Each summer, Less Annoying CRM teaches folks from underrepresented groups in tech how to code. Coding fellows spend the summer working in the LACRM office learning programming from CEO Tyler King and other LACRM developers. While our fellows usually start with little to no programming experience, they end the summer with a fully-functional web app!
You can learn more about the coding fellowship experience here, and let’s meet the 2019 fellows!
Eva is a St. Louis native and a rising senior at Washington University in St. Louis. She is double majoring in Cognitive Neuroscience and Spanish with a minor in Computer Science. In her free time, she loves ice skating, swimming, and just being outside. Eva says that she has already learned more during her first few weeks of the fellowship than in all of her coding classes so far. This summer, she’s excited to create a task management app from scratch to help people better plan for and accomplish their goals.
Originally from California, Hannah is a rising sophomore studying Neuroscience at Washington University in St. Louis. Hannah likes to read, explore new restaurants, watch Marvel movies, and play soccer in her free time. Her favorite parts about LACRM so far are the comfortable environment and friendly people, and her main goals for the coding fellowship are to become confident in her coding skills and explore the role of programming in science.
Michaela is a rising sophomore at Webster University studying English and Philosophy. A St. Louis native, she is a plant enthusiast and also plays the cello. She also enjoys reading and writing personal essays in her free time. Her favorite part about LACRM is having the structure of the fellowship to create a project she truly cares about: an online literary magazine with curated volumes and onsite submissions. Michaela hopes to be a published author one day -- perhaps on her own site!
Originally from St. Louis, Shahd is a rising junior at Washington University in St. Louis. She's studying business and computer science, and she enjoys playing tennis in her free time. Shahd is fascinated by the intersection of business and technology, and she's excited to improve her coding skills while getting an insider perspective on the tech industry during the coding fellowship this summer.
