👩‍💻 SheCodes Success Story

Inga

How Inga found her career path and got a Front-End Development Internship thanks to SheCodes

Inga started her SheCodes journey in March 2021 and finished it in June 2021.

🙍‍♀️ Before SheCodes

Inga is a recent SheCodes grad that has found her career direction thanks to the knowledge she’s gained in SheCodes. 🙌 She’s currently living in Warsaw, Poland. She has a background in Sales and Business Development, Acquisition, and Event planning. In her free time, she enjoys spending time around horses, practicing graphic design, and snowboarding. She now enjoys practicing and improving her software development skills, too. 😍

For a while, she worked as a Sales and Business Development Representative, in charge of chasing leads and identifying prospects. She decided to expand her skill set by gaining some coding knowledge, but wasn’t sure if it was something that she could really grasp and didn’t know where to begin. 

“Around a year ago, before the pandemic I started a very basic Python course but that didn't really click. It's when I started SheCodes Workshops I fell absolutely in love with programming.”

“Programming was always kinda in the back of my head. I didn't know how to start and once I did, most of the tutorials or courses were not working out well for me. SheCodes impressed me. Being able to understand those infinite lines of code. Coding was something I knew I wanted to be able to know.”

👩‍💻 Her SheCodes Experience

Before SheCodes, Inga took many other online coding courses. She came to the conclusion that the teaching methods in these other online courses were not conducive to her way of learning. She realized that SheCodes was a great fit for her because of the teaching methods, Slack community, and homework. 

“From blog posts and YouTube tutorials to Udemy courses. Most of them were quite difficult to understand. I thought they were just super advanced but now I know it was just the way they were taught. The content was not difficult, it was explained poorly. SheCodes is totally different. Not only had we a great teacher, but the whole team was there to support you and help you if you needed anything. I also loved the homework, and being able to ask for help on Slack.”

Inga’s favorite workshops were the Responsive and React workshops! 😄 We’re so glad that she learned to code with SheCodes in all of our workshops. 

“I loved the Responsive workshop! It came quite easily to understand with the material provided and tasks given. What was even greater is when I started the React course. Oh boy! There's no greater feeling than fixing the bug or finally understand some difficult or new syntax structure. I know I probably sound like a total nerd. And guess what? I love it!”

Inga especially loved learning with other women, the supportive community, the hands-on aspect of the coding work, the course structure, and the affordability. We’re so happy that Inga chose SheCodes! 😍 

“I loved learning with other women! I like that SheCodes is a female friendly zone. Frankly, there's an issue with underestimating women, especially in IT. SheCodes is all about support and understanding. Situations where you feel too embarrassed or shy to ask for help just never occur in SheCodes.” 

“I appreciate that it is for women only. I loved the workshops and how they are taught. It's all very hands on and that really makes you learn. Not just listen but be able to actually know and understand what you are doing. What was very important for me was that I could easily navigate throughout the course. It is well structured and very clean. That makes working more pleasant. In terms of pricing I was able to get an amazing discount which honestly helped me a lot!”

🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

Inga says that SheCodes has helped change her life in that she now has a clear direction for her career. We’re so glad that Inga has decided to work in IT!! Thanks to her new coding knowledge, she’s been able to snag a Frontend Development internship! 🤩

“Of course I've learned a whole lot of new phrases, words, etc. and I'm actually able to understand what other developers are talking about (most of the time 😊). But what SheCode really gave me is that it helped me find out what I want to do. I've been struggling with that question for quite a while. Now it is clear to me that I want to stay in IT.”

“I just got an internship as a Frontend Developer at Minnity thanks to the knowledge I’ve gained in SheCodes.”

She has many job perks now that she didn’t have before, such as a more flexible work schedule!

“I work fully remotely with flexible hours. I can work at any time I wish to, which is awesome. I like the fact that this internship is very task oriented.”

In her coding future, she’d like to improve her React skills and also eventually start learning backend development. 💪 💻

👩‍💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students

Inga recommends that any coding beginners who are interested should sign up for at least the basic workshop. And like herself, she thinks that you might just become hooked after learning some coding basics. We agree! 😉 

“If you're thinking about it, you should just do it! Sign up for the basic course and I guarantee you'll stay with SheCodes for longer and gain so much knowledge.”

Inga’s SheCodes Basics Testimonial
“I have never expected to be having so much fun while coding! If you're still thinking about it, you should just do it! Totally worth it!”

Inga’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial
“Very challenging but at the same time sooo rewarding! Honestly, before enrolling, I would have never thought that coding is that much fun. It is truly amazing, creative and limitless! I absolutely loved every little part of the course. Of course, there were some hiccups, as there always are and should be expected, especially when it comes to such a complex matter. Finding solutions when you were stuck is really beneficial. Gained so much thanks to this course truly couldn't be more grateful. Highly recommended!”

Inga’s SheCodes Responsive Testimonial
“Absolutely loved it! Challenging but how incredibly rewarding. Absolutely worth taking the course, highly recommend it!”

Inga’s SheCodes React Testimonial
“I absolutely loved the React course! Filled with knowledge, useful tricks and interesting challenges. It's not the easiest one but it's totally worth it. I found myself prolonging uploading the final project simply because I didn't want it to end :)”
