Aspiring Female Engineers: Choosing a Coding Bootcamp


Join other aspiring female software engineers in finding the best coding bootcamp for you.

In partnership with Career Karma and SlackWomen Who Code SF is hosting a panel of successful female software engineers who got their start from a coding bootcamp. The goal is to help attendees answer the question: how do I choose which coding bootcamp to attend?

The panel will be moderated by Carly Robinson from Slack (Hackbright Graduate) and she will be joined by the following software engineers:

Gaby Andrade - DoorDash, Hackbright Graduate

Carolyn Conway - Lyft, Hackbright Graduate

Maddy Tavarez - Pinterest, Coalition 4 Queens Graduate - Part-Time Bootcamp

Abby Tiffany - Nordstrom, Lambda School Graduate

Christine Song - Postmates, App Academy Graduate

After the panel, we'll be bringing Career Karma's Peer Circles in person to discuss the panel and help jumpstart your coding journey. Peer Circles are small groups of people who are all at a similar point in their careers and gather (both online and in person) for the purpose of advancing their careers.

In addition to the panel and peer circles, executives from the top bay area coding bootcamps will be available throughout the evening to answer questions about their programs, including Kriti Parashar (App Academy Management - 10x Club) and Kira Hernandez (Trilogy Education Services Managment).

The agenda:

5:30pm: Doors open and food and drinks are served. Attendees can network and learn more from top bay area bootcamps before hearing from the experiences of the panelists.

6:30pm: Panel begins!

7:15pm: The panel concludes and attendees can then join an in person Career Karma peer circle to discuss the panel and take action on choosing a bootcamp.

Thank you to Slack for providing the space, food and drinks for this event. Slack is hiring for many roles in SF and elsewhere:

Note: While the focus of this event is on the experiences of women and their experiences with coding bootcamps, men are welcome to attend and are likely to find relevant insights as well!
