Tell us a bit about your background before joining the Coding Fellowship.

I was working as a print-based Graphic Designer, but wanted to expand my skillset as most of the job adverts I was looking at included some degree of web design/development. I was made redundant around the same time I was looking for a new job, so it seemed the perfect opportunity to learn some new stuff.

Why did you choose Develop Me?

I had thought about doing a part-time HNC/HND course, but I didn’t really want to wait years before qualifying — a bootcamp course seemed ideal and Develop Me was within traveling distance.

How much coding had you done before starting the course?

A tiny bit. I’d done a short evening course in HTML a few years ago, but never really had the opportunity to put it into practice. I’d also just started doing an online video development bootcamp when I applied to Develop Me.

What do you hope to get out of the course?

A decent job!

Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I think I’d prefer to work in back-end development more than front-end, but I’m not really sure what that might look like in five years. I’d be happy with anything development-related really.
