🎲 I'm excited to have Nadya Primak, front-end lead and game developer, share her story with us this week. Her main advice to us is to "Take baby steps. The tech industry is so overwhelming that it is very easy to look at it and just run away screaming. When I was starting out I forced myself to ignore all of the noise and just focus on completing a small project. I think this is how I maintained my sanity and also built my confidence." Read her story here.
It was Indigenous Peoples' Day on Monday. I wanted to celebrate the day somehow and was pretty disappointed that I didn't know any Indigenous People in Tech. After some research, I made a thread on a few Native Americans in tech that we should get to know and follow. Check it out!
👩💻 I'm making good progress on Diversify Tech. I added several bootcamp scholarships to the site. If you are considering a bootcamp, make sure to take a look at the site for scholarships available to women. Let me know if you have suggestions on what else I should add.
I'd love to hear about what you are working on as well as any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think.
Happy Belated Ada Lovelace Day!
