What encouraged you to join Wyncode? When did you complete the program? What were you doing prior to the program?
What encouraged me to join Wyncode was the desire to finish a development project where I work. We hired a software development company over a year [before I enrolled at Wyncode] and they didn’t deliver. We had to take care of it and we decided I should take the web dev program.
I’ve been working in IT for the past 10-12 years and the good thing is that now I get to stay in my field, but working in what I love the most, which is developing!
Is there anything you remember being extra hard or surprisingly easy from your time in the program?
The most difficult thing for me was to balance all the aspects of my life, family, work and school. I overcame this with the support of my family.
We all know bootcamps are tough. What is some advice you would share with current students to help them successfully graduate the program?
DEDICATE ALL THE TIME POSSIBLE TO IT. Also, ask a lot of questions.
What are you most excited about in your new career as a Web Developer?
This new set of skills are powerful for freelancing and expanding my career in IT.
