What graduates say about Matt

Valeria Strusi, SheCodes Alumni

โ€œMatt is a great instructor! Lessons are approachable and easy to understand -- but also quite challenging, for someone who has no background on coding. If you get stuck, there is always someone ready to help you. It made starting to code a lot less scary. Most importantly, it was a lot of fun! I can't wait to learn more.โ€

Gina Medranda, SheCodes Alumni

โ€œIf you want to actually learn HTML, CSS, and Javascript basics - take this course with Matt. After taking a bunch of other courses in-person and online, this is the only one where I truly felt that I understood everything. My goal was to have functional knowledge of Javascript basics, and I definitely gained those skills. I'm very excited to take the next step in learning more so I can make my designs and illustrations come to life.โ€

Jenny Hak, SheCodes Alumni

โ€œI am so glad I chose SheCodes for my first coding workshop! Matt is a great instructor and really makes it easy to understand. Even though it was challenging, I had so much fun! I can't wait to learn more with the other workshops :) Thank you SheCodes for this amazing opportunity!โ€

Testimonials

What Alumni think of SheCodes

5/5 - Highly recommended
๐ŸŽ“Graduated 2 months ago

The SheCodes Basic's program was a great introduction to coding. I thoroughly enjoyed the bite sized classes and enjoyed the challenges that the course offered. Matt was very thorough in giving you everything you need, but still offering opportunities to figure stuff out on your own. I will be jumping into the Pro course and cannot wait to see what else I will learn!

5/5 - Highly recommended
๐ŸŽ“Graduated 8 months ago

This is a great workshop! Between the lecture videos and the challenges in each lesson, the material is delivered in a clear, concise way. Before any other beginner coding workshops or courses, and believe me, I've looked at TONS, I'd suggest SheCodes. It's the most beginner friendly workshop I've found and the community is so supportive and talented!

5/5 - Highly recommended
๐ŸŽ“Graduated 9 months ago

This 3-week beginners course has taught me so much, I highly recommend it! Matt is a great teacher and the 24/7 support within the community was very nice to have. Within the final project I thoroughly got to put into practice what I have learned. I will continue with the more advanced workshops very soon!
