How I became a Java Developer through Code College:

I worked for 9 years as an Administrator and always knew I wanted to do more, so I decided to follow my high school dream of becoming a Computer Programmer, I then started looking around for programming schools where I came across Code College. I then decided to do the Java Bootcamp at Code College because the price was fair and offered me exactly what I was looking for. I negotiated with my employer to take my accumulated leave on a one-week-per-month basis, matching the Java Bootcamp training schedule.

How did you manage to do the Bootcamp – did you have to resign your job at that time?

No, I had enough leave to take one week per month as the bootcamp is delivered on a “one week per month in the classroom”. The other 2/3 weeks are for assignments and you do not have to be at the campus physically then. This is the quickest way of doing it and not having to resign from your job.

Learning experience

My learning experience at Code College was very practical – almost like being on the job, which is a great way to learn programming and understanding all the technologies you will need. I was surrounded by positive like-minded people at Code College, all trying to head in the same direction. I had to make time on Sundays and weekday evenings for the assignments. I have really learned a lot in the 6 months now that I look back. Our facilitator, Arnold, guided us every step of the way – even after the Java Bootcamp.

Immediately after the Bootcamp in December 2017, I updated my CV and started applying for jobs online. The recruiters where impressed with my knowledge and understanding of the industry and in January 2018 I was made an offer by a company in the financial service industry as a Junior Java developer.

What kind of salary did you expect to get and did you get in the end?

To my surprise, my salary was matched – I was actually offered R500 p.m more 😉

.

Thank you to Arnold and Code College, this really was a life changing course!

Kind Regards,

Edwin
