What Alumni think of SheCodes

5/5 - Highly recommended

I was so pleased with how they structured the SheCodes Basics workshop. They gave just enough info at strategic times during the sequence of lessons so that I wasn't overwhelmed with extra info until I had already understood each step of the webpage-building process. I'm really happy with how fun they made the workshop with the challenges they chose to integrate into the lessons. The Slack community was great too for when I got stuck.
