Abbey got a job as a Front End Developer after taking the 4 month SheCodes Plus React workshop, which includes all three workshops that SheCodes has to offer. She was able to completely alter her career path thanks to her new coding knowledge 💪 💻
“I have recently changed careers from retail store manager to front end dev. Going through SheCodes gave me the knowledge to know where to start and analytical skill set to improve on that knowledge in my new field/career.”
“SheCodes helped me connect so many dots as a beginner and now I’m able to use that knowledge I learned through those courses to influence my day-to-day at work.”
Abbey is now working as a Front End Developer at Foremost Media and is finding her job to be very fulfilling thus far. When she first began this role, a typical day would include handling smaller support tickets, learning about new technologies that her company uses, and learning how to create clean and concise code.
Now, after having worked there for a few months, her daily tasks have developed and grown a bit. She manages her day with help of service and project boards. Along with daily standup meetings, she also partakes in upgrading sites, QA testing to ensure everything is ready before product launches, ADA compliance auditing, and content pop tickets for variety and more learning opportunities. She works closely with her project and support managers to get her questions answered in order to successfully handle service, hack clean-up, client, and project tickets (such as upgrading site modules, updating themes, and general QA). She really enjoys her work because it’s never dull and she’s always learning something new. Plus, it involves a brand new way of problem solving, which she finds to be very rewarding. She’s working on improving her coding knowledge every day and is enjoying soaking it all in.
“I have to problem solve differently now and it uses a different part of my brain which is so rewarding. Every day I feel so full of knowledge and I discover something new with every task I’m given.”
“I am taking my new field day by day and soaking in all the knowledge. I just want to keep learning and improving in HTML, CSS, JS, and ReactJS. There is so much to uncover and learn in each language!”
