Every year, Women in Tech launches a code festival in order to fight gender disparity in the tech field. We are proud to partner with them since we regularly strive for more diversity in our campuses worldwide. In this article, we wanted to share the experience of a couple of women who joined our 9-week coding bootcamp and dived into a new career in tech.
Picture this: A set of experienced teachers lathers you in knowledge for 6 weeks before unleashing you onto your own projects, the most challenging part of the bootcamp. Suddenly you are building entire products in a group. It took you ages to build an admin panel and your users can reset their passwords, but no one at Demo Day wants to see that.
I studied computer systems in university, but by the age of 37, I had not done much in the area. For ten years, I worked in an insurance company, Império Bonança, as an automobile expert. What made me work there for so long was the flexibility the job allowed. But in 2014, I felt many changes in the company and in the business itself, so I started looking for other options.
We are in 39 cities worldwide.
