Deep dive Academy was instrumental in guiding my success. There were daily meetings where my mentor closed my learning gaps and we problem-solved how to best build my web apps. Most importantly, Deep Dive taught me how to think critically like a professional developer, and this wisdom on “learning how to learn” has helped me learn any new subject with more confidence and finesse. I can’t thank Deep Dive enough for their positive and professional program & mentorship while starting a new career.
