What got you interested in IT/Development?
I’m a marine biologist and my husband an IT professional as well as a few in-laws, so I’ve learned by osmosis. In high school I took computer BASIC and PASCAL classes (yes, I’m that old) but drifted away during college. I’m working on a 2nd masters in GIS which requires coding skills so I’m relearning all things computer science again.
What kind of devolopment work do you do?
None professionally. I’m still taking classes in coding related to GIS and have a few lab projects focusing on predictive modeling that I’d like to expand when I have some more time this summer.
What are your favorite languages to develop in?
What would you like to see more of in the BFC community?
I’d love to see some hackathons for those willing to mentor newbies. Even virtual sessions would be cool. Thanks.
Great ideas, J! Would love to host a BlackFemaleCoders Hackathon one day!
