RuLu 2012 Talk - http://rulu.eu

I taught myself to code and went from zero to a full-time programming gig in under a year. I will discuss my story, tools for new developers, and what I've learned from coaching with RailsGirls, particularly what we can do to teach new programmers, with a focus on women.

After graduating from the University of Chicago in 2006 with a degree in humanities/social sciences fields, Joan spent a couple of years in San Francisco working in theater as a stage manager and wishing her hours worked out better with all her friends at tech companies. After moving to Germany in 2009 and spending a year learning German, she set her sights on learning to program. She picked Ruby on Rails, and things took off. She quickly found herself in an internship for a respected Berlin Rails development shop, and soon after that landed a job with mediapeers.
