Case Study

Harry Gordon

Engineering Student to Junior Developer at Capco

Makers was the best education I've had - it's the first time I've been engaged in what I'm doing.

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

Engineering student at Durham University

What made you want to start learning to code in the first place?

I got into it at university as part of my course. Started self learning afterward - a Makers alumni recommended the course, and so I signed up and it was awesome!

What did you find difficult during the course?

Balancing time on the weekends - it's fine during the week, but I was always so busy at the weekend so finding time for the challenges was difficult.

What happened during/after graduation and where are you job-wise?

I came and visited the careers team once a week. We had an office visit to Capco on the first day after graduation, and then I got an offer there the week after!

How has your life changed since graduation?

For the better - it has more direction. After university I didn't know what career I wanted. I'm glad I did it and chose this direction.

What do you say to people who say £8000 is expensive?

It's a fraction of the price of the education I've paid for in my life so far. It's a lot less. Makers was the best education I've had - it's the first time I've been engaged in what I'm doing.

What was your biggest worry before joining Makers Academy and how do you feel about it now?

A lot of stress during the precourse about being kicked out! I was really worried about that - maybe I wasn't good enough. But it's fine now.
