Hola, hola! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

This month has been quite gloomy for a variety of reasons but I'm hoping I can bring some light to your day! โ˜€๏ธ

In this issue, I'll be covering the following:

Table of contents

What's New ๐Ÿ†•

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? ๐Ÿค”

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 Iโ€™ve found helpful during the job search.

Ways to Collaborate ๐Ÿ’ก

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. ๐ŸŒฑ

Looking for folks who want to re-design this directory of apprenticeships and take it to the next level.

DiversifyMe ๐Ÿงญ

Looking for folks who are interested in converting this list of diversity scholarships to a website.


Looking for folks passionate about ERGs and want to collaborate on an online platform for ERG leads further.

Latinas Who Code Directory ๐Ÿ‘พโœจ

Looking for folks willing to collaborate on an open-source directory and community for Latina software engineers.

What I'm Looking Forward To ๐Ÿ”œ

Tech Intersections

I'll be speaking at Tech Intersections atย Mills Collegeย in Oakland, CA, this January. ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

Tech Intersections is an inspiring, accessible, and affordable conference for the women of color most underrepresented in computing.ย ๐Ÿ’›

That's a wrap! ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿฝ

That wraps up my third issue.

Iโ€™m always open to feedback and suggestions on content as I get this little newsletter ramped up.

Thanks for reading! ๐Ÿ’›
