Hackbright Academy Review - Does This Women's Only Coding Bootcamp Actually Empower Women?


You might have started hearing about women's only coding bootcamps popping up. Listening to some of the women I've mentored, I can promise you that some of these don’t deliver on their promise to set women up for success in the tech industry. My main objective for this episode was to see if this coding bootcamp helped women become more confident and resourceful, and actually put them in the software engineering industry. We got to talk about whether or not Hackbright Academy delivered on that promise.

Over a year ago, I created a brand new company (DONTHEDEVELOPER LLC) with a very ambitious goal. By the end of this year (2021), my goal is for my business, that helps junior developers get unstuck and get that first position, to become self-sustainable and allow me to do this full-time. If my content has helped you in any way and you'd like to help support me with this goal or get more involved with our community, please consider taking a look at some of the links below. Thank you so much to everyone who's believed in me and has helped support this venture. You're turning my dream into a reality!
