Who made it so far?
Dorin Dumitrascuta become Junior Web Developer
After a first touch with the gaming industry, getting a taste for game development, user experience and design, I got attracted more and more by front-end development.
Having firm grasp of Digital Marketing under my belt, I wanted to take my skills to the next level and also be able to code on my own, share ideas with others and overall, be a better asset in multi-disciplinary teams.
With a life ahead of constant learning, I as a student realize now that the shortcut is hard work.
Laurentiu Tanase is an amzing Expert Web Developer
CodeTap is awesome! It tought me how to contribute to a project as team member and how to be a better programmer.
Marian Zburlea is an amzing Expert Web Developer
CodeTap is a life changer! I started to learn as far as I remember at the age of 4 and I didn't stop to this day. I learn new things every day and I teach at CodeTap what I do on a daily basis myself. In other words, I'm a students just like you, further down the road and I experience the same market, I attend the same interviews, I talk to the same clients and I enjoy the same new technologies.
Carol Enache became a Mid Web Developer
I am coming from a hospitality background and was able to change my career thanks to CodeTap.
I had no prior computer programming experience but with Marian's mentorship I had penetrated an industry that I would not even dreamed of before.
By following CodeTap’s curriculum I was learning to code while I was already setting my self up for interviews and building an impressive portfolio using the latest techniques.
CodeTap is filtering the information and narrows down the focus to what is the most relevant in the market, turning you into a desired candidate in a very short time.
After only a few months, I started receiving loads of phone calls. I am currently at my second job and increased my salary with 50%. I highly recommend CodeTap, it will change your path for the best, either if you want to become a Web Developer or just to improve your skills.
Tom Williams is an amzing Senior Web Developer
Codetap is completely different to any online course or training I've ever seen. It's intensive, you will be thrown in at the deep end, but at the end of it you'll know the practical, effective techniques for web development for the year 2019.
But more than that, it's exposed me to a community of developers that have an amazing passion for excellence. It's a community where everyone gives their time and expertise to help each other learn and grow, no questions asked.
Răzvan Pușcașu became a Junior Web Developer
After 2 years of maritime navigation around Europe, one day, I've decided I need a career change. That's when CodeTap showed up on my Facebook page. Ever since day 0, I was able to build and to understand how websites work, even though I had no knowledge before I started. Managed to get my first job on the first interview I had, after only 1 month and 17 days of hardcore coding for a minimum of 6 hours per day. So, I'm challenging you to break my record ! 😀
Cate Zee became a Web Developer - Freelancer
I wanted to learn about coding and web development because I was interested in developing skills in technology for my future. Looking for a simple coding course, I came across CodeTap and Marian and afterwards I started on the first playlist when I was eleven years old.
Since I joined CodeTap, I've learned how to build websites and gain an understanding of different coding languages.
Whenever I had a problem or a question, I asked Marian and the CodeTap group and they were ready to help me.
I'm really keen to master more programming languages with Marian and the group. They're really understanding and knowledgeable.
CodeTap is amazing!
Valentina Vanu became a Web Developer - Freelancer
I started with zero knowledge and I had no idea what building a website implies until I met codetap. Marian helped me understand the process, thought me about each and every programming language or programs are needed in order to build a website. The most important thing I learned was the mind set while learning and working at the same time, as I had to find a logic behind the code. Any goal can be accomplished if you put enough effort into it!
Daniel Varvara became a Web Developer
I didn't even know what a website was outside the browser and I start building my first website on day ONE. Marian has been a great teacher and kept in focus always the most important lessons to build a robust knowledge tree in a fast and efficient way. You will find him picking you up from the corn fields as soon as you drift away from what's important. Another very important aspect is that coding with CodeTap has equipped me with tricks only acquired trough over 20 years of hard work and best practice coding (you'll soon know what 'best practice' means) and experience that Marian has managed to compress into proper and easily digestible gems. This has launched me far ahead of my competition. Once my resume website was finished, Marian narrowed down the essentials of how to deal with an interview and build confidence by preparing ahead. Also making sure I was visible to employers on all major job platforms. Once launched on the job market my phone didn't stop ringing. Even today I'm still being called at least 5 times a day and all my job platforms accounts are shut.
I've landed my first 2 face-2-face interviews in the first 3 weeks from the launch. I failed the first one but landed my first job offer in the second interview.
I now work at Bookatable and also made partner in a Tech Startup that will revolutionize the world.
So, yeah. If you code, you better CodeTap!
Flavius Bohaciuc became a Web Developer
Still in draft
Istvan Acs became a Junior Web Developer
Vlasie Dragoș became a Junior Web Developer
Hi, my name is Dragoș Vlasie, I am a self-taught junior web developer, currently working in London.
I tried and failed many times and I was actually thinking of giving up on this dream. But then I saw some posts from Marian on freecodecamp, I thought he was far too optimistic at first and didn't believe that it could be as simple as he was saying, but as time went by I got the courage to sent him a message and ask for help.
After that, Marian was incredibly helpful and very nice he helped me a lot, he is great mentor taught me so much and showed me that I shouldn't be scared to dream big.
Under his guidance, I managed to learn about node, pug and most importantly how a developer should think and what he should be prepared in especialy for the job market.
After 2 months I started applying for jobs. I was surprised that I got so many phone calls from recruiters then I got to go to a few interviews and then, finaly got a job.
I definetly owe a lot to Marian and after all this I think my only regret is, that I dint asked for help sooner.
