Success Stories

LaShana

LaShana had the skills, ambition, and drive to succeed as a software engineer, but without a college degree, she couldn’t get her foot in the door to prove herself. While working as a bus driver she honed her skills through CoderGirl, and landed a job as a systems engineer at MasterCard.

Padmini

Padmini

Padmini received a degree in technology in her native country India, but as a new mother she didn't have a chance to practice her skills, so finding a technology job in the US proved challenging. Through LaunchCode's CoderGirl meetup, she sharpened her skills, and landed an apprenticeship at MasterCard where she is now a full time software developer.
