Natalia from last year’s huddle…

“The Agile Summer Huddle was an amazing experience. For the first time since graduating I had a chance to work within a team to develop an actual product for the customers. The atmosphere within the team, tutors and organisers were extremely helpful. The Summer Huddle taught us how to work in teams, follow agile management principles, and develop a product. This real life experience is something that we’re not prepared for at universities, therefore I strongly believe that this course opens many job opportunities. I found one shortly after the course and my employer highly appreciated the experience I gained at The Summer Huddle”.
