Sara is one of our students in our hackerspace in Cairo, Egypt. Graduated in Computer Science, the 27-year-old girl decided to learn video game development at GOMYCODE.
Before joining GOMYCODE, I didn’t like programming
At first it seemed weird and difficult to me. You should know that I didn’t like programming very much, I found it a bit abstract. But once I got to the heart of the matter, my opinion changed dramatically. Now that I understand how it works, I love programming, especially because video games are still the most funny way to learn to become a developer.
I was surprised to see that the diploma and the level of study did not matter
The experience at GOMYCODE is perfect overall. Already, from the first telephone contact, I was surprised to see that the diploma and the level of study did not matter. I said to myself: 'is there a place like that in Egypt ?!' I couldn't believe it. So on the first day, I met my comrades, people from different backgrounds, with different stories. There were people with a very rich academic background and others who had dropped out of high school. There are different types of profiles, and that's fantastic, because you can learn something from everyone.
Thanks to GOMYCODE, I know that I will be among the pioneers in this field
Don't be afraid to make decisions to increase your skills, no matter how drastic it might sound. For example, I had nothing to do with the development of video games, I had never been interested in this before but I made this decision because I know that it is something in great demand in the world. Even in Egypt, it is not yet completely the case. But thanks to my training, I know that I will be among the pioneers in this field.
