Background

I’m an interpreter of sign language and a guide for blind people. This is something that I have really enjoyed doing.

Why are you attending the Coding Fellowship?

I was curious about coding so I decided to start teaching myself about it. I discovered that I really enjoyed it. I started to meet people from the industry at events and meetups and was advised to look into enrolling on the DevelopMe_ bootcamp. It seemed like a great opportunity to develop myself in the field and get the skills needed to start working in the industry quickly.

What role are you looking for after the Coding Fellowship? Where do you see yourself in the future?

I’ve really enjoyed the frontend stuff I’ve done so far. I find the visual side of web development very interesting. There is so much you can create with code!

I also think that it’s important to have an understanding of what’s going on in the backend and how some of the backend languages work so you are able to understand what is going on in the background.

What was your coding experience before the Coding Fellowship?

I didn’t have much experience before starting the course. I had mostly been learning HTML and CSS, teaching myself by reading documentation and following some online courses on Codecademy.

How have you found the Fellowship so far?

I think is great, we are learning a lot of new things everyday. It’s really intensive, but well worth it.

What have you enjoyed most?

So far the language I’ve enjoyed the most is JavaScript and learning about how to use the command line terminal is super cool.

What have you found hardest?

Maybe php, trying to understand how everything works on the backend, but eventually we all got there!

What advice would you give to someone thinking of attending the Fellowship?

I would definitely advise them to do it. The teachers and the people who run the Fellowship are very nice, the course is really well structured and you meet a lot of great people during the course.
