After having pursued a scientific career path and then training in digital technology, Adel decided to broaden his skills with a no-code training!
From science to art to no code: a look back at Adel's journey
Hi, Adel! Can you introduce yourself in just a few words? What experiences did you have before you joined Wild Code School?
My name is Adel, I'm 22 years old, and I'm very interested in science and art! I studied science for the most part, but I'm also very passionate about art: I write, read, draw, and play music.
Why did you decide to move into the digital industry after an artistic career?
My career path is quite short so far. I obtained my scientific baccalaureate (high-school degree) and continued with a degree in sciences, then another in art. As for my professional experience, I worked at the CHRU (regional university hospital) of Lille, and after that I had the opportunity to initiate myself to computer science.
Right now, you're in the no-code training in Roubaix (France). Can you tell us about your reorientation towards this training after the shorter training in web development?
Being really curious, I like to explore a bit of everything. My interests are very broad, ranging from art to science. I've known computers all my life—whether it's been spending hours on the desktop or the laptop... I was advised to learn about computers when I was working at CHRU to see if I would like it—which of course I did—so I continued exploring and learning.
Starting in December 2020, I looked for computer training. Even after taking several tests, no training seemed to correspond to my expectations. Then I found out about the no-code training at Wild Code School. I decided to explore options before applying and signing up for this training!
What interests you about no code?
No code allows to save energy and time in the sense that the quantity of work is reduced (since we don't need to write code)—and also because the visual and functional rendering can be very qualitative. For my part, I wanted to train as a web developer, and I finally decided to go for no-code! No-code brings fewer difficulties and less fatigue than web development, and the work evolves more quickly (for short projects).
The no-code movement: a promising future?
What do you think no code can bring web developers?
From what little I've seen thus far, no code allows us to build web pages with greater speed and flexibility, precisely because we don't code. We just prepare web pages directly, while respecting our clients' criteria.
No-code platforms can also make the work of web developers easier and save a lot of energy for larger projects where web development is needed.
Do you think we've witnessed a genuine no-code movement in the last few years? If so, why?
Yes! According to the statistics I've seen, in the coming years, use of no code is expected to increase exponentially. This is not surprising, because in its purpose, it's a bit like the work of web developers—but simpler and less tiring. For the most part, there are nothing but good things to say about no-code tools!
What would you say to those who are interested in no code, but who still hesitate to jump into the deep end?
There's simply nothing to lose, and it's within reach. Even people who really don't know anything about web development can do this! It's really not all that complicated.
And just because you don't have basic knowledge of a new subject doesn't mean you're going to fail. You just have to learn and work. I insist on the fact that no code is really within everyone's reach!
Thank you for all your answers! Do you have any final words for future Wilders?
Much success to all!
