« Not being afraid to follow your intuition, being able to change your life when you are not satisfied with it and always follow your gut, is what I learned. You’re gonna be happier in the end. »

Stephanie Savoie is a backend developer at Surmesur. After working for three big corporations as a mechanical engineer, she felt she needed a change in her life.

« I didn’t like their ways and felt a bit like I was trapped. Learning how to code seemed like the kind of perfect opportunity and it was well timed. »

At Le Wagon, she enjoyed the most the two week project - the last weeks of the bootcamp - while working with a group of three or four people.

« It’s really a time where you put everything you learn together. You make an an amazing project and that experience was really valuable and something I bring with me every day to my job. »

What I like the most about my new lifestyle is the fact that I can work from anywhere: a coworking space, at home or by the beach!
