Michael Vanin Web Developer

Enterprise Web Developer Diploma Graduate | Governor General’s Academic Award Recipient

Always Learning, Always Growing

My journey in web development began in 2019 when I became fascinated with the topic after watching online tutorials on YouTube. I knew then I wanted to become a web developer, and I began the process of self-studying and building websites for local businesses.

In 2023, I moved closer to my goal of becoming a full-time web developer as I graduated from College of the North Atlantic’s 2-year Enterprise Web Development program. This modern web development curriculum taught me many web development skills, including several programming languages, frameworks, and industry best practices.

Nearly five years since my web development learning journey began, I am still fascinated and excited by it. I am now seeking to join and contribute to the success of a company where I can bring my web development and other transferable skills, and where I can continue to hone my skills and grow as a web developer every day.

Top-Ranked Graduate in Enterprise Web Development

While receiving awards and accolades can be pleasant to receive and a way to show the value which others place on my work, my real professional aspiration as a web developer is to become better every day — to be continuously learning; to consistently improve in my ability to provide value to my employer; to seek challenges and opportunities to grow; to be the best I can be.

In 2023, I was twice awarded Intact Financial Corporation’s Values Star Award, for exemplifying the company’s values of “integrity, respect, customer-driven, excellence, and generosity.
