Case Study

Sarah Young

Academic to Junior Developer at Deloitte Digital

My time at Makers Academy was intellectually challenging, a roller coaster of joy, and one of the best decisions of my life.

What were you doing before joining Makers Academy?

Before Makers Academy I trained as a historian of gender, education and technology.

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

Coding is like craft-making, figuring out puzzles, even experimenting in the kitchen, activities I enjoy doing but would never have thought could be related to software engineering. It requires teamwork, imaginative thinking, and curiosity. It’s language- learning, problem-solving and communication all in one - I love it and because of that I got into coding.

What did you find difficult during the course?

I had days when I felt I didn’t have enough time to understand concepts and worries like I won’t be able to get a job, this was all put to bed as after graduation Makers helped me find a job.

How has your life changed since graduation?

Since graduation I’m happier, more confident, and financially secure. I feel like I’ve found the path I’ve always been looking for and now work as a Junior Developer at Deloitte Digital.

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

I had days when I felt I didn’t have enough time to understand concepts and worries like I won’t be able to get a job, this was all put to bed as after graduation Makers helped me find a job. Since graduation I’m happier, more confident, and financially secure. I feel like I’ve found the path I’ve always been looking for
