Coder Factory Academy Graduate
Cofounder + Developer, Small Change Giving
After studying maths and physics at University of Sydney, and growing dissatisfied in a finance admin role, Sam turned to Coder Factory Academy to help him upskill in a fast-paced, hands-on environment. Since finishing his course, Sam has co-founded a startup called Small Change – a fundraising platform for charities that enables people to connect charity donation buttons to posts they want to share on Facebook. Here's what he has to say about his experience:
What did a coding bootcamp offer that a university did not?
I didn't know how to code after doing a whole science degree. Computer Science degrees are expensive and go for four years, and you learn a lot of material that is not necessary to be a web developer.
So, the best thing about coding bootcamps is you learn only what is relevant to getting a job when you come out of it. It's a lot quicker, it's a lot cheaper...those alone are great reasons why you'd want to do it.
How has learning to code changed your life?
I genuinely believe coding is intrinsically rewarding compared to other jobs. When you think of web developers or computer programmers, you don't think they're solving a human problem. But, we're building a platform that enables money to go to charities.
Not only that, you're connecting donate buttons to charities on really emotive content that's deeply human. The software we're building is about solving human problems, and I think only people who know how to code fully appreciate how human it is.
