From Zumba Instructor to Website Developer – Women in Technology in Detroit

In December 2013 a fearless young lady, Chandra Floyd decided to “Awaken the Mature Geek,” and attend Sisters Code Weekend Website Warrior Experience. Chandra took a break from her work as a Zumba Instructor, and decided to learn to code using Java Script, HTML, and CSS. She did not have previous programming experience, but at Sisters Code…that is not a problem! Sisters Code offers an unconventional style of coding education where we provide: motivation, inspiration, sisterhood, and eliminating barriers by addressing the digital divide and providing all participants with the hardware and software needed to be successful in our classes – definitely not a “one hit wonder.” As proven with Chandra we are transforming the lives of women through technology

In the video she mentioned that the class was life changing, I think she didn’t realize how fast that change would come. One month after the class, Chandra shared some excellent news. I will let Chandra tell you in her own words:

“I’m doing it!!!! I am making my dream a reality. I found an opportunity and seized it. A woman commented in a group that she wanted to do a certain thing (whatever it was I forget) but first she had to get her website in order. I inboxed her and said that in addition to my Zumba classes, I do websites now. I’m looking to build a portfolio and I’d like to volunteer to work on her site.

She agreed to meet me, and I have my first stakeholder meeting this Saturday! I’ll use the resources from Sisters Code to create a checklist of questions to ask her and to define expectations. I will put a time limit and parameters so the project doesn’t drag on forever.

*singing* I’m so excited! I just can’t hide it! I’m about to lose control and I think I like it!” – Chandra Floyd.
