Eva completed our Full-Stack Web Development Program in 2020 and is now a web developer.
Hi Eva! Talk us through what inspired you to make a career change into web development?
I dipped into the world of tech during my first job as a content editor. I was captivated by how the developers on our team combined two worlds; intellectual work, and crafting useful components. After a few years of working in the cultural sector, I took advantage of my second parental leave to explore new career paths. Learning to code was the best decision I could’ve made. When working on a project, I love turning ideas into reality by solving problems.
What did you enjoy most about the Full-Stack Web Development Program?
It was a conscious decision to take an online web development course, so I enjoyed the flexibility. I also was very happy with the structure and curriculum of the program. It focuses on in-demand languages, frameworks, and tools that made me feel prepared for the job market.
With regards to your new career, what are your hopes for the future?
I hope to find an entry position in a company that provides support and mentoring for junior developers to improve my skills and learn from others. Further into the future, I hope to become a successful senior developer and mentor others who are making their first steps into the world of tech.
Tell us about this portfolio project.
With this Meetup-App project, I got to grips with two essential skills that are required in practically every web development job: setting up serverless functions and ensuring high-quality code by following the test-driven development approach.
