Offline classes are a lot more social than online classes, even if they’re less convenient. More importantly, those social connections are your future network of fellow-coders. Following up on my previous post on the Best Online Coding Classes for Women, here is a list of offline classes for women in the USA and Canada: CANADA […]
Blogs with striking images get more attention, more clicks and higher search engine ranking. Presentations with interesting photos keep your audience focused and entertained. But finding the right images can be a challenge, and then there’s the cost and copyright to consider. What’s a blogger to do? 1) DIY (Do It Yourself) For a small […]
I just finished my first online course in CSS coding with Codagogy! As you can tell, I’m pretty excited about it. But first, an embarrassing disclaimer I’ve been working in CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) for many years, but like most web designers, I was self-taught through a collection of books and short online tutorials devoted […]
I hear many women say they’d like to learn to code, but very few who actually take a class. I’ve been wondering why. The main barrier seems to be at the dipping-a-toe-in-the-water stage. Today’s cult worship of technology has produced a tendency to idolize and prioritize developers over marketers, operations managers, etc. The sooner the […]
Having spent many hours researching and trying out various online coding classes, here are my personal recommendations for women interested in learning to code.

Fret not, sugarplum, this is your lucky day. I’ve tested out 3 of the best so you don’t have too. (See? You just got a whole lot happier.)
We are all capable of wearing more than one hat, but people tend to get confused when you tell them you do more than one thing. Especially if they seem totally unrelated. So how do you brand your myriad facets in a coherent manner?
Simple. It’s called Umbrella Branding.
Umbrella Branding: Think of it as broadcasting from the same station (you) using multiple channels (your services). To avoid confusion, each channel has a look and feel of its own, and the station also has its own overarching signature.
A professional custom website will cost you about half of what you spent on your last new car. Anywhere between $7,5oo and $30,000, depending on features (just like a car). I’m assuming you want something clean and elegant, like this, with custom graphics and a logo, maybe an integrated blog, some social media add-ons, and […]
When you create a logo for the web, you get to choose from millions of color, literally. This is because screen color is rendered in light which is projected onto a screen in RGB (Red Green Blue) format; printed color is rendered in ink, which comes from pigment, which is much more limited.
