Danilia Davidson has a private equity & VC background, in the past 8 years she has lived in 6 cities, 5 countries and 4 continents and on her journeys around the world has been lucky enough to meet some awesome people and to learn about the coolest technologies and the newest start ups
“I moved to Australia one year and a half ago from Tel Aviv, which recently got ranked second best city in the world for its startup ecosystem. In Tel Aviv startup founders live and breathe a unique lifestyle and attitude and I learnt a lot by working with young Israeli entrepreneurs. I speak four languages (and understand a few more), enjoy hiking, travelling, and jazz music”.
Her new project is Sydney Development Camp. An education startup that teaches people how to code using Ruby on Rails in a 10-week intensive training program. There is a real shortage of developers across the country and I am solving this problem by adopting a new approach to produce talent: offering a program, which teaches beginners how to code from the scratch and then connects them to potential employers.
“Graduating world class junior developers: our goal is to have developers job-ready at the end of the program, which means that by the time our students graduate, they are able to contribute value to an engineering team at any start-up/ high tech enterprise or launch their own venture”.
