My name is Marina, and I currently reside in Chicago in the US. I work as a market researcher for a tech company, which involves analyzing websites daily. This exposure to websites sparked my interest in web development, as I found myself wanting to understand how to build and fix websites.
Although I have a non-tech background, I've dabbled in coding languages like R and Python. I also took a web development course that wasn't as intensive as a bootcamp, but it piqued my interest in web development. Now, I'm fully diving into web development through Altcademy's bootcamp program.
I enjoyed the web development course I took earlier, so I decided to invest in a bootcamp to gain more in-depth knowledge and follow a structured learning path. The deadlines in the bootcamp help keep me motivated and on track. The reason I took the leap was from dissatisfaction in my current day job and wanting to pursue something that has been a growing interest of mine, which is web development.
Ideally, I'd like to transition into a developer role. My plan is to work with someone at my current company to gain real-world experience by tagging along on junior developer projects. This way, I can apply the skills I've learned in the bootcamp while also gaining practical experience that will help me secure a job in the field.
I hope to apply my coding skills to improve websites and user experiences. As someone who enjoys building and creating things, I believe that a career in web development will allow me to utilize my skills and passions effectively.
