We had the opportunity to sit down with Austin Coding Academy alumnus, Seth, and talk about his coding journey. He is a User Experience Developer at Indeed! He shared some insider tips and tricks for prospective and current students.

  1. Where are you from?

    Austin, born and raised.

  2. What is your current job title?

    I am a User Experience Developer at Indeed.

  3. What were you doing before you signed up for ACA?

    I worked in Graphic Design. That is actually what sparked my interest in coding. I sat near web developers and became curious about what they did.

  4. How did you hear about ACA?


  5. What inspired you to take the leap from graphic design to web development?

    I wanted to be involved in every process of a project. I was already proficient in HTML and CSS, so I wanted to take it a step further and dive into JavaScript.

  6. What is the best thing about coding?

    Code is a big puzzle to solve and I love problem solving.

  7. What is the best perk?

    I feel like I am finally getting paid my worth.

  8. What advice do you have to prospective and/or current ACA students?

    Don’t give up! I didn’t get a job immediately after graduation, so I spent that time sharpening my skills and networking. Make friends in the field - networking is so important!
