To be a successful Holberton student, you need genuine motivation and passion for software engineering. Success here is not about what you know prior to attending, it’s about the hard work you put in once you’re here. We like to think of it as 3 main traits
- Grit - passion, hard work, AND perseverance. Gaining a specialized skill takes time. You will have to put in a lot of hours if you want to become a software engineer
- Collaboration - willingness and want to work with others. To share knowledge and ask good questions
- Kindness - giving ourselves and others the patience to learn and fail. Breaking the toxic cycle of performance-only results and acknowledging we go farther when we go together.
