Nevertheless, Amanda Capella Coded

codingcapella profile image Amanda Capella ・1 min read

I began/continue to code because...

I wanted to take control of my life. I wanted to pursue my own dream and build a life for myself: undefined by other's expectations based off my gender and life situation.

I recently overcame...

The fear of being the NOOB. Everyone is new at some point. I've embraced the stage I'm at and proudly seek ways to grow.

I want to brag about...

My QuickBooks integration I dev'd for my company, DispatchBot. I slayed it.

My advice for allies to support women who code is....

Never assume. Echo our voices in the meetings. Say our names on those calls. Make our presence something everyone is aware of.
