Understanding the differences between Computer Science graduates and Makers graduates.
We don’t have a good way of comparing our developers to CS undergrads. Hiring partners may be the best people to answer this question, as they will have seen how Makers perform compared to CS undergrads. Here are some possibilities, but again, it is difficult to know from our side.
It is likely that our developers are more prepared for performing in a real developer job, as they are trained to do exactly that. We cover programming and web architecture, but we also cover communication, pairing, asking questions, asking for feedback, planning different phases of a project, working with different personalities in a team, general tech project terminology, etc.
Computer Science curriculum may be more oriented towards different parts of the theory of computation, overall covering more ground technically, but in a less integrated way.
