CEO of UNIT Factory
UNIT Factory is an innovative institution that trains IT specialists according to the unique ucode curriculum. “We offer clients training to start their careers in IT. By career, we mean not only working in a company but also starting your own business.” The main idea of UNIT Factory is to create favorable conditions for getting two main things in order to be successful. “First, is the technical knowledge and skills to increase expertise in your chosen IT field. Secondly, it is developing “soft skills:” critical thinking, communication, collaboration, and creativity. We don’t just teach technology; we develop personalities, teach people to learn, teach to look for new approaches, and learn the tools needed to solve problems. It is vital to realize that the IT industry is developing very rapidly, and what is relevant today will begin to become obsolete very soon.” During the closure, the whole team went through a range of emotions – from sadness to relief. We closed the door with contradictory feelings. We realized that this is the right and natural act, because learning takes place in educational clusters (open spaces) with close interaction of students, and this format complicates the fight against the spread of the virus. Sadly, all the plans have lost their relevance at the moment. Still, we feel uplifted that this is a new challenge for the team and the company, and a chance to identify our weaknesses and improve. Despite the economic crisis that began with the quarantine pandemic, Florin still hopes that UNIT Factory will not close.
