Skillcrush, your ‘how to get started guide to tech’.
In 2008, Adda Birnir found herself laid off with some light technical skills- she knew this was the time to learn to code and become an indispensable asset. After a few freelancing jobs and a position at MTV.com, Adda was ready to bridge the gender gap in tech and teach women to code. She founded Skillcrush, the ultimate online destination to help others – especially women – learn how to code, design a website, and build a digital portfolio.
You can choose from their “Blueprints,” 3-month online courses in Web Design or Web Development. While the Skillcrush blueprints are online, they offer blocks of office hours and access to classmates and instructors to create a structured learning environment. You can expect an email each morning with your goals for the day and choose times that work for you to interact with mentors and other students.
So whether you’re looking for a more lucrative and fulfilling job, to design new products, or even to kickstart a new venture, Skillcrush will demystify technology and help you completely transform your career.
