UX Designer @ zeb.applied

"A year ago, I was certain that I wanted to make a career change. So when I heard about the UX design course at everyone codes, I immediately applied. It was an intense course, but I learned so much! After every week, I felt like I've achieved the impossible. The course definitely prepared me well for the job, as I found a position as a UX designer just shortly after graduation. Don't hesitate and apply!"

"To my great surprise, we worked with real companies and agencies during the course and received regular feedback from experts in the industry. Today, I work as a UX designer and use the knowledge I gained at everyone codes almost every day. I even made a lot of new friends along the way. The community they created is just awesome and I always enjoy coming back to the regular community events."

UX Designer @ Kapeeto

"I had some previous experience in IT, so the UX design course was the next logical step for me. We worked in teams on multiple exciting projects, while also learning about soft skills and human interaction. The whole group really grew together in the end, and I’m sad that the course is over now. But I'm also glad that I was able to start an internship in UX design right after the course ended!"
