πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» SheCodes Success Story

Katrin

Check out how Katrin founded her own business after SheCodes πŸš€

πŸ™β€β™€οΈ Before SheCodes

This is KatrinπŸ‡¨πŸ‡­! She lives in Zurich, Switzerland, where she enjoys a busy family life. Her life is a blend of caring for her family and seeking the small pleasures in life. As a self-proclaimed early bird, she enjoys the tranquility of morning workouts, as well as walking her dog.

Before joining SheCodes, Katrin worked in different jobs. She first worked as a key account manager in the construction sector and then as a consultant for interior design. However, she was looking for a change in her life. Katrin decided to learn coding because she was curious about her husband's job as a software developer. She wanted to understand what he does and found herself interested in coding too.

β€œIn my search for the perfect coding course, I had two key criteria: affordability and interactive learning. I wanted a program that was more than just passive video lectures; I was seeking an environment where I could actively engage, ask questions, and really grasp the concepts. That's when I stumbled upon SheCodes.”

After thoughtful consideration, Katrin chose SheCodes for her coding studies because it was both budget-friendly and hands-on. She wanted a course where she could actively participate, not just passively watch videos. She was drawn to SheCodes’ welcoming community and the engaging learning method. This made her feel confident that SheCodes was the perfect place to begin her adventure in coding πŸš€.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’» Her SheCodes Experience

Katrin's journey with SheCodes was truly enriching and supportive. 🌟 The best part of the learning process for her was the Slack channel, a platform for quick answers to questions. But it was more than just a place for getting help; it was a space to build connections with other SheCoders. This created a strong sense of community among women, making everyone feel supported and connected.

One of Katrin's most memorable moments was the mix of excitement and nervousness with every homework submission. Even when she felt confident about her work, there was always a thrill in waiting for feedback. This routine of submitting her work and anticipating the response became a cherished part of her learning experience, highlighting her passion and dedication to coding πŸ‘©β€πŸ’».

β€œWhat's more, the journey doesn’t end with the course; being part of SheCodes means you're a lifelong member of this empowering network. The opportunity for ongoing networking and connection with like-minded women across the globe is invaluable and continues to enrich my professional and personal growth.”

Being part of SheCodes didn't just end with the course. Katrin loved that she became a lifelong member of this empowering network, giving her endless opportunities to connect with like-minded women all over the world. This has been a key part of her growth, both professionally and personally.

πŸ™‹ How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life

After completing her journey with SheCodes, Katrin embarked on an ambitious journey, founding her own company, Qodee GmbH. πŸš€ This step made her not only the CEO and Founder but also an AI Specialist within her own company. This is a clear testament to Katrin's passion for innovative web development and AI. She created a platform that showcases her commitment to cutting-edge technology and creative problem-solving.

β€œThe resources and knowledge I gained from SheCodes have been indispensable in my current role. I frequently refer back to the information and websites recommended by Matt, the founder of SheCodes.”

The training and resources from SheCodes have been invaluable in her role. Katrin frequently refers back to the course materials, websites recommended by Matt, and specific videos to guide her daily work and strategic decisions. πŸ€– Tools like SheCodes Athena, are now integral to her projects, and the SheCodes cheatsheets serve as her "coding bible," always within reach for quick reference. These resources have not only supported her tasks but have also been crucial in shaping her approach and efficiency as a leader and consultant in AI.

Beyond her professional success, SheCodes has had a lasting impact on Katrin. It has bridged the gap in understanding what her husband does, adding a new layer to their relationship. The experience has also reinforced her belief that ambition and enjoyment are key to effective learning. 🀝 Being part of the SheCodes community, with its supportive and inspiring atmosphere, feels like having a tech-savvy family, always ready to help and motivate.

β€œJoining SheCodes has been a game-changer in more ways than one. Not only do I finally get what my husband does for a living (turns out, he’s not just 'making magic' on his computer!), but it also proved to me that ambition and fun are a powerful learning combo.”

For Katrin, the decision to join SheCodes and subsequently founding Qodee GmbH has been a transformative journey, enriching her life both professionally and personally πŸš€.

πŸ‘©β€πŸ’Ό Advice to Future SheCodes Student

Katrin has some valuable advice for future SheCodes students, drawn from her own experience. She would tell anyone starting their coding journey to "Take a step back and give yourself more time." Katrin knows firsthand the temptation to jump into learning with full force, driven by enthusiasm. However, she's learned the importance of pausing and letting the new information soak in. She believes that sometimes, letting concepts and code 'marinate' overnight can make a big difference 🌟.

β€œIt’s not just about working hard but working smart, and recognizing that allowing information to settle is just as important as actively studying it.”

Coming back to it with fresh eyes often brings clarity and understanding that was missing before. For Katrin, it's not just about putting in the hours of study but also about studying smartly. She emphasizes the need to recognize that taking time to let information settle is as crucial as learning it actively.

We’re proud of you Katrin! πŸš€

πŸŽ‰ Katrin’s SheCodes Plus Testimonial:
β€œI am so proud of myself. I completed this course again very quickly. The tasks are clearly structured and easy to implement. The explanations of the individual features and programs were also easy to understand. I especially like the fact that you get homework and that it is checked. I also have to say that the Slack Community is absolutely great and you get help really fast. Thanks to Matt and his team. It was absolutely wonderful and I am already looking forward to the next course.”

πŸŽ‰ Katrin’s SheCodes React Testimonial:
β€œBig thanks to the team for a fantastic learning journey! As a woman in tech, I found the homework corrections super helpful - like having a personal coding coach. It turned my 'oops' into 'eureka' moments. Your blend of humor, expertise, and encouragement made learning React feel less like rocket science and more like fun science. Highly recommend for any woman looking to conquer the React world with a smile!”

πŸŽ‰ Katrin’s SheCodes Next Testimonial:
β€œParticipating in SheCodes Next was a transformative experience for me. This course, focusing on applying skills, networking, and building a professional portfolio, offered invaluable insights and practical knowledge. The networking aspect was particularly enlightening, providing me with the opportunity to connect with like-minded professionals and broaden my industry understanding. Overall, SheCodes Next is not just a course; it's an empowering journey that equips and inspires.”
