Inspiring stories from Hexlet graduates who’ve found jobs all over the world

A tech-humanitarian who got into manual testing, then learned JS on Hexlet, went to Canada, and got a job at Unity.

"While developing automatic QA solutions , I was stumped by the fact that I needed to know programming and DevOps to fully grow my career. At first, I tried to get into it without a sound base, going through all sorts of sketchy micro-course learning programs, only to realize that it was a long and unproductive way to go. That's how I got to Hexlet, which became my seasoned mentor."

While working as an upholsterer in a furniture factory he mastered JavaScript on Hexlet and became a developer in Poland.

"Since I had no experience in programming, I was looking for the courses that presented the material in a clear and simple way. That's how I found Hexlet. I was very attracted by the unusual knowledge delivery with the built-in practice, where the theory indirectly intersects with exercises, meaning I had to use my brain to understand and consume each piece of theory."
