How SheCodes helped Niloofar start a new job as a web developer
Niloofar started her SheCodes journey in April 2022 and completed the SheCodes React workshop in October 2022
🙍♀️ Before SheCodes
Her other passions include jogging, traveling, connecting with nature, meditation and dancing. 💃 Oh and also cats - a passion that we share!
Now, Niloofar lives in Germany! She first moved there to work as a researcher, where her job was focused on data analysis using Python.
"During my work as a researcher, I was expected to do advanced analysis and code independently using Python without much help and guidance, which was very overwhelming for me. It brought me to a point where I hated coding...I started to search to find a way to make my situation better."
Niloofar's search brought her to SheCodes! 🤗
👩💻 Her SheCodes Experience
"I started to learn more about SheCodes and then decided to sign up for all 4 workshops. The courses were taught very well by Matt. He explained everything perfectly and I also loved the homework which we had at the end of each lesson."
Almost every SheCodes class comes with practical, hands-on homework to test your knowledge and help reinforce what you've learned. 📝
"Another thing that I really loved about the workshops was having the possibility to finish them at your own pace."
Niloofar used the SheCodes flexible schedule to learn quickly - she completed four workshops in just a few months, creating a portfolio of sophisticated projects to show off her coding skills! 💪
🙋 How SheCodes has Helped to Change Her Life
"After the first two workshops and finishing the SheCodes Plus final project, I realized that it was not me who wasn't good enough. The problem had been the lack of good mentoring and tutorials. SheCodes really helped me to realize how much I love coding and how exciting and fun it can be!"
Niloofar grew to love coding so much that she left her job as a researcher and began looking for a role as a front-end developer! 🤩 She went to an IT job fair and began applying, even before she'd finished studying with SheCodes.
"I really didn't expect it to happen this fast but I received three IT job offers from that job fair and they were all interested in the experiences that I gained from SheCodes workshops."
Niloofar started work as a junior front-end developer while finishing the SheCodes React workshop! Congratulations Niloofar on your achievements! 🥳
"I am very excited about my new position and I feel much more confident in coding and feel more ready to use my experiences with SheCodes in my new job!"
👩💼 Advice to Future SheCodes Students
"My advice to anyone who wants to learn to code is to be patient with yourself. This is a skill that everyone can learn...it is only a matter of time and practice. You only need to be patient and have a good study plan to follow, like SheCodes workshops!"
