Can you tell us why you wanted to become a Dev?
After high school, I worked for a few months as a trainee in a startup, helping with Html, Css, etc... I got confirmation that I loved Tech and wanted to make a living out of it. Since I didn't really want to go to university, I looked online for a short course that would help me quickly find a job. I discovered Le Wagon and went to a free workshop they gave at the Voisins coworking space in Geneva. I immediately liked their direct approach with applied workshops where I was able to code right away. And I realized that it was possible for me to learn how to develop in a very short time.
What did you think of Le Wagon's training?
What did you do after Le Wagon?
I didn't really take holidays, just a day or two to rest. And I quickly applied to dev jobs around Geneva. I had interviews and technical tests, not always successful, but I improved. I also noticed there were lot of offers in React, so I decided learn this technology. I took the online course on React from Le Wagon, which is free for the alumni. It was not very difficult for me to learn a new language, after the 5 languages I learned during the bootcamp. I already had the logic in mind. And I had the chance to be quickly accepted for a 3-month internship at Ketl, a startup in Geneva.
I just finished my internship and I learned a lot working everyday with the CTO. I want to thank him for that. I decided to follow up with freelance projects, it suits me better. I am currently working with several clients. For example, I’m developing a mobile application for a Fintech startup and a website for a medical office. I like the freelance way of working that allows me to combine training and delivering interesting projects. I can picture myself doing this for a few years and why not take advantage to travel at the same time.
