" What I like the most about web development is its magical side. You can do extraordinary things using very few lines of code. "


Entrepreneur and project manager at Symetris, Julien Pauss had a technical need to develop new features on his website : he needed to learn to code.

As an entrepreneur, his expectations were also to acquire some soft skills, to be able to develop a digital product, to work in a team, and how to make it work well in the digital world.

" Le Wagon has fully met my expectations. It’s an entirely new experience in which within two months, you learn something totally new and meet lots of new people. It’s really a timeless experience that enables you to learn new things. "

He emphasizes the teaching methods and the exchanges with the teachers.

" They are people who are not from the digital world and who are able to teach you how to code in a very simple way. "

He completes: " What I like most about my position as a project manager is that it is a position that allows me to combine my expertise — that I have been able to acquire these last two years as a developer — with my academic background in management and, therefore, it is really the perfect job for me. "

The code injection that changed Rui's life

I studied computer systems in university, but by the age of 37, I had not done much in the area. For ten years, I worked in an insurance company, Império Bonança, as an automobile expert. What made me work there for so long was the flexibility the job allowed. But in 2014, I felt many changes in the company and in the business itself, so I started looking for other options.

BCG to bootcamp - always chasing the learning zone

My philosophy is to always be learning by putting myself in new, scary situations. I think this initially led me to jump from mechanical engineering to the business world at Boston Consulting Group. It certainly played a part in me deciding to learn to code at Le Wagon and take on the role of tech lead and co-founder at Stotles. It has been a wild ride, and the only thing I know for sure is that the ride is just getting started.
