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.


It'll be a short newsletter today as I'm writing to you from Dodgeville, WI.

I work for a mostly remote team. We get together once a year to go over accomplishments, plan for the next year, co-work and get to know each other better. We also share any interesting things we've learned.

 We learned about Raspberry Pi yesterday which was really fun. Anything involving hardware seems scary to me. After setting one up and getting to learn about it a little, it doesn't seem that intimidating. Have you worked with one before? If you have any cool project ideas, let me know.

As always, I'd love to hear about what you are working on as well and any feedback about the newsletter. Feel free to reply and let me know what you think! 

Happy Coding!

Get Inspired: Women in Tech Doing Amazing Things 🎉

  Juniors in Tech by Keziyah Lewis
Tae’lur successfully changed her career without a CS degree, and without attending a bootcamp. Instead, she chose to teach herself using online courses, spending hours after work in front of her computer learning and practicing as much as she could.
Rachel spends her free time building robots, creating hardware art, and making silicone molds of her friends' faces. She shares how she was first introduced to the hardware world and breaks down what a simple hardware project looks like.
