How Women Have Used Hackbright's Part-Time Courses to Pursue Technical Careers

Hackbright Academy's part-time courses have been designed specifically to make learning to code more accessible to women with full-time schedules. Check out how recent students have used these courses as a vehicle to pursue their technical ambitions:

KathrynKathryn Wu - From Teacher to Software Engineer: Part-time student Kathryn Wu decided to enroll in Hackbright Academy's Intro to Programming course to determine whether applying to Hackbright and completely changing her career would be the best decision for her.

I took the intro class because I was interested in the world of engineering, but wasn’t sure if programming or the learning environment at Hackbright would be a good fit for me. The intro class allowed me to gauge my interest in coding and confirm that I can learn effectively there so it was an easy decision at that point to commit to the fellowship!


Melissa-fabrosMelissa Fabros - From Little Coding Experience To Winning Google’s Summer of Code: Part-time student Melissa Fabros was initially not accepted into Hackbright's full-time software engineering fellowship, but that didn't stop her from pursuing her technical goals. She decided to enroll in Hackbright's part-time  Front-End Web Development and Full-Stack Web Development courses. Read about her journey.

I was accepted for Google Summer of Code 2015 this week.  Over 6,000 projects were proposed, and about 1,000 projects were accepted. This definitely wouldn’t have happened if I hadn’t participated in Hackbright’s part-time programs.
