Cohort 3 Capstone Projects

It’s hard to believe that Cohort 4 is already presenting their capstone projects today, but they are! As we think about their projects, we realized that we never shared the awesome projects that Cohort 3 did. Here are just a couple out of the 24 awesome projects from Cohort 3! Amira used Raspberry Pi and Ustream to make a Kitty Laser Robot to keep her cat entertained while she was at school. You can use Kari’s app, The Music Selfie, to…

Meet Calla!

1. What were you doing before you became a Software Engineer? I had many different jobs before joining Ada. When I first graduated, I worked as a financial consultant, where I worked in a reporting capacity so fortunately I learned to write SQL.

Introducing Alexandra- Sponsorship and Engagement Manager

Hello All! I’m Alexandra Holien and I am the Sponsorship and Engagement Manager here at Ada.   I grew up between Tacoma, Washington and the small town of Independence, Louisiana.  My dad was a truck driver whose business allowed for us to have a little bit of both worlds; the family filled small town atmosphere in Louisiana, and the city life of Tacoma, Wa.  It was an interesting and fun childhood that I think has given me a great appreciation…

Meet Tammy!

Hi! I’m Tammy and I’m a student in Ada Developers Academy’s fourth cohort. I have two wonderful young daughters and I’m writing this post to share with you my experience of being a full-time student and mom. My decision to apply to Ada wasn’t easy. Though it has been my dream to become a software developer, I had many reasons not to do it. It’s not easy to be a mom to two toddlers, go through seven months of intensive…
