YOUR ACCOUNTMy Classroom
I have lived in the UK my entire life, just outside of London. I have wanted to move to London for a while now and I am 26 years old. I used to work for Microsoft in a non-technical role as an account manager for a year and a half, but it was too bureaucratic for my liking. I then started my own business and eventually sold it. I am now learning how to code, which I believe will be beneficial when I start working on different ideas. I am now looking for a job again and I plan to pursue entrepreneur stuff later on. I have always wanted the coding skill set and the product development side, such as understanding what is possible and how it is possible. I would like to eventually build out my own ideas in the future.
In the past, I tried it with Codecademy, but I struggled because there was no accountability. I put coding on the backburner since it wasn't a priority, but now I'm putting in 4 to 6 hours a day on Altcademy.com and doing business on the side in the evening.
I really like Altcademy. It is exactly what I am looking for because it is self-paced, and the content is related to web development, which I am familiar with. The instructor has guided me and I knew what I needed to get out of the course, such as understanding the fundamentals. The actual structure of the course is nice and it is text-based with assignments at different checkpoints and big final assignments. It is slightly overwhelming, but never too much.
I have five months until the end of my current runway, and I need to figure out what job I would like to do. I'm considering full-stack, front-end, or design engineering. I'm thinking of looking for smaller-scale startups to utilize my coding skills to implement my ideas on the side or in the background.
"I love the satisfaction that comes from solving technical problems"
"I am surprised by how fast my mentor answers my questions and how reachable he is. I like that I can study in my own rhythm."
Going from beginners to professional coders, 85%+ of Altcademy alumni are hired within 6 months after graduation
