Hello, World!
(Kelly) What: Welcome to the lady bug podcast! I’m Kelly, I’m Ali, I’m Emma, and I’m Lindsey and we’re debugging the tech industry. (Lindsey) We’ll dive into topics within tech, entrepreneurship and careers. (Emma) Why: There’s a major lack of technical podcast out there so we’ve decided to start one. We want to give women in the tech industry a voice by sharing our diverse experiences and advice. But first, here’s a bit about us. Intros: Kelly Vaughn I’m a frontend developer and run a full-service marketing agency. I taught myself to code when I was 11 and turned a hobby into a full-time job after a long journey through undergrad and grad school. My agency focuses solely on Shopify, so when I’m coding, I’m spending most of my time building out Shopify themes, writing Shopify Scripts for Plus stores, and doing basic Shopify app development in Ruby on Rails. (How many times can I say Shopify in one sentence?) Outside of the actual day-to-day work I do, I’m really passionate about making my journey known as a woman entrepreneur in tech - the successes, failures, and everything in between. I want starting a career in tech to be as accessible as possible to everyone interested in giving it a shot. Ali Spittel I’m a mostly self-taught software engineer. I really love writing code, especially in Python and JavaScript. I work at Dev and split my time between writing code and doing developer advocacy. Before that, I taught at a bootcamp, and teaching code is my favorite thing to do.I want to make coding more accessible to people from all sorts of backgrounds. Emma Wedekind What we do: I was originally a biology major but decided I hated it so I turned to computer science. I’m a Software Engineer at LogMeIn where I build design systems using React. I am an instructor at Egghead, I am a panelist for JSParty, and I blog. I’ve also started an open source project Coding Coach that promotes mentorship in the tech industry. Our passions: I love CSS and design systems. I love Gatsby and animations. I am looking forward to chatting more about that. Lindsey Kopacz What we do - I’ve been a web developer for 5 years. Started teaching myself in 2012 and then got my first job in May 2014. I started off in Drupal and then started playing around with VueJS and React a couple years ago. Now I am a React Developer and creating data visualizations with d3! It’s no secret that I am an accessibility fiend. My mission in life isn’t really to convince stakeholders to be a good person, it’s to influence end empower developers to care about accessibility. (Ali) Upcoming Episodes: How to start coding, What are the hot technologies right now, how to get your first developer job, how to balance side projects and more! So head over to our site: ladybug.dev to hear about upcoming episodes! Can’t wait to share more with you all!
