Home - Coding - Taking Your Career to the NEXT Step – Husni’s Story

The only coding experience I’d had was as a teaching assistant for an undergraduate introduction to Java course during university. But I stopped coding completely after landing my first job.

After spending a decade working in the project management arena I knew that I wanted the chance to jump back onto the tech wagon. When my company announced they wanted to send some of their employees to NEXT to learn web development, I jumped at the chance.

It ended up being the breath of fresh air that I needed.

When I left NEXT and started my new developer role, I could basically hit the ground running with everything that I’d learnt from the bootcamp. I’m currently doing a lot of front-end development, using JavaScript and ReactJS and I’ve recently picked up Vue.js as well. I’m also doing some back-end using Python for data-processing for the current project that I’m working on.

The syllabus taught at NEXT was extremely relevant for current job requirements, what with JavaScript and Python being very in-demand languages. The mini-projects also provided many examples of real-life modern web apps, so architecture-wise I gained a new level of understanding and appreciation on how to build these systems and apps myself. I also really enjoyed doing the final group project as it taught me how to work in a team and, most importantly how to use Git properly.

The mentors also did an awesome job of providing the necessary guidance throughout. They were hands-on but never gave you more than you needed, so that stimulated a lot of growth in me as a developer.

And I definitely appreciate my cohort as a whole; I felt a real sense of camaraderie being amongst an outstanding bunch of geeks.

For 10 weeks, NEXT made me feel right at home.
