Can you talk a little bit about who you are and what your work has been until now?

I am Osegbemoh Dania, from Lagos, Nigeria. I worked as a Network Infrastructure Manager for 9 years with an internet service provider & a chain of pharmaceutical retail stores across Nigeria before my journey to Craft Academy.

During the spring of 2017, you participated in the Craft Academy bootcamp. What made you decide to learn to code?

I got tired of my networking job and needed a more challenging career path so I decided to try my hands on web app development by launching my own fashion e-commerce store. I had limited resources outsourcing the web app to a company or freelancer so I developed the website myself using a ready made framework called Magento. I got my e-commerce platform up & running but was unable to develop new features into the platform. This became a struggle for me and had to finally outsource to a freelancer. The desire to develop my own software product sparked my interest in coding. I explored several platforms like EDX, Coursera & Udemy but wasn’t learning fast due to my busy schedule at work and also got distracted trying to learn several programming frameworks at once. I had to resign from my job as a Network Manager to pursue a structured training program in a coding bootcamp.

What would you say was the most important result of your time with Craft Academy?

The confidence in developing web applications using some of the best practices like test driven & behavioral driven development and the ease of learning new programming languages & development framework.

What would you say was the most challenging part of the training model at Craft Academy?

Working on new projects weekly with very tight deadlines.

What advice would you give someone who is thinking about enrolling in the bootcamp?

Don’t hesitate, it’s a great step to learning the most important fundamentals in coding. A bootcamp will help keep you focused, prevent the noise of too many software development frameworks out there and would also provide very good hands-on experience.You also get guidance from professionals who help review your coding style and also guide your thought process when writing code.
