MotherCoders with Tina Lee

tina-lee

“There was a need to create a space where mothers felt welcome, because our challenges – they’re very different from people who are learning who don’t have these types of caregiving responsibilities.”

MotherCoders is a program that helps mothers gain technical skills with the support of a community and benefits like on-site childcare.

Tina Lee is the Founder of MotherCoders, having created the program to meet her own need after trying to find existing support systems while learning how to code.
