Taylor Facen

Working on building a bot that helps users practice for an interview. She is participating in BOTH the #100Daysofcode and #WomanMake Just F*ing Ship It challenge 🤯.

As it is hiring season, Taylor is building a bot that anyone can use to practice their interviewing skills and receive an analysis of your responses. To build the app, she is using Python, Flask, Twilio, and Send Grid.
Samantha Bretous

Working hard at completing the #100daysofcode challenge. She just started this month finds it to be truly valuable. Samantha was inspired to take on this challenge by this post. So far she has taken the time to update her personal website and create this post about Heap Maps 101.

Shanice Smith Attended the Grace Hopper Celebration. Here's what she had to say about her experience:

"My heart is full, my network is wide, and the possibilities for my future are limitless. I’m entirely grateful for the amazing opportunity to spend the last few days attending the Grace Hopper Conference. Being able to bond and learn from current and future leaders has been an unbelievable experience. Not only has my confidence risen, but my scope of the tech industry has grown and I’m so excited to be working towards my career in the field. I’m already looking forward to Grace Hopper Celebration 2020!"
