I worked in Architecture for the last 10 years, and finally decided to make the switch. I want to be able to use skills which i’ve gained in the past to help my future career in coding. Coding provides in my opinion clear advantages:

  • Continually learn new marketable skills
  • Ability to work remotely
  • Increase income over time
  • Ability to develop ideas from beginning to end
  • Work in a progressive environment with forward thinking people
  • Work out that all important Brain muscle
