Introducing Caymanian born Cordell Andrade. Cordell first heard of the Cayman Code Academy (CCA) through researching available courses on computer science. Upon being inspired by the countless job opportunities in Software Engineering he decided to take the leap! After two months of studying at the CCA, he now has three job interviews lined up for his choosing. Read his motivation for learning to code, and his advice for other aspiring Caymanians looking for a career in technology.
Hi Cordell, thanks for sharing your story with us. Before we dive into the interview, tell us a bit about yourself – where do you come from and what do you enjoy doing?
My name is Cordell, I’m from West Bay, Grand Cayman. I’m an athletic individual who is very much into my sports. I used to be on the Cayman National Team for football (soccer) and was constantly taking up new sports. While my love for sports will never die, I’ve always been determined to pursue a career in computer science. However, before the CCA started there was no other route available in Cayman that directly delivered a competitive software developer curriculum that was internationally recognised and due to this, I reverted to the Cayman comfort… become a lawyer.
Expert-led online software development courses and financial assistance funds are now available to help jobseekers gain valuable remote technology work skills.
The Cayman Islands Code Academy sets out to support new career opportunities. Cayman’s first immersive code academy led by international recognised curriculum designed by Code Fellows has opened its doors with a core goal - to help teach Caymanians and residents of the Cayman Islands seeking to pursue careers in technology to become exceptional programmers, developers, and coders.
