CCYA itself was amazing...

"After CCYA I've went on to Napier university to study Software Engineering (MEng), and I have continued to work at a youth club, although currently I'm looking out for jobs inside kids coding clubs since I now have experience with both code and working with children.

CCYA itself was amazing, and I'm honestly wishing university taught like that, it just is the best way for me to learn."

Join our bootcamp and tap into the future power of code.
