Testimonials

What the community thinks of SheCodes

5/5 - Highly recommended

โ€œThe She Codes course was an excellent overview of all the different aspects of coding - front end, back end, and career paths in the industry. From what I learned in only 4 Saturdays I am able to make tweaks to my website and even have the confidence to try building one myself. Matt and the team ...โ€
Jene Roestorf, SheCodes Alumni

โ€œWomen are dramatically under-represented across the tech industry - something we believe is important to address. That's why we're proud to host SheCodes for their first course at Second Home Lisboa and help offer an opportunity for women in Lisbon to learn more about coding and develop their skills.โ€
Lucy Crook, General Manager @ Second Home Lisboa
