When Traditional Education Was Not Enough Codi Came In!

I am Khaled El-Ali, a Codi T02 graduate. In my journey through becoming a Web Developer, I went through a lot. Here's my story. 📖

I studied Information Technology at a Technical Institute and graduated in 2019. 👨🏻‍🎓 I later completed a 2-month internship in a Tech company.

So far so good? Not really, 🙁 I was very disappointed to discover that what I learned was not enough to land me a good job. The knowledge I had was outdated and far from today's market needs!

I went on with my life and worked as an accountant, a restaurant supervisor and tried a few other things. But one thing has always been on my mind: Web Development. 🙏🏻

One day, my friend from Codi T01 cohort introduced me to the organisation. I was motivated again, 🚀 I applied and got accepted; this was a turning point in my life!

My experience at Codi was unforgettable. The programme is rich in technical knowledge and life skills. I learned so much not only from my incredible mentors,💡but also from my peers. We exchanged knowledge and helped each other in group projects. 🤝🏻 We spent a lot of time together that we became one big family. 💖

Codi gave me the confidence and the right set of skills to apply for new jobs, and indeed, I got hired one month before graduation as a Full-Stack Web Developer at "Ring n Bring", a Dubai-based company (remote work). 👨🏻‍💻

I truly believe that Codi's experience on my CV helped me land this amazing job. ⭐️

At last, never lose hope in pursuing your passion. Search for coding bootcamps like Codi to learn the latest in-demand technologies that you don't learn through traditional education. 👍🏻
