On Monday, May 24th, as participants started their 11th week of course instruction, we hosted our 12th Town Hall with guest speaker Kedasha Kerr, a Design Systems Engineer at a large insurance company. Kasha helps new coders learn about tech through her Instagram and Twitter handles @itsthatlady.dev.
She has a bachelor’s degree in social work and attended a coding Bootcamp to make her transition into tech. She first started coding in December 2018. By December 2019, she was moving across the country for a tech job that almost tripled her income.
She also told people to ask lots of questions when in a new job. “Be open and have an appetite for learning, as there’s so much to learn!”
