Alex is one of the strongest students I have had an opportunity to work with. She is a consistent, hard worker, who does not ever want to hear the answer to a question, more just get a nudge in the right direction. I challenged her to complete 10 of the Project Euler (projecteuler.net) problems and she instead came back having solved 25, some of which using very elegant solutions.
Aside from quickly picking up the material presented, her strong SQL background has been a tremendous help in picking up new skills quickly. Alex is the type of developer who is hungry for knowledge and can thrive even in the face of uncertainty, I would be happy to have her on any team I was a part of.
Colin is super hard working. He loves learning and pushing himself to dive deeper and fully understand the code he is writing. He always has a great attitude and is a team player on a daily basis. He is great at balancing different pairing styles and is more than willing to step up and lead a group. As his instructor at Dev Bootcamp, I would enjoy working with him.
