Andrew Hart Dyke, Cloud Engineer

I joined Digital Futures with little knowledge of the cloud and how it works. In just 12 weeks, under the helpful guidance of my instructor, I passed both the AWS Cloud Practitioner and Solutions Architect Associate exams and gained invaluable hands-on experience navigating the AWS platform and solving problems, which allowed me to earn a work placement at one of the most well-known media and telecoms companies.

My background isn't in coding, so the inclusive nature of the programme was important to me. We all started at different levels and the programme accommodates that nicely. I'm really excited to be starting as a Digital Futures software engineer.

I'm thrilled to be working with one of the UK's leading retail banks, for Digital Futures. The opportunity to work with big-name clients, that might not necessarily have given me a chance on my own, is what makes Digital Futures so exciting.

It’s great to work with other people – I really like the team and the cohort I’m in. Everyone comes from different backgrounds and they are all fantastic people. We also have the freedom to explore concepts and techniques on our own.

Digital Futures has given me a broader understanding of data science, business acumen, best practices, and most of all, a learning environment where I have grown tremendously and made countless friends.

Rawaz Kader, Cloud Engineer

The 12-week programme with Digital Futures has been an incredible experience. Our technical lead, Ryan, has been so supportive and friendly from day one; questions are encouraged and there is plenty of hands-on practical and group work. The cohort members are all from a non-tech background, so you're all really learning together.
