Honestly this has been the highlight of my year so far, I've enjoyed it so much. It has certainly sparked something.
Anon, Selection Pool Learner
The first test was not a coding test, but it was a great analogy for how coding would be. You are faced with a problem; you try a solution, and it may or may not work. You don’t quit. It is all about resilience. I’m expecting failure and a lot of it! It’s how you mentally dust yourself off and go again.

01 Founders is different: you are guaranteed a job, guaranteed a minimum salary. It is peer to peer, so you make a lot of connections. You meet people who want to do a speciality, and then they could help you with your own startup. Maybe you can find like-minded people within the fellowship.
