Case Study

Marcus Bullock

Business Consultant to Software Developer at Trayport

My Makers Academy experience was fantastic and exhilarating and it's great to be young again!

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

I was working as a business consultant.

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

There was a cross over in cyber security and I had potential to learn more at a programming job within the company.

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

Internet searches. The reviews were very encouraging and the success rate in getting people jobs.

What did you find difficult during the course?

I found AngularJS very difficult and the idea of test driven development.

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

I was hired after speaking to a company at the careers fair. It was the enthusiasm that I displayed which showed them I really wanted the job.

How has your life changed since graduation?

I feel very happy and proud of myself of completing this rigorous course and I look forward to a new career in an exciting sector.

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

Do it. It was the best choice I ever made. Once you get over the fear, you will realise what a great idea it was.

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

There is never too much money to invest in yourself and your future.

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

I was worried I won't get a job or be a great coder but now I have a job and I'm a great coder.

Sum up your Makers Academy experience

Fantastic! Exhilarating and it's great to be young again!
