I actually started to learn to code on my own. I learned Java through reading online resources and a textbook that I bought.
After learning Java on my own, I wanted to join a community and found Altcademy. I did the Coding 101 by Altcademy and appreciated the quick, personalized interactions and communications.
It’s a great program and community overall! I’ve learned a lot after I joined the program. Right now, I am doing Altcademy part-time. My mentor, Xiao, is super helpful with answering my questions in a timely manner.
Coding has become a new passion of mine. I used to only think about my studies in Japanese, but now I’m constantly balancing between the two, finding ways that both passions can help each other out. For example, now I can make personalized web apps to store and organize Kanji characters that I’ve learned and can make them shuffle through to help me study for the Japanese-language-proficiency test.
Going from beginners to professional coders, 85%+ of Altcademy alumni are hired within 6 months after graduation
