Where are you on your coding journey?
Hi, I'm Simon 👋 Founder of All The Code.
I know what it's like to come into this industry as a new developer. The grit it takes to walk the path from learning to code to getting that elusive first job.
You don't need to do it alone. I'm here to help. Start here 👇
Simon helped a lot when I was looking for my first developer role, I needed guidance on how to word my CV and what I should look out for in interviews!
I don’t think I would have gotten a job within 6 weeks without his help
I met Simon through his blog, at the time I was very anxious about starting to send out cvs whether I was ready or not, so when an article on his blog made me wonder, if a Senior developer like Simon is talking about what the market expect from junior developers I feel much calmer, after that I started talking to Simon he supported me when I was about to do an interview with tips and guidance and in the same process he directed me in my test I am very grateful for his help and without a doubt he is a great developer and person.
It’s been a year since I first connected with Simon and straight away his insights and advice were key to helping me explore a new opportunity in the tech space and ultimately securing the the job offer I needed to break away from a role I had been feeling trapped in for the previous six years.
These days Simons content is still helping me move closer to my goal of transitioning into a developer role as I continue my learning to code journey by helping me plan my resume and portfolio and helping me know what to expect in the application and interviewing processes.
Hi, I'm Simon 👋
Coding has always been my hobby. I taught myself to code following the amazing CS50 course back in 2007 - back then it was just some videos on iTunesU and an open FTP folder on Harvard's servers!
Since then I have gone on to launch 5 iOS and Android apps, made over 100 web side projects, built technology for some of the biggest brands in the world and now I share my knowledge with over 100K developers online.
In 2020 I started sharing coding snippets and advice on Instagram, I wanted to share some of my knowledge with the world and see if I could demystify the coding world for new and aspiring developers.
Although I learned to code before boot camps and online academies I actually think it's harder to know what to learn and how to learn it now than it was back in 2007 - there is just so much choice and noise.
My aim is to offer practical, straight forward advice that gets you from where you are now to confidently working in a developer role and on the path to your dream career.
Whether you are just starting with coding or if you have 20 years of experience, Simon's posts will always leave you thinking about something you didn't consider before.
His content covers tons of different topics like tools, tech tips, setup, reflections (my favorites) and has helped me keep my motivation going on tough days. I can't recommend it enough.
Also, he is a truly nice guy, but please, don't DM him just to say "Hi". 😂
I started following Simon because of the legitimacy of the content he was posting. Simple, useful and applicable realistic tips based on experience acquired through his extensive career.
I continue to follow Simon because the quality of his posts continues to improve and impress as his follower's counter goes up, instead of becoming more generic as it often happens with your everyday influencer.
And to be completely honest, I want to succeed in a software development career, and probably without even noticing, Simon already played a huge part in it.
I came across allthecode via Instagram reels and found the content to be quite handy yet bite sized.
Hearing from someone who has undergone the process is better than other content out there
Simon is really helpful and always gives solid and useful advice. He has a lot of experience and knows what he's talking about.
Would definitely recommend Simon to anyone at any stage of their coding, whether complete beginner or hunting for their first role!
