Before enrolling in Codeup, Tarek worked as an IT professional. Although Tarek had a passion for fixing computers as a kid, he eventually felt that his career was no longer giving him the professional growth and direction he hoped for. After much searching, he finally found a way to transition into programming at Codeup.
As a student at Codeup, Tarek took advantage of project-based coursework and one-on-one learning opportunities with instructors. Codeup helped demystify the field of technology for Tarek, giving him a chance to delve deep into topics, test out real world applications of coding, and retrain his brain to think like a programmer.
