Code/IT may be just the boost you need to make a change.
Venturing into the tech world always scared me, but I’m so glad I finally decided to take the risk! I was a hairstylist for 10 years and while it was fulfilling for much of that time, I just began to feel stagnant in my own life and career.
The Code/IT program has allowed me to step back into a classroom with comfort and access new material with ease. Everyone at the Mill and Ivy Tech made the experience more than exceptional; I always felt welcome and encouraged.
I am very excited to utilize my new knowledge and hopefully continue my journey in the tech world, thanks to Code/IT Academy!
In July of 2020 I had been a freelance website developer for a long time, but I was relying on frameworks and tools I didn’t fully understand. When I saw the advertisement for the first cohort of Code School (now Code/IT), I thought it would be a great way to fill in some of my knowledge gaps.
I received way more than I expected. I brought in my commitment to the program and made time to thoroughly sprint through the material, boot-camp style. Before I’d even completed the training I was bidding more complex projects to my current customers, which ended up doubling my monthly income.
Shortly after I completed the program I coded a complex minimum viable website according to the startup’s exact specifications. I learned how to expand my skills, so even after the program was complete I kept learning. Equally as important, I connected to the community at Dimension Mill.
Now, I am a full-time member doing my own work from The Mill and offer my skills to startups and Mill members when time allows. My professional life is healthier than ever, and the turning point for me was bringing my motivation to the Code School environment at Dimension Mill.
Code/IT + my own motivation = personal satisfaction with a lifelong learning pathway
