The Yellow Duck podcast continues to broadcast to developers across the world. Whether you are a senior developer or just starting out in the tech world, you’ll find something here that will interest you. In this episode of the Yellow Duck Podcast, we welcome Laurence Bradford, founder of the site learntocodewithme.com. Some of you have been down the path yourself, some are embarking on it – either way, Laurence shares her experiences and talks about her current projects that will most definitely be something you can relate to. Who is she?

In her own words:

“I am the creator of Learn to Code With Me, where I help people learn how to code so they can get ahead in their careers and ultimately find more fulfillment in their lives. After teaching myself how to code at 22 years old, I discovered the abundance of professional opportunities that technological knowledge can offer. Today, I show others how digital skill acquisition can open doors to new professional possibilities. In addition, I am passionate about EdTech and using technology to break down barriers in the education system, and I hold a full-time job at Teachable as a Product Educator. My writing has been featured on Mashable, SitePoint, The Muse, and more. You can find me at learntocodewith.me or on Twitter @learncodewithme.”
