I think coding has a very bright future. It’s good knowledge to have. I have a degree in economics and finance. Even if I were to do sales for an IT company, by learning to code, I’d have a better idea of what I’m selling. I was working in tourism (sales department, driving and guiding the tours) in Iceland, but I lost the job in August 2020 due to COVID-19. I don’t want my career path to be location-specific anymore. I want to be more flexible and have the ability to work from home or wherever I want. And it’s just cool learning something new!
I like it! This program is precisely what I expected and was hoping for. I liked that Altcademy’s curriculum is very comprehensive and covers most of the topics. There are also assignments for each topic for practice after learning the theories and concepts.
It’s also really nice to have someone answer my questions when I am stuck. I really like my mentors. Coding is very interesting. I enjoy it!
I have set myself a deadline to complete the whole program by August this year. My end goal is to get a remote job as a full stack web developer at some point. In the beginning, though, I’d probably need to work in a team setting to get more experience in a team setting within a company.
Going from beginners to professional coders, 85%+ of Altcademy alumni are hired within 6 months after graduation
