My name is James Bedford, I am a 27 year old Web Developer. I started working as a freelance web designer 13 years ago, and at the age of 14 I sold my first website. It has been a long running love of mine, and something that I have always done. Currently I run my own consultancy company and do contract work as well as advise individual companies on how to improve their online presence.
I am passionate about getting people into code and teaching them the most effective ways of learning and succeeding at programming. This comes from my days in education and studying Computer Science: I had trouble throughout my studies, and found much better success working off my own back rather than the content being taught in lessons. I find actually building items over and over and over to be more beneficial to me and this is what I want to share with everyone.
I am firmly of the belief that programming is only as hard as you make it. You just need to figure out how best to learn it.
This is why I have put together a course to talk about the things that aren't often taught in the coding world - the soft skills necessary to get yourself into a new career. I run through right from the start, where you should learn and what you should learn, right up to applying for jobs and getting your first freelance contracts!
Students will get some excellent resources, as well as knowledge from several experienced developers and career people. As well as this, students will get continued support on their learning, and if you ever need to know anything or require help then please feel free to get in touch.
Who this course is for:
- Someone who is looking at getting a job in web development but doesn't know where to start.
- People who have tried applying for web development jobs but are having no success.
- People who are looking at advancing their web development career.
Hello! My name is James Bedford. Nice to meet you!
I am a Web Consultant and Developer from Berkshire, UK. I have done many jobs over the years, from working with a construction company, to starting my own business breeding horses. My ultimate passion however is web development, and since 2017 I have been working for myself as a consultant.
In short, my job consists of advising companies on their online presence and I got to this stage by starting off making Wordpress websites for local gaming teams.
My goal in life is to help others achieve their dreams of getting into web development, and hopefully with my courses I can inspire others to get themselves out there and start making money doing what they love!
