After taking SheCodes, the interest bug in coding stayed and I kept looking for Web Development courses that I could do in person to keep learning. I first heard about SheCodes+ during the SheCodes workshop and decided to apply as soon as applications opened.
SheCodes+ was exactly what I was looking for [to expand my coding knowledge] and was a third of the price of other courses I’d researched. It’s one of more affordable courses right now in Lisbon, which is one of the main reasons why I applied. It gives us the opportunity to learn without getting us in debt!
But, also it was very interesting to meet other women in class, everyone had a different story and were there for several reasons. It was a good way to share our experiences and to get to know new people that are also new to the coding world.
I really enjoyed learning with other women! We had a great time during classes and supported each other when someone needed help. Actually, after SheCodes+ ended, a colleague from our class had the idea to keep weekly meetings to support each other to continue to code
…and anyone who wants can join us. This is a great idea because we continue to have scheduled time to focus on our coding skills.
