Design Meets Code

Dec. 26, 2017

If you've noticed that your Twitter feed has recently been bombarded with the hashtags #100DaysOfCode and #DailyCSSimage, you're not alone. Social media "code challenges" have become a popular fad for not only beginning coders, but for those who looking to add a new set of skills to their advanced repertoire. I just happened to stumble across this blog post in my Medium feed, and needless to say I was hooked.

With minimal drawing skills, Eleftheria Batsou was able to create incredible graphics using the coding skills she was learning via this post "A Beginner's Guide to Pure CSS Images" and their free email course. What impressed me the most was how much she improved from her first image to her last, truly embodying the idea that anyone can code.

Her conclusion is as follows:

"This challenge helped me in so many different ways:

  • I got better at CSS/SCSS, I also learned about animations.
  • I learned new tools about colors, shapes, and animations.
  • I connected with people all around the world on Codepen, Twitter, and Youtube.
  • I shared my knowledge on Codepen and Youtube and I hope I helped and inspired other developers.
  • I learned to be more patient and focused on my image and my code rather than get distracted by little things.
  • I got better at time management.
  • I did not get better at drawing!"

Women Empowering Women: The Women@ Financial Literacy Program

Inspired by the 2019 Women, Money, and Power Study, commissioned by Allianz Life Insurance Company, which indicated that over half (57%) say they wish they were more confident in their financial decision making, a group of women were inspired to act.

Supported by the Women@ employee resource group and Life@ benefits team, a team of five women joined together to empower their fellow community members and peers to become confident in their finances.
