THE STORY BEHIND
Hi. I'm Madeline LeClair, a software engineer in NYC. I got my start as an engineer by attending a coding bootcamp called App Academy. Attending App Academy and learning to code changed my life. I got a job that I liked, looked forward to going to work, and had disposable income.
Before I started to program, I didn't know anything about coding. Heck, I couldn't even save a ruby file. A lot of my friends who also went to coding bootcamps didn't have a background in programming either. To get into the bootcamp of their choice, many of them took bootcamp prep classes. These classes cost my friends over $600 to take. I found this ridicules and wanted to make a better, and cheaper, alternative for people who wanted to go to a coding bootcamps like App Academy, Codesmith, Fullstack Academy, and other top bootcamps. Thus Programming 101 was born.
Programming 101 is an online school dedicated to helping new programmers learn to code, get into the coding bootcamp of their choice, and understand what it's like to be a fullstack developer or software engineer without spending an arm and a leg.
