You've probably heard a lot of praise about jobs in tech. How they pay well; how it's in-demand; how it gives you skills that you can use to create your own applications and digital businesses; how you can even freelance, be your own boss and work from the beaches of Bali.

But where do you begin? There are so many job titles, Web Designer, UX Designer, UI Designer, Web Developer, App Developer, Coder, Programmer, Full Stack Developer, Back-end Developer... probably your head is spinning already. You try to do some research and then you read even more intimidating names like HTML, Javascript, Photoshop, Sketch, Ruby, and Python.

If only there was someone to talk to and show you the way?! Vako here to do just that. To shed some light on all of those confusing tech career paths and possibly get you excited about pursuing one.

"Several years ago I was in a similar position. I had neither Design nor Computer Science degree. I had little confidence in getting myself a brand new career especially in such an elusive industry, or so I thought. But today I'm a freelance UI/UX/Web Designer (I know, looks like I haven't made up my mind yet) and I couldn't believe my luck."

In this workshop, we will go through these popular career paths and shed some light on them and give you some guidance on where to begin your journey. Could design be your thing? Building e-commerce websites? or developing in Ruby as part of a large tech team?


Vako is a UI/UX designer and a best-selling Udemy instructor based in Lisbon.

He has a background in Graphic Design, Web Design, Marketing and 2 startups under his belt. One of which took the 1st place in an app competition organized by Facebook itself in their London headquarters.

Today, Vako is living his dream lifestyle – working as a freelance designer remotely while being his own boss.

He teaches on Udemy because he wants to help others achieve their life goals. The world of tech startups, design, programming, and online businesses is an exciting place to be in. It offers high reward and career possibilities that were not possible before. Vako wants to guide learners into this exciting world and help them find their own rewarding career paths.
