Congratulations on your new job! Where will you be working?

I’ve been hired by a consultancy called Everis. What I like about this company is this upward progression that they offer to Junior Developers, in that they continue to train you.

What were you doing before you came to Ubiqum?

I was working in a laboratory at a clinic in Uruguay, conducting screenings and analysis. As my father is an Engineer and works in programming, as does my brother, I was exposed to this world and it quickly grabbed my attention. When a Programmer came to the laboratory to install a new operating system, I was very involved in the process and I realised how much I liked it. The IT sector is constantly advancing, there’s no limit, and this is very motivating.

What was your main concern before starting?

I had many because I was about to start something completely from scratch and, though I had read about the methodology, I didn’t know exactly what to expect. I didn’t know if I would be able to learn in this way but looking back now, having found a job, of course it was possible.

Why did Ubiqum stand out as the best choice?

Ubiqum Code Academy was recommend to me by someone I know, who has a great amount of experience in the IT sector. As I completely trust his judgement I didn’t feel I needed to look around at other courses.

Do you think our Learn by Doing methodology has been effective?
.

I love it! I think it brings out the best in everyone. As we’re all used to a completely different learning style and educational logic, it takes a bit of time to get used to. You have to learn to learn by yourself and you become an expert at searching on Google. Of course, the help from the mentors is indispensable. This practical way of learning has a way of recording what you experience on the brain, creating a much deeper, long-lasting knowledge-base.

Why would you recommend Ubiqum?

I’d recommend it not only for the methodology and the curriculum but also for the positive environment - I love it. You feel at home here, as much with the mentors as with the other students. As I come from abroad, this has been great.
