Omar Badawy - Software Engineering Student

After joining CODE I decided to really focus on learning programing in detail with all its facets and different variations of the field. In the process of doing so, I've met some really inspiring individuals who've kept pushing me to strive higher and taught me very valuable lessons. Now I am the Co-Founder and CTO of Mytreety, a sustainable marketplace with 11 employees and 50 business partners. Crazy to think how quickly things have switched over the course of a few years.


Yutaro Koyama - Software Engineering Student

I used to be a B2B salesperson in Asia and was selling mechanical components. Although it was a great experience, I was often frustrated that the sales result depended on the customer's production plan rather than how much effort I put in. This made me want to do software engineering in which I can directly see the relation between my effort and the outcome.

Project Based Learning at CODE helped me a lot to have practical team working experience which "traditional" universities would not teach. In the last semester, I made an AI to detect bird species from their sound. Besides that, I am also working as a Full Stack Engineer and building shipment tracking systems. I'm excited to solve more and harder problems for the rest of my CODE life!


Thais Correia - Interaction Design Student

I was in a traditional university, studying a completely different major. But I wanted to change my career and also didn’t want to go to another traditional university. Then I found CODE which offers a lot of flexibility and gives me freedom to choose whatever career path I want so that’s why I came to CODE.
