Hola, hola! 👋🏽
This month has been quite gloomy for a variety of reasons but I’m hoping I can bring some light to your day! ☀️
In this issue, I’ll be covering the following:
What’s New 🆕
A Day in the Life
I often get asked this question by folks I mentor aspiring to become software engineers. What does a day/week look like for you? 🤔
And, of course, no day is the same, but overall, the structure more or less looks like this.
Resources for Laid Off Software Engineers
I want to offer some support for software engineers who have been laid off because I know firsthand how arduous the job search process can be.
Here are some resources I’ve found helpful during the job search.
Ways to Collaborate 💡
I have a few projects in different stages that I’d love to collaborate with others on.
These would be great opportunities for folks looking to add a project to their resume.
Looking for folks who want to re-design this directory of apprenticeships and take it to the next level.
Looking for folks who are interested in converting this list of diversity scholarships to a website.
ERG HQ 🕊
Looking for folks passionate about ERGs and want to collaborate on an online platform for ERG leads further.
Looking for folks willing to collaborate on an open-source directory and community for Latina software engineers.
What I’m Looking Forward To 🔜
I’ll be speaking at Tech Intersections at Mills College in Oakland, CA, this January. 🙌🏽
Tech Intersections is an inspiring, accessible, and affordable conference for the women of color most underrepresented in computing. 💛
That’s a wrap! 🙌🏽
That wraps up my third issue.
I’m always open to feedback and suggestions on content as I get this little newsletter ramped up.
Thanks for reading! 💛
