It’s a common stigma: software development isn’t creative. Some may even call it boring. But as a former video producer and content creator — go on, look up my Brazilian YouTube channel — I’m here to bust that stereotype.
In fact, one of the main reasons I pivoted to software development is because of how creative it is. Solving technical problems in a unique way? Creative. Building an inventive user interface? Creative. Designing a standout website (or app) that truly reflects a business? I bet you can guess what word I’d use.
These are just some of the elements that convinced me to change careers, which is why, once I finished a weekend workshop and front-end development-focused bootcamp, I launched into Techtonic’s Accelerated Apprenticeship.
The best part about my creative tendencies: they come with an inherent adaptability that’s ideal for full stack development. Not only can I build a jaw-dropping website with an empathetic UI/UX design, but I can also quickly troubleshoot technical issues, create comprehensive test suites, and effectively collaborate to anticipate a client's exact needs.
That flexibility — and production-level experience on both front- and back-end development — also makes for a smooth transition to your remote or in-office tech team. Because when a front-end team makes a request (or vice versa), I understand why they need it. The end result: collaborative process, efficient execution, and outstanding deliverables.
Techtonic's Software Development Apprenticeship Program was exactly what I needed to help transition my career and change my life. If you want to do the same, here's everything you need to know about becoming an Apprentice — and the low-down on how to apply.
