What led you to enroll in Ironhack?
I was enrolled in an engineering program at university, but ended up dropping out pretty quickly because I didn’t really enjoy it. After that, I enrolled in what I believe is called a ‘vocational degree’ in other parts of the world: it’s like a three-year degree for programming. I was doing pretty well but, again, I didn’t really enjoy it. However, whilst there, I met some people who pointed me towards Ironhack.
I looked at the website and thought: “Well, this looks cool! This looks more like my type of thing: fast, hands-on and just better overall”. So I applied to the Web Development Bootcamp, dropped out of the other school, and eventually enrolled with Ironhack.
Did you have any concerns before starting the course?
Not really; I was really looking forward to it. It looked really promising, and I’m the type of guy who’s never afraid to try new things (I moved to Canada by myself for a year when I was just 16). So, when it came to Ironhack, it was just a case of: “this seems like my thing, I should just go for it!”
