Speaking of community, we are so grateful for everyone who has shown up in support. Industry professionals have joined us online for panels on how tech is handling the transition to remote and for providing current students tips and encouragement. Guest software engineers from Bumped, Nike, and Hinge Health have joined us for mentor hours. A Tech manager talked to our students about using people skills in tech, specifically in a remote setting. Past Alchemy grads have offered advice to our incoming cohort on how to navigate the program successfully. There have also been multiple happy hours that connected our students with Alchemy staff, alum, and others in the industry.
None of this would have been possible without our amazing instructors and staff, and especially our teaching assistants. They have provided incredible insights into how the program can be effective, leveraging their own program experience, their deep empathy and support, and dedication to helping our instructors continue to be productive in the classroom. A special thanks as well to Shannon Rasimas, our Career Services Director, who has been instrumental in building and maintaining the Alchemy community online. Also, thanks to Zoom whose technologies and services have been the backbone of the WFH phenomenon.
