Are you a new repatriate? Do you have experience in programming? Looking for a job in Israeli Hi-Tech? Olim.Tech is a project of our friends, IniTech, which helps integrate new repatriates into the IT field. It is supported by the Israeli Innovation Authority. The goal of the project is to gather a pool of experienced developers among new repatriates and introduce them to the best companies in the industry. Don't wait a minute - join the project today: https://olim.tech/for-t
The sphere of Hi-Tech Israel, in particular IT companies, is one of the fastest-growing areas. Already now it employs about 10% of the population, but there is still a lack of programmers, testers and other specialists. Therefore, many are thinking about working in this promising field. However, some are stopped by the myths that exist around IT. Igor Korol, director of Tel-Ran EC, who has 21 years of experience in IT, is helping us to understand the real situation in the fie
The IT sector in Israel is so important that it takes up about 40% of the country's total economy. That is why there are so many rumors about work in this field. For example, it is believed that IT specialists receive incredibly high salaries. Moreover many still think that only fluent Hebrew and English speakers can work in this field, and they make up stories about unavailability of vacancies. Since nobody told the truth about the job placement in IT, we decided to ask the
I realize that this post could be interpreted as an advertisement, so I will not mention or even cite the Tel-Ren experience. I will be as objective as possible. Unfortunately, I see a lot of absurdities and even nonsense, which are often spread by "experts" who often have nothing to do with the industry, and do not even bother to explain their views. So how does one choose the right course in high-tech? Let's start in order. 1. The final benefit of the course The main criter
In the first part, we began a discussion on how to choose the right course in Israel's high-tech sector. Let's continue. 5. Availability of consultations on the passed material Throughout the course, it often happens that you miss a lesson for a legitimate reason (work, health, family, etc.). Besides, even with a perfect explanation of the material by the teacher, something can be forgotten, "slipped out" of your mind. For this case additional consultations are needed and, pr
Some have heard the word, but do not know what it is. Others have guessed that there is such a program. Others are actively gathering information on how to get there. Representatives from Tel-Ran helped us put everything in order. "Masa" is a state educational program supported by the Jewish Agency for Israel "Sokhnut". The program allows you to visit Israel, get acquainted with the country, gain new knowledge and impressions. If you wish, you can repatriate after Masa and be
At the moment Israel, despite the fact that it is quite a small country, is in second place in the world by the number of startups - after Silicon Valley by the Startup Genome survey, and in the Bloomberg rating of innovative states, Israel is in fifth place, ahead of the United States and Great Britain. Currently, almost every second startup acquired by U.S. companies comes from Israel. It is accepted that Israel's domestic market is small, while the experience, business ski
Again we want to destroy this persistent and dangerous myth: a mathematician does not mean a programmer, and a programmer does not mean a mathematician. Here, apparently, there is confusion between programmers themselves and specialists involved in the development of algorithms (the latter need higher mathematics very much!). A good programmer must have a mastery of logic, and the level of mathematics may well be school level. This is confirmed by the huge number of our succe
They say that it is almost impossible to automate testing for 100%. And in fact, the human eye, subtly feeling harmony and beauty, able to assess the user-friendliness of the interface - can not be replaced by any program. In addition, manual testing helps to quickly get a conclusion about the performance of the site, even if it has undergone major functional changes.
Then why do we also cover automated testing (QA automation) in the course? It's simple: a program written by
Discovering a completely new area of knowledge, one can rarely be sure exactly how his future learning will "enter", what technology will be given more easily, what material will be absorbed more quickly.
To ease the problem of choice, we have developed the following course structure. Both future testers and future programmers start their studies together, with the course "Basics of Programming". Thus, students have as much as 3 months to make a more informed choice of a fu
