As documented by Jonathan Mabiala
I joined Rhesus Inc. in 2019 as a network engineer. I joined my current company, Desjardins, in July last year as a SAS administrator, hoping to become a programmer
With my background in programming, I believed I knew a little about everything. But I aimed to know about everything in the programming world. That led me to Simplilearn’s Full Stack Java Developer online course. I thought it would help me change my career, so I took the course last year.
After completing the course, I gained in-depth knowledge, which helped me take a leap and change my domain. Desjardins recognized my new certification, and I joined the programming team as a Java software developer.
An inquisitive upbringing
I have been to many countries since childhood because my father wanted me to see the world for myself. I also was educated abroad and received a bachelor’s degree in engineering from the University of Maine.
I started programming websites on a freelance basis as a college student. Also, I started teaching programming to my interested friends. I realized the importance of upskilling early and started teaching myself programming, and I learned Java, PHP, and other languages independently.
My work has also taken me to many places. I settled in Quebec, Canada, in 2019 with my family, mainly because of the calm surroundings and the peace of mind the country offers.
