Fahim is a student in Dhaka, Bangladesh and after taking Introduction to HTML5 on Coursera, he discovered his passion for programming and hasnâ€™t looked back. Read his story:
I realized that I really like programming and discussed changing my major with my parents, but they were skeptical. I showed them the certificates I got from Coursera and they were pleasantly surprised that I was utilizing the internet as a learning tool, and became supportive of my new passion. Iâ€™m now doing my undergraduate degree in Computer Science, and these courses are keeping me up to date on the latest topics while also helping me prepare me for my exams.
I am also participating in the ACM International Collegiate Programming Contest, and Iâ€™m thankful to Coursera for being my founding step towards the beautiful world of programming. I did not know anything about programming before I started doing courses on Coursera and now Iâ€™m working as a Front End Developer.
