Simon had long been drawn to technology. Not being involved in it felt like something big in life was passing him by. Although he doesn’t intend to change his career in education, he has lots of ideas of what he’ll do with the digital skills he’s learning—and they just keep on coming.
His learning is already delivering much more than he could have dreamed. Motivated and inspired by his new found ability to build a website, create an app, develop a game and confidently code, he’s going deeper into Web Application Development as an outlet for his creativity. He’s already earned his first paid assignment. And he’s keen for more.
Web Application Development is for people wanting deeper knowledge and skills on web development and framework and those who want a formal recognition of their skills with an EPFL certification. Our learners come from diverse professions and backgrounds, each with their own ambitions and goals.
