My name is Farhan. I was born to Indian parents in Connecticut. What Lambda School has really nailed is the ability to be able to teach the new technology tools as they are built, because stuff that I learned a year ago is already kind of become outdated and that's no longer the right way to do things.

But I've since since I got  my job, and I started studying for interviews, I was very, very quickly able to learn stuff on my own and pick up stuff from documentation. If I want to build an app this way, then even though I've never done it before, I can kind of intuitively think of  the structure and what tools I'll need.

I think no other school does that in engineering programs across the country. I've worked at Stanford, I've worked at my school back in Dubai, I started the first technology program there. I taught coding in a village in India and my dad's ancestral village in the 10th grade, I took a year off High School. Like, nobody teaches technology that way. I think that's that's really an undersell – no one looks at Lambda School for that, people look at Lambda for the community. And yeah, that's a great aspect of it. But the truth is, it makes people self-sufficient, which in today's world is like unheard of. And that's why employers appreciate Lambda students so much at work.
