Title: "Matchmaking for Coders! And why 1+1=3!" by Isabella Hoesch

(15 mins)Teaching yourself to code can be extremely lonely and inefficient! Learn how an accountability partner can make the difference to your coding-journey and how pair-programming can boost your efficiency. Working with a peer can not only result in great projects for your portfolio … sharing the coding adventure expands your network and often results in a long-lasting friendship.
Join in for a lightning talk about Productivity and Goal achievement in the tech space.

About Isabella Hoesch
Isabella is a foremost self-taught coder who started her career as a behavioural data scientist in a tech company in the silicon valley. Shifting into tech with a business degree confronted her with all the difficulties of self-teaching to code.
Seeing how many aspiring coders struggle to keep motivated and to reach their learning-goals, inspired her to found Codum, a platform that matches coders world-wide for effective and collaborative goal-achievement.
