A weekly dose of inspirational stories about women in tech
Each issue will include stories about women in tech who are doing amazing and inspiring work. It will also include tips, advice and resources on coding for those who are just getting started.


I'm lovin' seeing so many women getting into blogging recently.

Blogging is a great way to build your professional brand and your online presence. Instead of letting people guess your interests, you can build your own narrative.

✍️ If you started to blog, please do let me know if it's around tech. I'd be happy to promote and feature it in this newsletter.

🌟 If you've been wanting to blog, but don't know where to start, check out this post by Ali Spittel on her blogging workflow.

Keep in mind that you don't have to be an expert to blog. Some of the best tutorials and posts are by beginners.

I'm finally catching up on my emails. If you've written to me in the past few months, I'll get back to you soon!

Words of Wisdom: Advice from Women in Tech 🙏

"You know you’ve grown a lot as a developer when you look at a code snippet from two years ago and your first reaction is: cringe + facepalm. Albeit uncomfortable, these moments are the best." - Sara Soueidan, freelance front-end UI/UX developer, trainer, author and speaker based in Lebanon [Read more]
"Both frontend and backend development can require a lot of logic. Backend: data modeling, heavy data manipulation, some security stuff. Frontend: data visualization, complex UI's, some performance stuff. 

I've worked on both sides professionally, one's not harder than the other." -
Ali Spittel, Software Engineer & Developer Advocate at, Tech director WomenWhoCodeDC & Lead instructor at GA.  [Read more]
