Description

After just two months of teaching themselves to code, Felicia and Jamal O'Garro got paid to build and fix other people's websites. And soon after that, they started Code Crew, the community that's taught over two thousand people how to code in just a year and half. We talk about what it's like to work as a couple, how they discovered tech, and how they used their coding passion to build a thriving community of learners.
