Please use a computer browser for a more comfortable reading experience. 

Dear Contributors,

It’s been the 15th week since you “forged” the students with the knowledge necessary to make them career-ready talents. However, before they take the plunge into the industry, they must be deployed to the “battlefield” of the Capstone Project. 🪖

Yes, your students are getting ready for their Capstone Project. 🥳

The best support you can give your students is your experience handling product development from end to end or managing projects. It would be practical for them. 💡

Good luck guiding your students. Here are some essential points you need to know for this week:

#5 Meet Kenrick Tandrian, A Bangkit Graduate Who Became a Current Bangkit Instructor!

Everyone can dream, but not everyone can keep their dreams alive. Kenrick Tandrian (22), an Information System graduate from Universitas Pelita Harapan, was determined to do the second thing. 🔥

Kenrick’s interest in Cloud Computing grew from his fascination with web design. It encouraged Kenrick to sign up for Bangkit 2022 and pick the above path. 👨‍💻

Persevering in 900 hours of learning, Kenrick graduated with distinction and earned the highest point in Bangkit 2022. It didn’t stop there. Kenrick was also part of a team that got into the top product-based capstone project, deserving IDR 140 million incubation funds from Google and Dikti. 💵

Bangkit is more than just a place to learn. This program can bridge us with opportunities we’ve never considered.” ✨

After Kenrick passed the Associate Cloud Engineer certification exam, he was hired by Google Indonesia as a Cloud Technical Resident, and now, he is one of the Bangkit instructors.

Thank you for broadening your student’s horizons regarding tech and soft skills relevant to their future. We believe that they are ready to implement them in the capstone project. Yes, they can do it, just as Kenrick said:

Again, Bangkit could bring us to a place we never dared to dream of. So if you can dream it, then you can do it!
(Kenrick Tandrian, Bangkit 2024 Instructor)
