They all recently started their web development careers with our Web Developer Boot Camp!
So, if you’re not sure if coding is for you, simply because you don’t have any experience, check out the stories of four recent participants in our program to learn more about their careers before the boot camp and what they were able to create in just a few months.
Kari never thought of herself as a “techie,” but when it came time to rejoin the workforce after more than 8 years as a stay-at-home mom, she decided to try web development.
With a degree in advertising, a field that had changed greatly in the past eight years, she was faced with a big decision.
“I knew I would have to go back to school one way or another,” Kari said. “Either to go back into the advertising field….or to dive into something completely different, something that, now at 32 with a family of five, would work for our family.”
She decided web development would be a good fit because of the flexibility that goes along with it. She could continue to play a big part in her three children's lives, while being able to apply herself to a fun, meaningful career.
As a middle school math teacher, Abhi noticed that his students were particularly engaged whenever he incorporated games into his lessons. With that in mind, he decided to pursue web development in hopes of becoming an educational game developer and designer. “Instead of shunning technology from schools, I believe we can utilize technology to enhance the collective academic mastery of our nation's students,” Abhi wrote in his site’s bio. It comes as no surprise that Abhi’s portfolio site already features a math game designed to teach the multiplier effect. His site also features a responsive page about The Matrix, a blog, and additional work he has done outside of class.
