WHY HACKADEMY?

As digitization is influencing our daily work-life, it becomes increasingly important to understand the processes behind it. Not only techies but also business students need to have an idea on how programming works. This is why we developed START Hackademy! With START Hackademy we are giving you the opportunity to get a jump start on programming: by the end of the programme you will have a good understanding of the computer language python, which you will eventually be able to apply to other languages and projects. Therefore, START Hackademy is your first step into the area of programming!

EXPERIENCES FROM PREVIOUS PARTICIPANTS

  • “With its Hackademy, START Global has taken on a pioneering role in the teaching of digital skills at the University of St. Gallen. As a participant, I had my first intensive contact with the Python programming language, which I use almost daily today, be it for data analytics or as a teaching assistant in other boot camps.” – Sebastian, Bachelor in Economics

  • “I really enjoyed being able to participate in such an amazing event. I learned basic programming skills and met exciting people. Now I have a good basis for my further coding career.” – Felix, Bachelor in Business Administration

  • “START Hackademy has enabled me, an absolute amateur at programming, to build a base for coding. I thereby got to know platforms like GitHub and softwares such as Atom. Also, I had the opportunity to meet great and passionate people whom I would have never met without START Hackademy.” – Estelle, Bachelor in Business Administration

  • “Coding does not only teach you how to tell a computer what to do. Programming can teach you different ways to solve problems and show you a new way to learn.” – Julian, Bachelor in Economics

FAQ

HSG FOUNDATION AND START HACKADEMY

We are proud to organize the second edition of Hackademy, which we were able to realize with the help of the HSG Foundation. The goal of this initiative is motivating HSG students to take an interest in programming and getting them a headstart in a small group. Our aspiration is encouraging these students to further educate themselves and become more well-rounded persons with the capability of correctly judging technological projects as well as taking responsibility within these. We would especially like to thank Ernst Risch, managing director of the HSG Foundation, for enabling us to put these ideas into practice.
