5 Things We Love - In Tech and Digital - This Week! 9/15/17

I'm back with a brand new batch of amazing people, places, and things in the tech and digital world. This week's list is filled with badasses who launched web apps, started podcasts and are all around jills-of-all-trades. I wouldn't want to spoil too much, though. Check out who we've got below!

How We Built Our First Full-Stack JavaScript Web App In Three Weeks

Sure, completing coding bootcamp is cool, but nothing beats building your first product. Enter Sophia Ciocca. In this piece, she outlines the entire process of building her first app, from ideation to deployment. If you're looking for a clear and organized approached to app building with a tangible example, this is for you!

Hellbent Podcast

It seems that a podcast always makes its way to this list. That's because they're soo good. Seriously, get with it. Hellbent was inspired by the presidential election and features two friends' hot takes on politics and current events with a feminist twist. Subscribe!

Girl Vow Mentoring

Is there such a thing as too much mentorship and advocacy? I don't think so. And Girl Vow Mentoring isn't just another mentoring org. They're truly changing the lives of young girls by educating them on things like how to plan their careers and paths through academia. Their resources give the girls the much needed confidence to go out and conquer the world, which is always a good thing. Check them out and sign up to be a mentor while you're at it!


Why women can't just 'get over it

Thanks to the Google Memo, gender diversity and inclusion conversations are more important than ever. In this piece, Wanda Pratt breaks down why women won't take their discrimination lying down. Filled with anecdotes and much needed context, this is a great piece to ground readers in why the fight to end the gender gap is just getting started and why we need each other to end it.

Sarah Drasner

Her Twitter bio reads, "Award-winning speaker. Sr. Developer Advocate @Microsoft. Writer @Real_CSS_Tricks. Cofounder, https://webanimationworkshops.com/." I know what you're thinking, "how many hats can one person wear?" But seriously, sometimes you stumble across someone who is so awesome that you have to recognize them. Oh, if you have time check out her site and sift through her writing, speeches, and design work.

An Inside Look at the World of Pre-Sales with Skedulo’s Cehrin Elyas

Cehrin Elyas spends a few hours each week with the imaginary characters she’s dreamed up. One of them is Donald, a 55-year-old man with dementia. Another is Mia, a support worker who cares for people like Donald and regularly takes him to get coffee or lunch.
