Fullstack webdevelopment

"I always had an interest in tech, but other than my CU2 account I did not have any experience in coding whatsoever when I started at BSSA. Now I think working on the back-end is most fun. It sounds simple but it takes solid coding skills. It was really exciting to be able to do that. Overall I think this is a great career change for me to pursue!"



Fullstack webdevelopment

"The internet has lots to offer regarding learning how to code yourself. I tried and failed a lot. Practicing every day I reached a certain skill level in about a month. After that, I didn’t think I could improve any more by myself. Then I stumbled upon the BSSA. I loved coding there! Honestly, I can’t stop doing it. Almost daily you need to hand in an assignments, which is good because it keeps you sharp and helped me to learn really fast."



Fullstack webdevelopment

"I wanted a new challenge, something finicky, something I had to struggle for. I wanted to learn a hard skill and it needed to be a skill that gave me some freedom, because I have a lot of ambitions. Learning to code at BSSA is quite intense, but a lot of fun! It is a community kind of feel, I feel a lot of camaraderies. And I rediscovered an old passion of me which is math. It’s just a lot of fun to have these problems and solve them – like coding! I think a lot of people would like this."



Fullstack webdevelopment

“BSSA was a great environment to improve my programming skills and their network was really useful to find a great job where I could continue to develop myself. A lot of people try to figure coding out by themselves, but it goes so much faster in a classroom with classmates who are all focussed to become great coders."
