Sharon is CodeNewbie's first apprentice developer. She is very passionate about tech and education and is involved with Girl Develop It, RailsBridge, and The Firehose Project. She also works for Skillcrush where she teaches newbies how to code. When she's not in front of a computer, you can find her reading a good book, playing board games with friends, or at the gym.
In December, CodeNewbie put out applications for the CodeNewbie Apprenticeship, and in 10 days received 322 applications from all over the world. Many interviews later, Sharon Siegel was chosen to be the first apprentice. She talks about her coding journey, her passion and active involvement in building coding communities, and her goal of moving into a full-time developer role.
