How has your life changed since Shadow-Soft Academy?

“Prior to joining Shadow-Soft Academy, I found the work that I was doing to be interesting but unfulfilling. Shadow-Soft Academy equipped me with the technology skill set I needed to take control of the direction of my career and opened up new doors I never thought possible. Academy can do the same for anyone else who is willing to take on the challenge.”

Reasons We Started Shadow-Soft Academy

Investing in the Technology Community

We wanted to give back to a community that had been so good to us! Over the last decade Shadow-Soft has grown with the open source and emerging technology community and we felt the growing pains along the way. Similar growing pains that those trying to break into our industry are feeling now and we wanted to help ease some of those pains. Shadow-Soft Academy is our opportunity to develop and mentor technology talent at no cost to those who participate.

Helping People Super-Charge Their Careers

When we were interviewing folks, or just talking with different people in the industry, we kept hearing the same thing “I feel like I’m stuck in a rut and I can’t figure out how to get out of it”. When we heard that we heard the frustration and felt their pain. We set out to find a way to close the gap between where people currently were in their career and where they saw themselves being.

The Desire For Well Rounded Technologist

With the world of silos fading away, we wanted to develop technologies that were multifaceted and able to tackle a number of challenging technology problems
