BOOT CAMPS

The Boot Camp is a week that we propose to be immersed at Pôle 3D and to train in the best conditions at the entrance contest.

Feedback from Philémon Caron on the video games boot camp 2019: “Learn a lot, touch the job and know if your choice of direction is the right one. “

“I really enjoyed the boot camp for three aspects:
1- Meet the candidates who will form the future promotion, we stayed in touch via the social networks.
Positive for those who had never touched the development of games. This allows us to discover what we will learn and reassure ourselves about the training we want to do.
Meeting with the supervising team, really different in terms of relationship than what there is in high school with people closer and accessible.
2- For the competition preparation:
Very interesting to do the white tests, to learn a lot of things that can then feel more comfortable especially in the practical events with fun stories that can memorize.
3- The week was intense with a good mix between the white events, the project to develop, the competition to prepare and the moments of conviviality.
