How SheCodes helped Hannah follow her dream career path in web development
Hannah started her SheCodes journey in October 2021 and completed the SheCodes Responsive workshop in May 2022
🙍♀️ Before SheCodes
Hannah's brother had worked as a developer for over 16 years and suggested she try her hand at coding. This proved to be great brotherly advice! 😁 So for everyone out there reading Hanna’s story - if you have a sister who you think would be interested in coding, encourage her to give it a try!
So Hannah started looking for a coding coding course or program to join - and she found SheCodes! 🤗
👩💻 Her SheCodes Experience
"Being able to go back to previous projects from the first 3 workshops and then implement what I had learned...which completely elevated them. Then even better, creating a portfolio site to see all the projects come together in one space was the cherry on top."
Hannah dived right into her classes, completing 4 workshops in just a few months. She loved the visual elements of the workshops 🖼️ and the opportunity to test her skills with small challenges after each class!
"The homework portions of each module were really enjoyable...they felt like a puzzle or problem-solving game, and getting the feedback email each week when you had successfully completed the task was very motivating!"
We do love creating fun challenges! 🧩 Hannah has shared updates from her SheCodes journey and projects on her Instagram at @hanno_gram!
🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life
"There is always something new to discover and the ability to grow alongside the forever-evolving technologies."
She also has a passion for the styling aspects and the visuals of web development, which is a passion that we share - just check out our CSS gradients and color palettes! 🎨
Hannah's eye for visuals proved to be a huge advantage for her career. The Instagram page that she created to share her coding journey caught the attention of developers and she was hired for a developer role! 😎 Congratulations Hannah! 🥳
Hannah now works with Loopspeed Ltd and Wingcard.io as a front-end developer. She helped to build both of their current websites!
"I use every single skill that I learned in SheCodes! I have built upon those skills and everything I was studying was the perfect foundation to begin my journey into working as a Frontend Developer."
👩💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students
"SheCodes is the perfect foundation for any beginner. Even if you have little to zero coding experience, don't feel daunted by this. With the vast amount of resources, links to useful websites, the staff feedback, the Slack community and access to previous student projects, there really is no other option than to come out of this course successfully!"
Hannah's SheCodes Basics Testimonial
'Learn': A video tutorial explaining how something works.
'Challenge': An opportunity to demonstrate what you have just learned.
'Solution': Explanation of how to solve the challenge.
The video tutorials are informative and perfectly timed to ensure that they aren't overwhelming for newbies. Just enough information is provided to allow students to have a clear setup whilst also providing a little extra challenge here and there. Completing the final project has left me really excited and ready to take on the 'SheCodes Plus' workshop next! Huge thank you to Matt and the SheCodes teams! :)”
