Sai, Software Development Engineer at Amazon

For those of you who have been following my journey into software engineering, I am excited to share a little update. This process started 8 months ago, with me relearning how to write code in Java, followed by quitting my job 6 months ago and deploying a side project 4 months later.

I am thrilled to say that I am moving on to the next phase of my career change - I will be starting my career as a software engineer at Amazon in one week. This was the best outcome that I could have ever asked for, truly a dream come true, and it still feels kind of surreal, to be honest.

Via Sai’s Linkedin Account, March 2022

John, From Transport Management to Web Developer

Going from absolute zero, with no degree, no qualifications in IT, no experience at all, to being an employed developer within a matter of months. I am not from a major city, not from London, not from California, so it can be done, the opportunity is there.

Focus and make a plan, make the time to learn, but as well make sure to learn the correct ways, from the correct people. That's why I can't give Nelson and everyone from Amigoscode’s Facebook group enough credit because they not only got me started but made me continue to do it and to do it successfully.


Maja, From Intern to Java Engineer at Grid Dynamics

There are so many courses online that waste your time and just confuse you more. But, Nelson’s approach is different. I love his organized and meticulous style of teaching where he goes step-by-step over every topic and provides you with a lot of useful and real-world examples



In addition to all the knowledge, skills and applications you have built, at the end of the course, you will also be able to prove your efforts with a certificate issued by Amigoscode! Join thousands of others on LinkedIn who proudly display their achievements
