Welcome to Ganymede's Developer Day!

Thank you for joining us as we celebrate the graduation of our Ganymede cohort! We’re so proud of all that they have achieved over the last 5 months. Since beginning their journeys into web development on March 23rd, they’ve gained hands-on experience in HTML, CSS, JavaScript, Java, Test-Driven Development, MySQL, and Spring. They put all of these skills to use to develop their capstone project – a full-stack web application that you’ll get to see today. As you watch, you can also learn more about each grad by clicking their name to visit their Alumni Portal profile.
