👩‍💻 SheCodes Success Story

Ada

How Ada became a Junior Web Developer just a few months after finishing her SheCodes journey

Ada started her SheCodes journey in September 2020 and finished it in May 2021.

🙍‍♀️ Before SheCodes

Ada is a dedicated SheCoder from Casale Monferrato, Italy who has put her SheCodes knowledge to good use to get her first job as a developer! She loves spending her time cooking, doing yoga, and playing video games. From an early age, she’s also had an interest in tech. 🙌 💻 

She was working for IDS International as a salesperson and then decided that she wanted to change her career trajectory and pursue a career in tech instead. 

“I have always been a tech geek, and recently decided to try and make a job out of it.”

She came across SheCodes and it caught her attention so she decided to look into it. Hence, her journey into working in tech began. 🤩

👩‍💻 Her SheCodes Experience

Ada joined SheCodes in order to work towards her career goal of working in tech. She knew that some coding knowledge would be mandatory in whichever tech role she decided to pursue. She had started to learn how to code by herself online before signing up for SheCodes, but she didn't quite have the proper tools to set her up for coding success. She found that SheCodes gave her the right tools to truly learn how to code and to progress quickly.

She greatly enjoyed her SheCodes experience. 😍 Her favorite parts were seeing the results of the hard work she put into her coding exercises, the flexible schedule, and the support. 

“Finding the missing pieces that made my code work, that great feeling when everything comes together and you see what you had in mind appear in front of you like magic. 🌟 The best thing about the format of the course is the fact that due to the lessons not being live it has a very flexible schedule, and it has a great team to help you if you're stuck.”

Learning with the other SheCoders in the community was also a big plus for Ada. 👩‍💻 

“It was awesome, I connected with amazing talented women in a relaxed environment, everyone was super kind and ready to help each other.”

Check out Ada’s SheCodes React final project - she says she feels that this project is the one most representative of her coding skills at this time! 

🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

Thanks to the knowledge she gained in SheCodes, Ada was able to get a new job as a developer! 🤩 She utilized her network and found the job thanks to her connections. But it wouldn’t have been possible without her hard work and dedication! 

“I found a new job as a developer thanks to SheCodes! I found this job almost by chance, I reconnected with an acquaintance who heard I was learning to code, he asked me to do a little try-out to test my knowledge and here I am, a fresh addition to his team!”

Ada is working as a Junior Web Developer for a local web design company in her area. Her daily tasks include collaborating with her team, along with creating and renovating websites. Her now job has many perks that she's enjoying, the biggest one being that she can work from home.

“I love working from home, that's something I couldn't do while working retail or IT support.”

We’re so proud of Ada for all the progress she’s made and for transitioning to a career that she’s truly enjoying. We love our students like Ada and especially love when the knowledge they gain in SheCodes helps make a big difference in their lives.

“I am glad I took the chance and signed up because SheCodes changed my life for the better.”

In Ada’s coding future, she’d like to improve her skills and extend her knowledge to become a full-stack developer. She’s currently studying back-end languages to work towards this goal. We have no doubt she’ll be successful in achieving all of her coding goals!! 

👩‍💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students

Ada’s best advice to future students is to not let fear get in the way of learning and to be patient during your coding journey. 

“Don't let the fear of something new (and seemingly complicated) scare you from trying, if I hadn't clicked that link, I would still be working a job which I didn’t really like.”

“Don't let frustration get to you either, if something doesn't work, just put the laptop down, go for a walk and calm down, everything will seem easier after.”

Ada’s SheCodes Basics Testimonial
“I absolutely loved SheCodes. The lessons are easy and entertaining, and leave you wanting to learn more.”

Ada’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial
“SheCodes Plus was a challenging yet amazing experience. I am left feeling like I want to learn more. Loved it.”

Ada’s SheCodes React Testimonial
“Finishing this experience leaves you with a bittersweet feeling. Proud of what you accomplished yet wanting to learn more! Thanks Matt for guiding us through this challenge. I definitely would do it again.”
