The WaySeven Technologies School of Programming had another special guest come in a few weeks ago – Branka Jelić, a web designer and entrepreneur that recently launched her own business in Banja Luka.
Within their 5-week education, the 4 participant in the School of Programming will be presented to by various guests. The goal – show them the variety of careers and roles available in IT (and adjacent), while also giving them an understanding of the general path taken by our guests to get there.
Branka was originally planning a much different career for herself. She has a bachellor degree in Spatial Planning - although it was her choice of career, circumstances changed and she found a new inspiration in web design.
This turned out perfect, as Branka now runs her very own business! BPixels has only been on the market for a few months, but her clients are her first priority and her work is always of the highest quality. She was happy to discuss all the difficulties of being self-employed, including methods of overcoming initial fears of starting something new and different.
It was both fun and educational to see all the different forms and elements that can be found in the process of creating a website, and to experience business for the point of view of an individual.
We thank Branka for coming, and we hope he had as much fun as we did.
