As a leading technology training provider in London for over 25 years, JBI Training has stayed at the forefront of new and emerging technologies. We aim to equip software engineers and developers with the most in-demand and cutting-edge skills to thrive in today’s digital landscape. Recently, we partnered with a major UK internet service provider to upskill their software engineering team in Typescript through a comprehensive 3-day Typescript training program.
To reinforce learning, Matt led the team through building real-world applications with React, Angular, and Node.js. These labs challenged learners to make practical use of Typescript’s abilities like interfaces, generics, enums, and modules to improve application architecture. Mateusz reviewed code submissions and provided individual feedback to help polish understanding. By training’s end, the team walked away fully equipped to migrate their company’s codebase to Typescript and hit the ground running on new projects.
Across the board, the response to the Typescript course was overwhelmingly positive. On a scale of 1 to 10, participants gave an average rating of 9.3 for overall impression, 10 for the instructor, 9.3 for presentation, 10 for content, and 8.7 for structure.
Regarding Matt, feedback included "Amazing, engaging and very knowledgeable," "Made the sessions fun and interesting," and "Covered some pretty heavy and complex logic without making us feel uncomfortable asking questions." His balance of lectures, examples, and labs made the intensive course content feel approachable.
Participants also appreciated the real-world focus and practical tools provided. One noted, "We're left with very good examples and use cases that will serve as a reference in our day to day job." Another said the course gave them "exercises to practice that aligned with what we wanted our developers to learn."
Suggestions for improvement included spending more time solidifying understanding before advancing to new topics and extending the course by a day or two to allow for further practice. Some felt the breadth of material covered was challenging to fully absorb in just 3 days.
Overall, the training undeniably levelled up the software engineering team's Typescript skillset and built enthusiasm to adopt it on current and upcoming projects. One learner summed it up saying, "I guess my only issue was that 3 days was too short to cover and practice it all, but we're left with very good examples and use cases."
From the positive feedback and engagement witnessed firsthand, our Typescript training successfully equipped the client's developers to utilize Typescript's many benefits in their day-to-day work. Learners walked away with the confidence to migrate existing systems to Typescript as well as architect new applications leveraging its capabilities for scalability, stability, and maintainability.
The practical focus enabled the team to hit the ground running applying Typescript across the company's web architecture. By investing in upskilling their engineers with the most relevant and empowering technologies, our client continues laying the foundation for delivering on their ambitious network expansion goals. Their trust in our real-world, expert-led training proves JBI's commitment to fully preparing teams for the technologies powering the future of business.
After completing JBI Training's intensive 3-day Typescript course, we recommend the software engineering team continue honing their skills with these follow-up courses:
With these targeted follow-on courses, developers can continue their Typescript journey and solidify their skills building the high-performance and secure web apps necessary for delivering a world-class 10Gbps fibre broadband experience.
