Alice Lieutier of Makers Academy discusses the issue of retraining with the Problem Busters, and explains how teaching the world to code (in perfect harmony) is so important right now.
As Head of Coaching, Alice describes the boot camp model for learning to become a software developer and contrasts semester length courses with the traditional route of 3 years at university.
She shares what she has discovered about the process of teaching, talks diversity and we discuss how we need more women in tech.
Finally we discover how anyone can learn to code and break down perceived barriers to "becoming a software engineer".
