Meet The Founder, Iris Nevins
A former teacher turned software engineer and engineering manager
Hi, my name is Iris Nevins, and in 2017 I decided to pursue a career in technology after realizing my friends & family were getting left behind by the technology revolution.
I attended a coding bootcamp and got my first job at Mailchimp as a junior software engineer. Eventually I became an engineering manager while also organizing online & in-person events to introduce professionals to innovative technologies.
Working in technology has shown me how vast the opportunities are for every day people to adopt tools that can benefit them greatly.
I have hosted over 240 online events & 30+ IRL events for thousands of people. We've built a robust & diverse network and now we are launching a subscription-based community for tech literacy education & networking.
I also work as a full-time engineering manager at Workday!
