As part of our series of profiles on CodeBoxx’s graduates, we asked David Boutin to write a short piece about his history and his motivations. As part of the “career reorientation” segment, David is a great inspiration for his colleagues and future participants.
David Boutin, May 17, 2019
I joined the Forces at age 17 (2002), during my career I had to be deployed as an infantryman twice in Afghanistan. I’ve always loved action, adrenaline, and doing something concrete on the ground. Believe me, I’ve got a good bang for my buck during my 2 deployments! Due to medical reasons, I had to withdraw from the Forces in 2016.
However, I still had an appetite for stimulating challenges that would allow me to do something concrete. I wanted to find myself in the heart of the action again, to have a “hands-on” experience since that was what motivated me the most!
I have always liked the field of technology without really devoting myself to it. When I heard about the CodeBoxx School of Technology’s bootcamp concept, I was immediately attracted.
CodeBoxx joined my values, we could see clearly that he put forward a concept of “doers”, experiences in the heart of the action. A stimulating bootcamp and with a clear guideline: we go straight to the point!
Today, thanks to CodeBoxx, I work in the field of T.I and I love the choice I made! In no time I regret my choice.
