About this event

Dreams turned into nightmares, then back to dreams when this curious, mid-50s Baby Boomer, came face to face with Javascript!

Bybreen Samuels lost track of time and nearly her mind when she dove into the self-taught journey to becoming a software engineer. Her unconventional route towards tech nirvana is littered with deep sighing. Plus, throwing her hands in the air, shouting and staring blankly, at a screen, for what seemed like lifetimes!

Come along to hear how Bybreen managed to turn the corner, collect some certificates and regain her resting heart rate. Also, you’ll learn how meeting ‘Sophie the Robot and the idea of Flying Cars’ expanded her world of possibilities.
