Demo Day conference is a new educational event for OTUS

On December 11, you will find 6 lectures in different IT areas: programming, testing, Data Science, management and information security. Participation is free. Read more about the format in the article.

During its existence OTUS we had time to experiment with different activities. We had office meetups, career intensive and CTF competitions. We hold workshops, open classes and open days on a regular basis.

And now we have a desire to hold events that would personify OTUS… That is, we would unite all our directions, teachers and students. The Demo Day online conference will take place in this festival format on Friday, December 11.

“For almost four years of its existence, Otus has amassed a decent capital – these are our teachers and their knowledge of the latest industry cases. We want to start sharing this knowledge with the community, it seems to us that this is a useful and necessary contribution to the development of IT specialists, to the growth of their competence. Come and rate it! “
