As a sales associate at a pharmacy, Web Development Cohort Evening 9 graduate Lwam Tekie was always curious about how the website she used at her job worked. Having never touched a piece of code, her curiosity led to conversations with Nashville Software School (NSS) alumni who inspired her journey into the world of web development. “I talked to NSS alumni who had nothing but great things to share about their learning experience,” she shares.
Lwam quickly realized that NSS was unlike any traditional schooling she has experienced in the past, providing her with new challenges to overcome, including a busy schedule with class two evenings a week and Saturdays, plus a weekly study group. Even still, Lwam says confidently in her podcast, “when I see how far I’ve come, I would do [this bootcamp] over and over again.” You can listen to her full podcast here.
What I love about web development is the challenge of forming ideas and turning them into a reality.”
Lwam is looking for an opportunity that will allow her to continue using her skills in full stack development, particularly in C# and SQL. She is continuing to build on her knowledge of C# and SQL by researching, reading and practicing her skills in web development.
