LEAD INSTRUCTORS

Our lead instructors are first-rate developers we hand-picked for their passion, their skill, and their enthusiasm. Each course has its own dedicated lead instructor, who will be there to guide you personally on your journey into coding.

Maria has done a bit of everything in her field: she studied fashion design at university, created her own brand, worked for established design firms, and sharpened her skills with a bootcamp – where she stood out so much, that she became its instructor! Joining WBS CODING SCHOOL after these experiences, she is happy to return to teaching, which she sees as a form of storytelling its own right.

Alkis has worked as a software engineer for the last 25 years and will never stop being one. He has a Master’s degree in CS and his approach to a project is that the bigger the challenge, the better! Though he has written countless lines of code of his own, he also loves helping others in their journey to become developers and change their lives. His biggest dream is to one day create a successful video game, and from his point of view he has never worked a day in his life – he only pursues his favorite hobby seven days a week!

Chris loves the creative process of bridging the gap between a vision and its realization, whether he’s doing it himself or helping his students with it. A coding bootcamp graduate in his early 20s, he went on to work for both startups and established companies in the fields that most interested him: web development, gaming, cryptocurrencies, writing systems, and anything that was fundamentally creative. Originally from Brighton, England, Chris has also lived in France, Spain, and Malaysia, and has an international outlook in both work and education.

Andres worked his way up to management roles through a variety of coding jobs… and then deliberately back down when he realized that what he loved doing most was hands-on development instead! He loves projects that let him feel like he is helping other people, and he never lost the sense of wonder he first felt when coding allowed him to create something and put it into the world. He is a big fan of good science fiction in all of its forms, and he likes to unwind with golf in the summer and cross-country skiing in the winter.

Joan is an experienced Data Analyst and Project Manager who started out his career in international commerce, but quickly switched his focus once he realised how essential data was in his field. After working his way up in the tech industry in a variety of roles, he tried his hand out as Data Mentor, and discovered how much he enjoyed sharing his knowledge with others. Today, when he isn’t showing his students how to efficiently crunch numbers, he can be found biking up the Collserola mountain range and admiring the view from up high of his city, Barcelona.

Born in Argentina to Italian parents, Enrique is a jack-of-all-trades who combined a career as a sound engineer with that of an international competitive skier. He started coding professionally as a freelancer in his family business, working with clients from the marketing industry; at the time he was also coaching future skiers, and now he has found a way to combine both passions – by teaching people how to code! Enrique’s interests outside of work include skydiving and BASE jumping, and of course skiing.

Besslan started out by working on transport and insurance software, but eventually discovered he likes teaching just as much as coding. A former bootcamp graduate himself, he loves seeing others follow the same path of learning and growth that he already went through. Outside of tech his interests are various – from cooking and videogames to Greek philosophy and Brazilian Jiu Jitsu.

After obtaining her Bachelor in Public Relations and working in the online marketing sector, Sarah signed up for a Web & App Development bootcamp with WBS CODING SCHOOL. There she discovered her passion for user-friendly interfaces, and learned how to create her own applications rather than using those of others. Her out-of-office passions include travelling all over Africa, scuba diving, and spending time with her greyhound Lucie.

Ali has divided his career so far between working as a Data Scientist at private firms, and as an instructor at various coding schools. He is currently fully dedicated to the latter because, in his own words, ‘it feels less like work than like an enjoyable hobby’. In his free time he loves to read up about politics, economy and technology, or else take out his bicycle and go for a ride.

Born in the UK, Ben lived in the USA and in Australia before choosing to settle in Berlin, where he worked as a professional coffee roaster before switching careers with the WBS CODING SCHOOL Data Science bootcamp. Having studied both Data Science and Philosophy, Ben has come to the conclusion that the two are actually very similar – at least, both will require you to process a ton of information. His most beloved passions outside of tech are his bicycle, which has carried him all over Europe, and his dog Toulo.

It wasn’t until relatively late in life that Reagan had an opportunity to try coding – before that, he had lived on a ranch and served in the US military. After completing the WBS CODING SCHOOL Web & App Development bootcamp, however, he fell in love with the discipline and decided to share his knowledge with others. Outside of teaching, Reagan is a big fan of indoors climbing and 3D puzzles.

Sabine transitioned from a career in academia as Cognitive Neuroscientist to Data Scientist via a bootcamp. She has since worked for leading tech companies as Data Scientist and Machine Learning Consultant, before starting her own business merging tech with design methods. She enjoys a simple lifestyle in rural Portugal where she can go surfing, practice arts and crafts, and grow veggies.

Formerly a Digital Marketing manager, over time Peter’s career veered more and more towards web development and search engine projects. He took the WBS CODING SCHOOL Web & App Development bootcamp to sharpen his skills in the field, and has now gone on to teach them to others as an instructor. Alongside teaching, he is also developing a variety of projects as a freelancer.

Andreea studied Criminology and Social Statistics for her BA, Data Science for her MA, and is currently completing a PhD in Decision Sciences. She is a natural extrovert and loves working with people, which is why she pursued teaching professionally first in universities, then in bootcamps in the UK and in Germany. She is also very fond of puzzles of all sorts, but can easily be distracted from them if approached by literally any type of pet!

Hana has always been fascinated by the ‘investigative’ nature of data, and the way it allows you to discover truths that are not visible at first. With experience in studying IT at both universities and bootcamps, she recently discovered that she loves teaching too – and, when she isn’t doing that, hiking or baking cakes.

The teachers are knowledgeable and engaged, the community manager and career service advisor make sure you have everything you need.

JUNIOR INSTRUCTORS

Our junior instructors come from a variety of backgrounds, including our own courses. They will hold workshops on specific topics and will be available to provide you personal assistance should you be struggling.

Patrick’s fields were philosophy, art history and literature, until one day the YouTube algorithm pushed a video about learning how to code in his feed. One WBS CODING SCHOOL bootcamp later, he found himself teaching Web Development to others! When he isn’t coding, he loves to be in the open air, hiking or cycling.

Graphic Designer by degree, Lilian started in the catering industry and moved to the world of coding, first studying by herself and then with the WBS CODING SCHOOL Web & App Development bootcamp. It was then a natural development that she wanted to continue passing on knowledge. A geek at heart, when not coding or busy with motherhood, she is playing tabletop wargames or putting another set of miniatures together.

Onur studied Business Information Systems in his university days, and put those skills to use for a Dutch construction company – only to leave when he realized the job didn’t let him code enough. A graduate of the WBS CODING SCHOOL Web & App Development bootcamp, he is also passionate about AI and has a history as a pro Twitch streamer. Onur sees himself as a child of the Mediterranean, and he loves the sea, the people, and the food of this beautiful region.

Vasil is a scientist, and more precisely a biophysicist, with his first teaching experience picked up in university. Upon realizing that his job as a scientist was mostly about collecting and analyzing data, he decided to take that to the next level and took the WBS CODING SCHOOL Data Science bootcamp. He loves to see his students become independent, and outside of work he is a self-avowed sports nerd, with a passion for everything from football and basketball to Formula 1.
