Ashley's SheCodes journey: from teaching art to becoming a senior tech professional at NVIDIA
🙍♀️ Before SheCodes
Her decision to join SheCodes came when she was getting ready for a special program at NYU in XR Development and 3D graphics. She knew a bit about coding from her Myspace days, but she needed to know more about her program. She looked up "coding bootcamps" online and found SheCodes. The fact that it was just for women and had lots of different courses in the coding languages she wanted to learn was the final push she needed to start her coding journey with SheCodes ✨.
👩💻 Her SheCodes Experience
“My favorite thing about my experience with SheCodes was being able to use the Slack Channel to ask for help and/or help my peers. I never felt alone or stuck throughout the program, which is a big reason why I didn't want to take a course on other online companies.”
🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life
The skills Ashley learned at SheCodes, particularly in React and APIs, are essential in her day-to-day work at NVIDIA. The lasting access to SheCodes resources has been a significant benefit, allowing her to revisit lessons whenever she needs a refresher. 📚 Additionally, it was thanks to the portfolio she created during the SheCodes Pro Workshop, that she was accepted into NYU. Later, this same portfolio, caught the eye of her current manager at NVIDIA, leading to her being invited to apply for her current role. 🖥️
