👩‍💻 SheCodes Success Story

Karol

How Karol went from a complete coding beginner to working as a Frontend Developer Trainee in less than a year

Karol started her SheCodes journey in October 2020 and finished it in March 2021.

🙍‍♀️ Before SheCodes

Karol is a recent SheCodes grad from Brazil and currently living in Barcelona, Spain. She likes to spend her free time going to the beach, visiting the park, reading, cooking, and watching Netflix, along with learning new skills like coding. She started her coding journey with us as a complete beginner and is now working as a Frontend Developer Trainee. 🤩 We’re so proud of how far Karol has come!

Karol got a bachelor’s degree in business administration from the University of Sul de Santa Catarina in Brazil. She then went on to get a Postgraduate degree in Entrepreneurship and Innovation from the University of Lisbon. 

After her studies, she worked as an assistant manager, a salesperson, a finance administrative assistant, and a web marketing manager. After working in web marketing with website management, she was motivated to gain more technical skills and decided to learn how to code. Her motivation increased after she realized there were so many job opportunities in this area. 💪 💻

👩‍💻 Her SheCodes Experience

After coming across SheCodes online, Karol was very intrigued. She says that SheCodes caught her attention because it demonstrated that coding was a lot more approachable than she once thought. She also thoroughly enjoyed the female-only community to supplement her learning experience. 👩‍💻

“SheCodes showed that programming was not something from another world.. I like that it was for beginners, just for a women, had complete and organized content, and was a good price.”

“Learning with other women, I felt more comfortable and happy knowing that this is a community that is growing a lot!”

Karol’s favorite part of the SheCodes workshops she attended were creating the hands-on final projects with support along the way. 😊 🖥

🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

Karol began SheCodes without any previous coding knowledge and is now working as a Frontend Developer Trainee. 😍 She says that SheCodes helped introduce her to the world of coding and give her a good basis to build upon.

“SheCodes not only introduced me to the coding world but gave me great knowledge, to understand concepts and even the practice and gave me a chance to improve a lot more.”

Even though she was nervous to change careers, she felt more comfortable since she could get help in her coding journey along the way. This ensured that she gained a solid coding foundation and built impressive coding projects to help open the door to new career opportunities. 👩‍💼

“SheCodes gave me a good basis for understanding what programming logic is like, and also for developing small projects, opening doors for me to new opportunities. The knowledge I gained enabled me to take a test in the selection process, and the workshop certificates drew the attention of companies to my cv.”

Karol has started work as a Frontend Developer Trainee at NDD, a computer software company based in Brazil. Her current role involves following some projects with her team, along with dedicating some time to familiarizing herself with necessary coding tools and practices. 

Unlike her previous job in marketing, she now has the ability to work remotely and grow a lot more professionally. 🙌 She has big plans for her coding future which we are confident she’ll accomplish! 

“My role now is a job where you can visualize your career - where you can go as a professional and also financially. It gave me a certain hourly flexibility and the possibility to work remotely.”

“In the future, l’d like to further develop my coding skills and gain recognition for being a woman working in technology!”

👩‍💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students

Karol says that SheCodes is a community where you’ll always have help if needed, the curriculum is complete, and the price is affordable. 😄 Students like Karol help make our community as great as it is today!! 

“SheCodes is place where you don't feel alone, both for those who are curious and want to understand what development is, and for those who want a change. You have a community, and support!”

“If you are in doubt, do it. Be it for knowledge, curiosity, or career change. You can choose between something more comprehensive, or a more complete course. Here you will have enough knowledge to apply it in practice, plus support and a community full of women in the same situation as you! All this at a good price.”

Karol’s SheCodes Basics Testimonial: 
“Gave me a great base on html, css and javascript. Classes and workshop format, very good, easy to understand, flexible, possible to do even if you have work. I felt like advancing my knowledge!”

Karol’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial: 
“Very clear and objective video lessons and learning format/tool. And well explained content. Of course, at the end of the course, some topics (which are more complex) still need to be deepened and the review and continued practice is necessary, after all, a different and new content for me. But it provided a very good level to start creating independent projects!”

Karol’s SheCodes React Testimonial: 
“With SheCodes courses I have seen that it is possible to understand the world of development, and that it can even be fun! It was here that I made my career change and today I have been hired as a developer and will have my first challenge :) I am very happy, and I thank the whole SheCodes team for making this possible!”
