After graduating with a degree in Commerce and having worked in the financial industry for over two years, one fine morning I surprised my manager with my intention of leaving the bank. I still remember the anxiety of quitting a full-time job, to pursue a completely different career. But I had already made up my mind, I had signed up for the Immersive Web-dev course at BrainStation!
Working at the Bank, I quickly realized the ever growing importance of technology. How it was changing the face of banking for not just the clients but also those working at the Bank. There was a growing gap between the needs of the business department at the bank and the solutions offered by the IT department. Banking wasn’t the only industry being impacted by technology. We are surrounded with apps that have changed the way we live on a day-to-day basis. I wanted to be a part of this change happening around us and in the years to come!
I spent my summer learning to code at BrainStation. I learned to build my own websites from scratch, and build cool projects like a Twitter clone. I wanted to be able to utilize these coding skills I had gathered, along with my strong business background and put them to work together.
Now that I have a technical background with the BrainStation Immersive course, I would like to compliment it with the Product Management course, which would allow me to take an idea from inception and bring it to life!
