Case Study

Jack Oddy

Restaurant supervisor to Junior Developer at ANDigital

It's been super intense and good times, bad times, it's been high pressure but I've also met people I think are going to be good friends for a long time.

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

I was working as a restaurant supervisor in a gastro pub.

How did you come across Makers Academy and what made you decide to apply?

I came across a blog post about coding bootcamps, I wanted to do something different and I liked the community vibe of Makers Academy.

How has your life changed since learning to code?

I've become a lot more ambitious.

What advice would you give to people thinking of changing career?

I don't think you can teach anyone to code but it's not as unapproachable as you think. If you want to make stuff and work with cool people then read into it a bit more. I would recommend it but I think you need to have a certain aptitude.

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

I agree with them but you could spend more on a Computer Science degree and come out less employable than at Makers Academy. It may not be perfect but it was perfect for me.

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

I was worried I was not good enough and now it's flipped. My concern has now been if a company is good enough for me when I was interviewing for them.

Sum up your Makers Academy experience

It's been super intense with good times and bad times. It's been high pressure, but I've also met people who I think are going to be good friends for a long time.
