Alumni Spotlight: Jo — From Attorney to Software Engineer

“I didn’t have a tech background, I’d never written a single line of code, I didn’t know what HTML was, I didn’t know anything. I think being at Code Fellows, having other people in the same boat as me, and then having instructors who had been through it, they were super empathetic. That really helped me.” — Jo Arroyo
