SheCodes was Lea’s entry into the coding world and it helped provide her with a solid coding foundation and ways in which to showcase her coding knowledge to attract the attention of employers - including her projects built from scratch and her verified certificates to display on her LinkedIn. 🙌 The friendly learning environment of SheCodes also played a huge role in her desire to transition to a new career.
“Having digital and verified certificates on my LinkedIn account was a huge help. Also, to connect the certificates with my portfolio website is very helpful. Still, I cannot emphasize enough how helpful this fear-free and flexible learning environment was for me.”
After SheCodes, Lea decided to pursue Full Stack development for a bit of time and attended a bootcamp in Berlin. Along with Full Stack Development, she also studied a bit of other coding languages and UI/UX Design. She says that the Front End Development knowledge that she gained in SheCodes was a total lifesaver. Thanks to her SheCodes knowledge, she got a position as a Web & App Development Intern at RGMT Network UG
. She was part of the Flutter app development team for the Apple App Store, and was in charge of supporting the design of the WordPress website regarding UI/UX design, work on some JS projects, searching for bugs and their solutions, analyzing the community feedback, and supporting the re-branding.
Lea had big goals to become a developer after her internship, and she's succeeded!! She has snagged a job as a Front End Developer at eClever and she couldn’t be happier. 😍 The whole SheCodes team is so proud!
“Thanks to the React JS knowledge that I have gained in SheCodes, I was able to land my current job as a front-end developer at a company in the e-mobility industry.”
In Lea’s typical work day, she spends time in meetings, planning team sprints, fixing bugs, and either coding in a pair or coding new components on her own. She is loving her work as a coder, especially the result-oriented work, a higher salary, more interesting and creative work, and more flexible and remote work. We’re so thrilled that Lea has found a job that brings her so much happiness!! 💜
“The work as a coder is so much better than my old job in a huge office with fixed (and awful) working hours. I prefer the result oriented working life as a coder, the work is also so much more interesting, and I can create things. I get a much higher salary, I work flexible from home, and I enjoy work so much more. No chance for boredom.”
“Coding raised my happiness level from 0 to 1000000. I can't imagine myself in other work now. No other work sets me free and allows me to expand myself in knowledge and skills. It satisfies my logical side as well as my creative side.”
Lea said that SheCodes is the reason that she’s working in tech and has provided her with so many career opportunities. 🙌
“Without SheCodes I wouldn't have been able to start my career in tech which was always a dream. It gave me better basics than a 3 months bootcamp that I attended. Thanks to my gained knowledge I am even now being contacted by HRs all over the world to work for them as a developer or IT consultant every day several times while being already employed as a front-end developer.”
We’re so proud of how far Lea has come and how much coding knowledge she’s gained! 😊 In her coding future, she’s interested in studying cybersecurity and Python. We know that with her dedication and intelligence, she’ll achieve all of her coding dreams! 💪 💻
