freeCodeCamp is a free online educational program for all aspiring developers. What I really wanted to get down to are 2 things.

1) What value does it provide?
2) Where does it fall short?

We definitely answered both of those questions, and much more. As a bonus, there's tons of advice for aspiri…

In this web development podcast episode, I made the statement that within 5 years, under 50% of junior software engineers will have a Computer Science degree. Software engineering is a field that updates too quickly for college curriculums to keep up with at a fast pace, which is often why they're …

I invited 3 Springboard graduates on to talk about their experience at the coding bootcamp. If I'm not mistaken, this is one of the longest coding bootcamps I've reviewed so far.

I invited on Nucamp’s CEO, Ludo, to address much of the feedback from my previous video where I brought on 3 graduates to share their experiences at Nucamp. Given that it’s such a cheap coding bootcamp, we dove into many of the tradeoffs he chose to make when forming Nucamp. I think this is an inte…

Let me know …

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 co…

I absolutely loved the vibe of this group. It was just a silly, wholesome podcast episode. We shared humble experiences of what it’s been like for us as developers and more specifically, working mainly on the frontend. Then we came up with a strategy and mapped out on a timeline, of becoming a fron…

I got to talk with some coding bootcamp graduates that graduated from Le Wagon, a highly rated coding bootcamp on Course Report.

I'm a full-stack developer that is terrible with design, and I'm slowly learning more about UX and accessibility each year. I can't tell you how valuable it's been to start dipping my toes in the UX world, and how much of a better developer it's made me. So, I invited 3 people with UX/design backgr…
