What were you doing before Ubiqum?

I had just finished my studies in hotel management but it wasn’t for me and so I decided to focus on business instead.

What motivated you to start learning how to code?

Programming is something that always appealed to me. I had started a Mobile Application development course, but I realized quickly it wouldn’t be enough to become a developer. After receiving more information about the Ubiqum programme, I saw it was focused on the necessities of the real world and that it could improve my job opportunities.

How did you find us & why did you decide to sign up?

I saw the Ubiqum Programme through a Facebook ad. I realized that it was something I could use to really improve my CV and it served to give me experience in projects that simulate real work scenarios.

What did you find difficult during the course?

At the beginning it did take me a while to adapt to the “learning by doing” methodology, which is a different way of learning from the normal classes. I really didn’t know how to code before joining. In the course there are resources and a plan of attack, but in the end, you have to find a way to move the project forward by yourself.

What have you gained from the course? Does it work?

If you had me asked the first day I would have said that it was very difficult to learn to code, but later in the course you do feel you can do it as long as you’re conscious you’ll need to put the hard yards in.

Why would you recommend Ubiqum?

Typically to graduate in a University or Academy takes four years. They do teach you many things, but if someone wants to become a programmer this is a much faster and effective way to get there.

What are your plans when you finish the bootcamp?

Originally the plan was to become a FrontEnd developer, but now I am considering starting my own business. I have to say, during this bootcamp you’re taught that if you feel motivated enough and have a goal you can reach it.
Now I have the skills required not only to start a job in a tech company, but also to start developing my own project.

What advice do you have for someone who’s thinking about changing their career?

If you don’t want to be 4 years in an university, then this course is the ideal to you get the knowledge that will help you to enter in the world of programming in less than one year. If, in the end of the day, you realize that you don’t want to be programmer, this course helps you develop many other important skills for working life.

Did you have any doubts before starting Ubiqum? How do you feel about it now?

In the beginning I wasn’t sure which course to select, but because of the flexible course dates and financial package, I decided to choose Ubiqum from the other code academies.

Describe your experience at Ubiqum.

If I have to describe the biggest benefit this course offered me, it would be mainly related to the great freedom to put in practice the knowledge acquired. My experience in Ubiqum has been very enriching. It helped me prove that if you follow a goal with determination and persistence, you can achieve a lot.
