After gaining some more free time, Vanda started conducting research online to find a coding course so she could develop personally and professionally. She tried one online coding course before SheCodes, but found that it didn’t really fit her needs. The mission and course format of SheCodes spoke to her and she decided to join.
“I tried just a small Udemy course that really doesn't compare to SheCodes. Then, I did a small research online trying to decide which course would be the best option for me and I came across SheCodes. I found the concept and the mission of the program just great! Improving my CV and changing the course of my career were my main goals of joining but I also joined just for personal fulfillment.”
When asked what her favorite parts of SheCodes were, Vanda said that she enjoyed the workshop environment, Slack support, and set-up of SheCodes. Also, since Vanda is so creative, she said that she really liked the design aspects of the SheCodes workshops.
“The mutual support on Slack was great and it absolutely felt like a safe space where everyone had the same opportunity to thrive. The method of having a small challenge after every lesson was great and it really pushed me to learn more. After those, I felt more confident to really tackle the main project.”
“Learning how to design and style the page was one of my favorite tasks but the satisfaction of making JS work was also amazing!”