Marco Pietro Caramaschi became a Junior Web Developer
Beware: all you can find here is real awesomeness! This guy is amazing, he's drove by a real passion for what he does and most importantly he is always ready to help and give you good hints, advices and tutorials.
I couldn't be more grateful to have find this page and have met him in person.
If you want to be a great web developer, codetap is the answer! Thank you Marian!
Dumitru Timotei will become Junior Web Developer
Allright, so I'm Timotei and I'm gonna share with you my journey so far to become a Web Developer.
Then I found an advert on a social network from CodeTap and amazed me the way of courses was structured and the aproach towards students. So I followed the step by step courses and found it so easy to grasp on. It is not only about the way courses are structured it is the way Marian explain them that motivates me to think I can. Compare to other corses I saw where they explain things to a low level of understanding for beginers and makes me feel like I can't learn programming that or that it is not for me.
So this is it so far, further more hope you'll see me soon on 'Who Made It So Far' section and I wish a warm wellcome to those who wanna join CodeTap.
Robert Alexandru will become Junior Web Developer
I came to London 3+ years ago and my first job was as a bike driver at Domino’s Pizza. After the first year I’ve been selected the best driver of the year and I was earning more money than an Area Manager, so after the second year I got bored because I couldn’t upgrade myself more in that company, so I left the job for Deliveroo.
I was working with my friend Gabriel and he found Marian on Facebook. I was so excited when I saw the videos with him and with the students who got the job.
So I said to give it a try. I’m not losing nothing. In my free time I was coding and I loved it so much.
Since day 1 I started to build my own website. I watched almost all the videos of CodeTap on YouTube. I got a strong understanding with HTML5 and CSS3 and now I started to apply for jobs, I’ve already had 2 interviews and I can say that it's an awesome feeling and I get more confident day by day.
I trully love Coding!
Iulian Schifirnet will become Junior Web Developer
My name is Julian and I'm 15 years old. I'm passionate about programming especially about the web.
It was a boring day and I was losing time doing something for myself or my future. Until ... I found a video of Marian about how a student of his has hired himself in 3 months as a web developer. The video lightened my mind and opened the way to a future where I wanted to be!
I started to work hard every day (even now) for 5 hours a day and I managed to master 14 technologies I never knew about. Marian and his community were like an angel, and every time I knew something it's wrong I was asking, and these benevolent people always answered me!
The principle that I guess is like that "Targets to the moon. Even if you do not, at least you will be among the stars."
Cătălin Sandru will become Junior Web Developer
It started about one year ago. I was trying to improve myself to get out of the jobs that where not improving me. I started to do some tutorials on codecademy, but it was not that serious. Then I saw a live coding show of CodeTap on Facebook that got my attention. I have hesitated a looooong time to contact Marian (I am a bit shy), but after that I took coding in a more serious manner.
I have created small simple webpages, learned and still learning how PUG Starter works; how to deal with errors etc. I've also learned some coding sintax, that is very important in web build; to refractor the code so I will not repeat myself... and many other things still to come to my knowledge.
In the last few years I have realised that coding is the "new" thing. The reason I have started coding is that I want to have some income, not a high one. I also want to have the independence to work form any part of the world and not form a 9 to 5 in an office.
The help of CodeTap has reached millions in a BIG or Small way, directly or indirectly. As everyone is different so are the paths we take.
Employee in I.T.
To be an employee in the Internet Technology is the most common opportunity taken.
- it's easy to understand and relate to as most people do it
- it's accessible as it's the most offered on the market by numbers
- it's one of the most well paid job you can have
- having a degree is optional - most employers don't ask for one as they look for people that can do or are able to figure things our more than people that look good on paper
- it is one of the quickest to start bring revenue in the short term and most of the time is quite steady
- Although it starts bringing money in quickly and is a top paid job that will bring a smile on your face it also has the lowest potential.
- All the other opportunities need to be persued for the long run and usually bring in unexpected and unbelievable results.
- The safe way would be to get employed in a job while investing time in one of the other opportunities
From what I know this is the second most common opportunity.
- It's very similar to being an employee in what you do with the exception that you are your own boss.
- Most of the time you take small to medium projects and aim to deliver them to the agreed deadline.
- I would say most freelancers enjoy the freedom of having their own schedule
- You will be earning a bit less than as an employee, usually because you lack skills in business development and marketing
- There is additional stress to always be hunting for clients
- There is some paperwork to be done here and there
This is one for the bold and the PRO
- It allows you to gain lots of experience
- You can live the life of a little star
- You can sustain your own ideas and start-up your own business
- It's only for the bold ones that aren't afraid to do calculated risks
- You might get called in a meeting only to let you know that in 1 or 2 weeks the deal is off, usually when projects get restructured. Contractors go first before employees
- Usually it's aimed for professionals or seniors, but this is not a rule as there is room for exceptions
- Usually you get called to fix problems in a timely matter and ocasionally employees might not be as friendly as expected, so a bit of stress or more might be part of the job
Own a business or become an influencer
The next level up from Contractor
- You can achieve a lot in a short time
- You can create movements, be part of great things and why not, write history
- It's going to be exciting and amazing for a long time
- You can live the life of a super star
- You can sustain your own ideas and start-up more of your own business
- It's only for the bold ones that aren't afraid to do calculated risks
- You might fail big time
- You might fail multiple times until you get it right
- The learning curve is quite high
- Stress will be your friend and your enemy at the same time
