month DataTjej: Michaela Lundborg

In English below

Nominated by Mikaela Lundsgård, with the motivation: "I want to nominate my wonderful classmate Michaela Lundborg who is my rock at school, always so helpful and cruel at coding."

Name: Michaela Lundborg
Age: 25 years
Workplace: Studying for Web Developers at Yrgo in Gothenburg.

How did you get in touch with DataTjej?
We were visited by two DataTjejyou at the beginning of the training that gave us information about
association and membership.

Tips for girls who want to study IT and technology-related subjects?
Maybe sounds cliché but: dare! I myself was very unsure if I would be able to complete the education, given that I had hardly any previous experience. I thought that everyone who applied was probably super good and could already program, and therefore hesitated for a while before I dared to apply. But am so glad I did! It was of course difficult in the beginning and took a while to get into it, but as long as curiosity and the will to learn are there, it's just driving. So dare to look for what you are interested in, and be patient - you do not have to understand everything at once!

Did you have any previous work experience in IT / technology before you started your current studies?
No not at all!

Can you tell us how you ended up in your education and what you could work on after graduating?
After graduating, I really had no idea what I wanted to do. Therefore worked for a couple of years in a store and read a few different courses to try to find something I thought was fun and interesting. One of these courses was an introductory course in web development where you got to learn the basics of HTML and CSS. I found it exciting and fun, and started looking for educations in the field. I then opened my eyes to Yrgo and sent in my application for the next start. I was then called for an interview and did the entrance exam - and after a nervous wait I was told that I had come in. Have enjoyed it fantastically well since then!

It is a very broad education that covers many areas, and therefore it is possible to choose a specialization based on what you are interested in after graduation. You can, for example, work as a front-end, back-end or full-stack developer, IT consultant or system developer. A future workplace could be at a large IT company as well as at a slightly smaller web agency, and it is also possible to freelance.

What is the best thing about your education?
I would probably say that the best thing is precisely the breadth of the education - that we have had to try out so many different techniques and programming languages, which has provided a good foundation to build on. Since it is a YH education, the content is well adapted to what the industry demands, and I think that the teaching has a good structure with very practical elements in the form of project work. We have had many fun projects where we sometimes collaborated with students from the Digital Design class, and in some of the projects we have also worked with a real customer, which has been very educational and fun. In addition to this, a large part of the education consists of internships, for which it will soon be time. I think it will be incredibly rewarding and is super tagged!
