How SheCodes Max helped Lilla to transform her career
Lilla started her SheCodes journey in March 2021 and completed all SheCodes workshops in November 2022
🙍♀️ Before SheCodes
Lilla had been working as a Process Engineer in the pharmaceutical, medical and biotechnology industries. She spent her career working in research & development, manufacturing, and engineering.
Lilla had been looking to develop her web development skills from a beginner level. She tried out a lot of courses and discovered SheCodes through our 60-minute free class!
👩💻 Her SheCodes Experience
"I enjoyed the problem-solving and creativity I could use for small coding projects...then when I did my first project with Matt, I realized the power and creativity and wide range of opportunities in web development, and I wanted to deepen my knowledge."
Lilla enjoyed the bite-sized lessons, coding challenges and flexible schedule of SheCodes. She found herself making progress every week! 📈
The support of the SheCodes community of fellow learners on Slack also helped to keep Lilla motivated - you can get in touch with any other students who are learning with you at the same time, ask for help and share solutions. 🤗
🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life
"Matt taught me how to code and think like a programmer: how to break down complex problems into smaller steps, how to use analytical thinking to solve problems, and, most importantly, how to use these skills in real life."
Lilla enjoyed SheCodes so much that it inspired her to switch careers. Coding had originally been her hobby - and now it became her profession!
"I did an internship as a software engineer at a company that designs and develops websites and apps. A few months ago, I got my first-ever job as a Front End Engineer, and now I am working on the front-end side of different applications for small businesses."
Congratulations Lilla! 👏
👩💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students
"Curiosity made learning so much fun: try out different things, and play with your projects even (or especially) when they are not perfect! Embrace the error messages! And connect with others! Many other women are struggling with the same issues as you or are ready to help you. Either way, you are not alone!"
