I’ve come to really enjoy writing these end-of-year review posts. I find it’s not until I’m looking back that I realise just how huge a year it’s been, and how much we’ve achieved – and 2015 was no exception! This year SSW doubled our YouTube presence, we’ve kept working and upgrading to the best and […]

What a corker this year has been. We’ve had a lot of excitement within SSW. We’ve made a lot of changes, and run a lot of new events, and these things couldn’t have happened without the wonderful people who work with me. I’d like to give you a summary of a few of the cool […]
Creating an ouroboros, or: how coding boot camp students created SugarLearning, a tool that now runs their course
I’m having a ball this month – I’ve been to Melbourne to give 3 presentations at TechEd and I get to do the same again at TechEd Sydney in a couple of weeks. I’m also enjoying the hubbub and excitement of getting ready to release SugarLearning, which was made by the students of the first […]
As you may remember from my last blog post, the 3 teams were having their solutions critiqued by a panel of judges with extensive experience in building software. Today, I am excited to announce which team our judges picked as being the most successful (giving the most business value). The voting was tight and I […]
It has been an amazing, intense 9 weeks, and while I’m sad that it is over, I couldn’t be more proud of the guys and what they’ve achieved. They’ve all improved in different ways: Some of them arrived with a lot of experience… now they are awesome. Some were juniors straight out of uni… they’re […]

SSW invites you to come and meet our newest FireBootCamp graduates. These developers are so passionate about coding they took 9 weeks out of their life to do nothing but code, and they are keen to show off what they have learned and created.
This event gives employers the chance to see the web applications our Boot Campers have developed, speak to them in an informal setting, book appointments for interviews, and enjoy a scrumptious morning tea on us.
Week 2 of FireBootCamp was a whirlwind for the students as they held their first sprint review meetings.
