Featured Woman 👩💻
Alex and LGTBQ+ in Tech Newsletter
Alex is such a wonderful soul and a multi-passionate person! Following her interests and seeing her ideas through is what has got her into iOS Development to begin with – which is such an awesome example of how one can get into tech! She is self-taught, badass and all about community, running the first LGBTQ+ in Tech newsletter.
Iman started learning AI and spreading tech knowledge on her Instagram!
In her own words:
“Hallo! I am Iman Mohi, 19, I am pursuing undergrad in computer science. When I was planning to get into CSE, I was suffering from a lack of counselling and mentoring. Basic questions like Which programming language to start with? Were problematic for me but it felt embarrassing to ask such a question which I now realise is fine to ask. So I recently started to answer basic questions like these on my Instagram handle and I am thinking of starting a YouTube channel as well. I am happy I finally started this.”
It’s Kimi’s birthday!
In her own words:
“Happy Birthday To Myself!!!
Thanks a lot, God for giving me another year of life! The most wonderful truth is, I’m not getting old, I’m just becoming experienced. Due to lockdown many people, friends are not here with me but so what quarantine can’t stop me. And I am celebrating my birthday with my family and friends too. With the help of tech tools, it’s easy to catch them and celebrate my day!!!”
Meg celebrated her birthday!

YOLT – the power of combining two AI systems – created and shared by Andrea
“It shows a different perspective to the field of AI. Understanding the idea of how merging existing tools can generate more value to a company than just trying to build something from scratch. Shows the trade-off between execution time and generated value.”
Self Taught Problems – created by Nicole
Learning a new skill from scratch on your own can be daunting and overwhelming and Nicole has started a wonderful series on the topic. Highly recommended for anyone who is teaching themselves to code 🙂

Awesome ideas of projects to build if you’re looking to practice your Front End skills!
Career and Education Decisions – How to Make the Right Choice? – created and shared by me 🙂
There are tons of career opportunities in tech, with new ones being added every day -which is awesome! However, it can be a bit overwhelming when making a decision about which path to choose: in terms of education and professionally. The same goes for those trying to make a career switch – how do you make that important decision?
Let me share my framework for this!
Taking Care of Your Mental Health During Self Isolation – Part 2 – created and shared by me 🙂
