Last week, we introduced our new series of student stories that we’re calling Iron Journeys. These interviews are unaltered, raw and real – they will show you what it’s really like to be a student at The Iron Yard. Today we’re introducing you to Emily Znamierowski, who took our Front-End Engineering course in Nashville this summer after moving to the Music City from Hawaii. Our co-founder Eric Dodds sat down with Emily during her last week of the course.
During the conversation, you’ll hear about how Emily quit learning to code online because she didn’t feel like she had support, how she found her place at The Iron Yard, and how she’s preparing to enter the world of technology after Demo Day. Enjoy (and watch for the high five)!
