Graduate Stories

Apprentice to Software Developer

AdamPreview: Adam

I joined Northcoders contemplating whether I should go to University instead or not. After a chat with Chris and James I was convinced that joining Northcoders was best for my career.

It turned out to be one of the best decisions I ever made

April 2016

In just 3 months I learned more programming skills than the average university graduate would in 3 years. During the course we worked with the latest in demand frameworks and technologies.

Not only did I gain programming skills but I also gained experience working on live projects. Although the course was quite intense Chris and James worked overtime to make sure we understood it.

The atmosphere at Northcoders was really friendly everyone really helped each other out, we would play ping pong or pool during breaks we even had our own pool league. After graduating I received a lot of help with interview preparation, building my CV and Portfolio from Louise. The guys at Northcoders are really dedicated to the cause and if you put in the effort you'll succeed.
