What were you doing before Ubiqum?

I had just finished a Masters in Events Management, which wasn’t at all related to Coding. I was also studying English as a second language.

Why did you want to start coding?

I’ve always like the idea of programming but I never took the time to study it. I never thought previously that I’d take this as a career route.

What made you sign up with Ubiqum?

After my Masters Degree, I was unsure of my next career step. I signed up to give myself an opportunity for the future and to get trained in something practical.

What did you find difficult on the course?

Since I never had any previous experience to coding before starting the bootcamp, I did feel a little bit left behind by the guys that did. I just had to find my own rhythm.

Did the program work for you?

Coming from zero experience, I have since managed to build a website, learn Javascript and even built a mobile app. I never would’ve imagined that possible beforehand, so yeah I’m very happy.

What would say about Ubiqum when talking to other people?

They’re not lying when they say it’s like a real working environment. They give you entry deadlines for tasks, provide the resources in a list and you get the mentors to support. It’s not like you get a talk in University and there’s no exams to take either.

What are your immediate plans for after this bootcamp?

I recently accepted a job offer which isn’t related to programming but I did have the intention to work as a Junior Developer. I definitely see myself using what I’ve learnt here though. For example - how to work effectively in a team, knowing how to assist others and project management skills.

Did you have any doubts about signing up to Ubiqum and how do you feel about them now?

I wasn’t sure if I’d be the right profile for this Coding School since I was starting from no knowledge at all. I saw that at the beginning of the course I was one of the slowest learners but bit by bit I got there. And in the end Ubiqum where the ones that admitted me.

Describe in a few words your Ubiqum experience

Enriching: I’ve learnt so many things
Effective: I’m an example of someone who from nothing has achieved things I never thought possible.
