I’ve been meaning to write a post about what exactly I do for work. I usually tell people that I do marketing for a software company called Verisage, which is true, but I also am the program director for a 9-week Web Development program called Dojo Dev Camp. Basically, in 9 intense weeks, we provide everyday people with enough training to get their foot in the door to a full-time, Jr. Development position, which, by the way, makes an average starting salary of $50,000 to $85,000. According to Glassdoor.com, Utah alone is currently short 3,000 developers. America? – about 250,000. The jobs are out there, people just need the training; and that’s where we come in. Don’t think someone will really hire you without a college degree? Check this infographic out:
I got to meet the creator of a super cool social app today. It’s called Studio and it’s more about creating content to share with your friends rather than just reposting. I can’t wait for it to come out on Android!! Oh yeah, and the chick in the BYU hoodie to the right -totes me.

I created this Infographic for a recent Dojo Dev Camp project. I had no idea how much influence women had and still have on the Computer Science industry. Unfortunately, because of discouragement and the false idea that Computer Science is “men’s work” there are much fewer women studying Computer Science today compared to almost three decades ago. Our Python programming school, Dojo Dev Camp and the Utah Women in Tech Council are determined to help change this difference by offering a scholarship for women.
