Speakers' Profile
Ping, RoR Developer & Mentor @ NEXT Academy
She was a pharmacist about 2 years ago. To cut the long story short (or ask her personally in the event), she stumbled into the coding world.

She started her self-learning journey through Codecademy, free events, loads of determination, coding bootcamp and eventually got hired by NEXT. Not too bad for someone who has no programming background.

Irina, Frontend Engineer @ Mindvalley
Once you are in tech, you never look back. She is a computer science graduate and has been in IT since then. Although having a technical degree helps, front-end technologies progress so fast, it feels like sprinting.

She believes that building strong foundation helps to learn any language. It means, understand the data structures and practice your algorithms.

Chee Yim @ WWCode KL
"I am a coder and manager, mostly in technical projects, people (engineers) and community (womenwhocode)... I often find myself dabble in both technical and management." - extracted from her resume.

She's got something to say for those who feels they are stuck in the "Software Developer" or "Tester" title. She learns best when she's hands on (thanks to her impatience).
