Virtual Workshop with Le Wagon
March 31 @ 12:30 pm - 2:00 pm BST
Join us for this virtual lunchtime workshop perfect for anyone looking to build remote teams, brought to you by Le Wagon.
Come to this workshop and learn how to become technical from Le Wagon coding bootcamp alumni and Founder, Sahar Khan.
After spending 3 years at Amazon working as a Manager in Operations and moving up the ranks, I realized that I was not on a career path that I was passionate about. I had been thinking about building an app to fix a problem I truly care about: Increasing inclusion and participation in endurance sporting events by enabling new-comers to the sport to learn, practically, how to train. I spent some time researching the best strategy to make it happen and after some soul searching realised that I was going to learn to code and build this myself. I completed the 9 week LeWagon intensive web-development bootcamp, with the last two weeks building a basic MVP of my product. The 6 months after the boot camp were spent touching up and testing the app before launching it late last year.
Learn about Sahar’s background, her career goals and path so far, and why she chose to embark on Le Wagon. You’ll also be talked through how bootcamps work and the curriculum, especially how the program can help Founders to understand and communicate with their technical teams. You’ll be given an example of how to use the course as a springboard to build startups like her app MyFinishLine, and how to build a supportive network in London. If time, there will be a chance for some practical examples and open Q&A about all things tech, bootcamps, founder-hood and career changes.
Le Wagon is the #1 ranked coding bootcamp worldwide, operating in 39 cities and 22 counties with almost 7,000 alumni at present. Their London office is based in Hoxton and they help creative entrepreneurs learn to code, change their lives, careers or launch their startup. The course is very product focused and by the end alumni (from all ages/backgrounds & walks of life) can build an MVP from scratch. They have full-time, part-time versions and also a new Data Science bootcamp launching in June.
