Yamin Hakizimana, Software Developer, VYNYL
After coming to America In 2014, Yamin worked at a meatpacking plant, and then as a landscaper. He needed a better job and wanted to return to school. A friend introduced him to the Coding Dojo Boise campus and encouraged him to apply. Yamin feared his lack of computer skills would hold him back as he had never even typed on a computer before. Although the first couple of weeks were a struggle, Yamin’s dedication started paying off – as his understanding grew, so did his confidence and problem-solving skills. Only three weeks after graduating, he received three job offers in the tech industry.

Shannon was far from computer savvy, but she was determined to find a way to provide for her children. She decided to enroll at Coding Dojo. Shannon grasped the individual concepts, but estimated the coursework took her 50% longer to complete than her peers, but she still made it through. After graduation, she applied for jobs and soon had a job with a 6-figure salary at a Bellevue-based software company.
