Delighted to be announced as a finalist in the 2019 FDM EveryWoman Tech Awards among many inspiring #WomenInTech 🤓 in the Rising Star category!
Looking forward to meeting other women in technology at the award show in March and am very grateful for the nomination and recognition.
Taking place to celebrate International’s Women’s Day, the awards are a timely reminder that only 15% of people working in STEM roles in the U.K. are female and just 5% of leadership positions in the tech industry are held by women.
“Achieve, Elevate and Inspire” is this year’s rally cry
Looking back over the past year, it has been a whirlwind and I hope this can bring me more opportunities to dispel the STEM stereotype.
I was thinking about how I could expand my coding knowledge in my spare time, without having to sit at a computer to learn.
So I took a look at the “learn to code” apps on the Apple App Store, and after trying out a few I found that the reviews and the ease of use is in the Mimo App.
So give it a go – it may be for you 🤓 📱
TechCrunch did a great article on their opinion of it: https://techcrunch.com/2016/08/19/mimos-new-app-teaches-you-how-to-code-on-your-iphone/?guccounter=1
1) Codecademy – Learn to code for free
2) Udemy – Not only IT courses free/paid
3) IT Online Learning – Paid certifications

Many of these websites are what I use in my spare time to gain some technical coding knowledge, but they are also good for learning business “soft” skills too!
Take a look 🙂
