Why did you choose Codetrain.

After university, during national service, Excel was the tool I was best at. the more I learnt its functionalities the easier daily tasks at work became. At one point I was writing very complex functions to perform tasks in excel. I liked loved excel work way more than I loved my job itself. I figured perhaps software development is something I should try. I procrastinated for a while but I eventually signed up to Codetrain to commence a career in software development.

How has the experience been so far?

My experience at Codetrain even though quite short was very interesting. There was never a dull moment and the time has gone by so fast! There were difficult topics but by the following week, the same topic became somehow basic to us.

What’s your dream?

My dream is to help build software solutions for the future. Especially in Finance, Healthcare and Transport. I believe there must be more efficient ways to manage our finances, save lives and move from one location to another.I’m currently opening myself up for mentorship and learning new ways of doing the things I do.

What’s your favourite thing about Codetrain?
