Pizza Chef to Software Developer

StefanoPreview: Stefano

How did you find your time on the bootcamp?

I had such a lovely time at Northcoders. The instructors were always there ready to help technically and personally. I also met so many nice people and made long-lasting friendships. Northcoders is not just a place for learning, but a place where you get the feeling that you are a part of a "family" that supports you to achieve your goals.

What were you doing before the bootcamp and what made you apply?

Before Northcoders I was a Pizza Chef. I wanted to change my career and find something that I'd really love doing and fortunately I've found coding, the perfect career for me.

What was the support like on the course?

I always found great support from the teachers at Northcoders, especially when I was learning something very tough.

How much support did you receive from Northcoders with your job search after the course?

I had amazing support when I was looking for a job after the course. They arrange interviews for you with companies very soon after graduating and they are always there for you if you have any doubts.

What advice would you give to anyone thinking about applying?

I tried to learn in my own time but like all of my friends at Northcoders, I was unsuccessful. The reason is simple, there is so much material all over the internet but without a strong guide you cannot achieve most of your goals, or it will take you ten times longer. My advice is to learn the basics first and then if you are still interested in programming, then apply to Northcoders, because they know how to get you there.
