MEET YOUR INSTRUCTORS

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.

Fey Recanatini, Lead instructor

Fey

Fey likes everything computer-related, from information security to time travel. Her favorite organic things, on the other hand, are dinosaurs and onigiri. She has been having fun with coding for more than a decade now and she believes no matter who you are, where you come from or what your motivation in life is, you have the power to accomplish anything you set your mind to, whether it is smart or dumb. Her favorite travel destination is Japan, although she enjoys trying to feel like a non-tourist anywhere she ends up in.

Ben

Ben is a former relief worker turned pro geek. After having worked in multiple countries (Bolivia, Lebanon, Mali, Kenya, Philippines, Vanuatu…) on large-scale disaster relief and development projects, he turned to the tech side of the Force. A self-taught developer, he went on to expand his knowledge through coding bootcamps, and put his new powers to use in web agencies, as well as in startups in FinTech and LegalTech. When he’s not roaming around on his motorbike, diving somewhere exotic, or trying out new cool tech, you can usually find him eating pastéis de nata in a café somewhere in Lisbon.

Gio Sambrotta Lead instructor Part time

Gio

Gio is a self-taught web developer who recently rounded off her first decade of professional experience, mostly spent exploring the jungled world of Javascript. She has worked – as freelance or employee – for both established companies and early-stage startups (the latter are very much her favorite!). In 2012, she co-founded OpenTechSchool, an organization to support people who wished to learn how to code, and had the opportunity to coach many aspiring programmers. In her free time, Gio will usually do martial arts or power training at the gym, or else practice a nature-and-mind retreat of some variety. Asking where she is can be tricky – she and her van tend to be on the move a lot!

Jorge, Lead Instructor

JORGE

After having earned his stripes in the software consulting industry, Jorge devoted himself to education, and now works as a guide for all aspiring learners on their journey into professional web development. Hailing from Mexico, his academic background is in applied mathematics and computer science, and his favorite things to do when he isn’t coding include drawing, reading, biking, role-playing games and, of course, cooking Mexican food.

Yacine Lead Instructor

YACINE

Born in Algeria and raised in France, Yacine tried out a variety of jobs before taking a coding bootcamp in his early twenties and discovering that his true vocation was in tech. While building experience as a freelance software developer for a variety of clients all over Europe, he soon discovered the joy of sharing new technologies with others, and subsequently took up work as a coding instructor. Yacine loves adventure of both an intellectual and physical kind, and is just as happy exploring modern art (his favorite French comics very much included!) as he is going out for a session of bodyboarding or Muay Thai.

JOAN

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.

Aria, Lead Instructor

Aria

Born in Paris, Aria is a full-stack developer and infrastructure engineer who has plied his trade as both freelancer and contracted employee. His know-how includes creating websites, Apps, and software infrastructure for businesses to handle data flow. He has a special place in his heart for Moto GP, and for Budapest, where he spent 8 years as a teenager. He loves to teach, because he loves to learn – and he has a particular passion for learning languages, having taught himself Japanese and Arabic.

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.

Martin Fleskes, Junior instructor

Martin

Once an agent in the travel industry, Martin took the WBS CODING SCHOOL bootcamp in 2020 and turned his career around to become a full-stack web developer. When he isn’t coding software or mentoring students through their own bootcamp experience, you will find him playing football for the glory of his local village team or cheering for his club Borussia Dortmund. Martin is also a globe-trotter with a soft spot in his heart for Iceland, but his true passion remains his family, and finding time in his day to spend with his baby girl.

Donald Roshi, Junior instructor

Donald

After years spent travelling Europe and the US while trying out his hand at a dozen different jobs, Donald decided to fulfil his long-nurtured dream of becoming a computer programmer and took the WBS CODING SCHOOL’s Full-Stack Web & App Developer course. His focus of interest lies in analyzing and visualizing data. A self-identified otaku, Donald is madly in love with manga and anime, but he also likes taking long mountain-bike excursions with his friends and swimming. He loves finding out new things and would like to learn everything there is to be known about computers – although he knows perfectly well this is impossible!

MENTORS

Our mentors are outstanding graduates from our bootcamps who now volunteer to provide extra support for other students, including 1:1 sessions, answering calls for help on our messaging channels, and organizing extra-curricular workshops. They will ensure you always have someone to turn to.
