Vapasi is a #TalkTechToHer initiative from ThoughtWorks to enable experienced women developers who are currently on a career break and looking to re-enter the world of programming. The bootcamp, spread over four weeks will help you sharpen your programming skills through hands-on sessions on object-oriented programming practices.
The last Vapasi Bootcamp was hosted in August 2017 at our Hyderabad office with a batch of 22 shortlisted developers. 3 of them are now placed in leading technology companies. 3 others are currently interning with ThoughtWorks. And 1 other has joined ThoughtWorks as a full-time employee.

Q) Is this a paid bootcamp?
A) No. The Vapasi bootcamp is free of charge.
Q) How will this bootcamp help me?
A) The bootcamp will help sharpen your programming skills, which gets you on par with the current job market requirements.
Q) How do I register for the next Vapasi Bootcamp?

Q) Is there a selection process for the bootcamp?
A) Yes. Our experienced senior developers volunteer to be trainers for this bootcamp in addition to their regular project work. This leaves us with only a limited number of people that we can work with per batch of a bootcamp. And since the seats are limited, we need a selection process to shortlist candidates.
Q) What happens after I complete the bootcamp?
A) On completion of the bootcamp, you can choose to apply for a 3-6 month internship with ThoughtWorks or to any other tech organizations to continue your career journeys.
