listened to for the past year, the tempo they have, their beat/dance level they have. The most useful feature, if you ask me, was the “create my playlist” feature. This feature was based on a couple of metrics you can define yourself as a user.
How did you grow on a personal level?
So, after I did the Bootcamp, I realized that I'm an extremely fast learner and I discovered my passion for coding and how much I like it.
How was life after the bootcamp (are you happy with your new job, are you still in touch with the students, etc.)?
I loved the Bootcamp so much and stayed connected with all my classmates. We have a telegram group, chat daily, and meet weekly. I also grew close to the Constructor Academy crew, I'm friends with all of them. We shared a lot of nice moments after the Bootcamp.
Would you recommend Constructor Academy’s Bootcamp to your friends?
Yes, totally! If you want to change your career path or learn to code properly, so that you can quickly find a job afterwards, then yes, I recommend taking Bootcamp!
Thanks a lot for the interview, Hristo. We wish you all the best for your professional and private future.
