I'm learning web design and I'm doing this so I can grow my video production business. If I have a client that needs a website, I want to be able to do that. I like CoderGirl because there are so many people here to help.

I really enjoyed the low pressure environment when I was learning to code. I was able to meet professionals that helped me learn more about the field. Now that I'm a full-time developer, I like coming to CoderGirl to help more women do what I did!
