Meet the octocats

Meet our new students at BeCode . This new breed of coders never tasted the silver spoon, has nothing to lose and is biting hard. I’m impressed already by what they’ve achieved in a few days.

Forget Unicorns, we call them the “octocats”: cats who do not fear water. Cats who have seven lives, plus one: that new life they reinvented for themselves as web builders.

Four days ago, they had no idea what the Terminal was. Today, they master git better than I do. They’re only getting started.

In seven months, when they’ll have outgrown us, they may become your new workmate. Treat them well, for they deserve nothing less than your respect.

Who knows, they might teach you a thing or two about how to learn fast.
