Decode Your Power The story of Patryk

Paulina Ołtusek by Paulina

“I wanted to learn not only the language, but truly understand the programming mechanisms, know the good practices, trends and learn how to start a new life in an industry as dynamic as IT. “

I had an idea to help people.

I started studying Mechanical Engineering, since there are many work environments that pose a threat to human health. I wanted to program machines that would enable safe work.

After several years I was working as a driver in Warsaw. It was a hard physical job, non-standard work hours, six days a week. Again, I began to think about my future and the possibilities of using my skills.

I started learning C programming language.

While I was studying, I started learning C programming language, which I enjoyed and saw my future in this field. My dream was to program automation systems.

First, I was searching for various phrases like ‘how to learn programming’. In fact, I was already determined to learn, I just needed to choose the right place and technologies. I knew that investing in myself was always the best investment, so I did not hesitate and chose the PHP course at Coders Lab.

The course was one of the most intense periods in my life.

At the very beginning of the course I was worried that this material is just too much. More than once I asked myself if I really could do it.

I did not give up looking for a solution to a given problem, doing my homework or writing a weekend project. In the following weeks, I was happy that I could finish something faster and tried to explain it to others.

Throughout the course, we could count on great support from our lecturers. I liked the slogan ‘We will teach you how to program’, because I wanted to learn not only the language, but truly understand the programming mechanisms, know the good practices, trends and learn how to start a new life in an industry as dynamic as IT.

I am currently working as a PHP developer and Scrum Master

The recruitment process was very fast – I got my first job in 1.5 months after completing the course.

I currently work in the Absolvent Group as PHP developer and Scrum Master. There was a moment when 10 Coders Lab graduates worked in my company.

Now I see that Coders Lab gave me a fishing rod and showed me how to use it. And that’s exactly what I was looking for.
