Besides Clara’s university class, she also took one other coding course besides SheCodes.
“I can say that SheCodes is, in my opinion, way better than the other online course I took, because in SheCodes we had a great - and fun - instructor. Also, having supportive classmates who loved the coding challenges as much as I did also played a big part in it! Whenever I had a question, I could ask and receive help. There was a really positive, although demanding, atmosphere from start to finish.”
In her SheCodes workshops, Clara really enjoyed the homework, feedback, and unique teaching methods that set SheCodes apart from other online coding courses.
“I really liked the fact that we had homework and could get feedback on it; for me, it has always been a great way to learn. During lessons, Matt's approach and pedagogy was also perfect: for a certain topic, he would give us a theoretical note on it, followed by an example and then an exercise for us to complete. I also fancied the times when he challenged us by introducing new topics!”
When asked what her favorite part of the SheCodes workshops was, she said it was definitely developing the final projects because it was really fun and challenging. Her projects are creative and very impressive 😍 Check them out below 👇
Clara also said that her experience learning with other women was great because of the friendly and comfortable learning environment.
“Being a woman in the tech world can sometimes be overwhelming given the low percentage of female presence in the field and learning side by side with other women makes one feel more comfortable.”
