I’m Ali Spittel, the founder of WeLearnCode, where I write beginner-friendly posts on web development and software engineering careers. My blog has a readership of over 1.5 million people and my ebook “What I Wish I knew Before Learning to Code” has over 8k downloads and reached #4 on Product Hunt.
I started my career as a backend software engineer focusing on building data science pipelines, but I transitioned into teaching code a few years later.
I also co-host a podcast with three other women in tech called Ladybug Podcast where we talk all things career and code.
Outside of work, I live in Denver and spend a lot of my time in the mountains skiing and hiking with my dog and partner.
Ask me anything about self-teaching and learning to code, running a podcast, being a developer advocate, or anything else!
