Once Taisiya’s interest in coding formed, she knew she had to develop some coding skills in order to help her work towards her professional goals.
“My educational background is in Literature and Cultural Studies. In spite of my keen interest in tech, I had not gotten a chance to study any related subjects. I had gathered my first insights into the programming researching on-line, but I understand that I need a structured course and to ask questions to be able to progress. I had hoped that SheCodes would give me the knowledge to pursue the career I am looking for.”
Before SheCodes, Taisiya had dabbled with other online courses but didn’t find anything that really worked for her.
“I did a Coursera course before. I liked the SheCodes course more because it was very interactive and it was conducted in a smaller group and everyone received sufficient attention. I also think that communication on Slack channel was very convenient.”
When asked what her favorite parts of the workshop were, she said that she really enjoyed the lessons, informal atmosphere, and friendly environment.
“I liked watching the course trainer code live in the lessons. I also enjoyed the informal atmosphere of the course. Furthermore, everyone in the course was very humble, supportive of each other and friendly.”
Overall, Taisiya thinks that SheCodes was a wonderful investment for her and she also supports the mission of the company.
“It is a wonderful organization. It supports a great cause and encourages women to go into the male-dominated professional realm and thus helps to spread diversity and ultimately make our world a better place! I think the course is a fair offer. The content, the level of support, and the communication exceeded my expectations.”
